    Hey JP, No jumps in the way you play this set?? They have been teaching it that way out west since at least 1990.
    They'res skipping steps but not emphazied the way they performed it.

    Bizarre. THey're using the short sticks like they're swords, striking with the wrist pointed forward. You get too much recoil that way, and the stick stands a better chance of getting thwacked out of your hand. I always hold it like a hammer, 90 deg. from the wrist. Full impact, no recoil, sets up a quick second strike. It's not really our form, per say, since they're standing that high, and prancing like fairies.

    Hmmmm....bad. It almost looks like someone who is trying to do wushu lifted an SD form and then wushu-ized it. Kind of like regurgitating something that was originally regurgitated to begin with...LOL! It actually reminds me of that form the dude from Fight Science did, when he regurgitated Lohan Chien and Fei Hu Chu Tung---it looked....well, like a form the guy learned on a lunch break. Better than Green Dragon's Whirlwind Fairy Form, but still not, uh, great.

    Jumps? We don't jump in ATL, but you move forward kind of like the way you do in broadsword---more like a hibbity-hop.

    Crazy mad drunk

    Found this video from out west. It's the crazy mad drunk form. Does anyone else do it this way? I learned this back in '85 and this is alittle different.

    I watched some the other videos he has and on a positive note the guy has good flexibility.

    While there may have been some editing to it, no, that is not the way I remember it. They have added quite a few moves from the Immortals set it appears. The front kick, back kick before clipping the foot is from Chou Kou Chu*(which there is no front kick/back kick there in the original form), the twist strike looks like the ones from Li Ti Kue, after the reverse smash the hand sequence is a bit off....

    Anyway, its just a little different not necessarily wrong.
