    Hakka show in Fujian

    Most of the stuff there is modern performance stage wushu stuff and modern performance "Daoist" hybrid Taiji stuff.
    There is a big push to make martial arts look like super high class scholar warrior fantasy fine arts. Part of that is trying to link them with calligraphy. I've seen a few examples like that of people doing random vague hand waiving Neo-Wudang "Daoist" nonsense with big paint brushes.
    It's not anything traditional though.

    The stuff shown there that is somewhat connected to local Hakka arts is mostly so called "Wumei Quan" (called Wu Mei Hua Zhuang Ba Fa Quan).
    I'll be honest I'm not a fan of that lady. She isn't very skilled from what I've seen. But she went to the media and completely lied abiout the origins and history of the style making up a story that is purely her own creation and completely at odds with both the known history of the style and the oral traditions of the style. But by doing that she got lots of media attention and got sole official recognition as the traditional inheritor of the style, the writing out the actual skilled traditional masters of the style.
    Looking at the number of students she is very successful with it as local students come to her, the sole successor recognized by the media and government. Plus the story she made up about it being a style only taught to Hakka women has basically disenfranchised all the She ethnic group men who were the people who actually historically practiced the style

    Aside from that the last picture is a teacher of Liancheng Quan, the most popular system among local Hakka in that area.
