    Tremendous upper body strength, forearms like steel and a horse stance that is as rooted as a tree.

    That and all the other stuff

    cheers
    Kung Fu is good for you.

    If you can't tell that someone is a good master, then the person probably isn't. Even when faking, the master will slip something. If you are rooted, you are rooted, that simple. Root, by the way, is one main characteristic of hung gar.
    Let people make mistakes; it's the easiest way to learn and remember what not to do.

    I'm with Kung Lek on this one.

    If he does'nt have the iron forearms and solid rooted stance then something is wrong.

    The same can be said for a Black Tiger master.

    Afriad I can't help you that much here

    You might ask some of the others on the forum here. I haven't really done much in Hung Gar research in years. I did some Taiwan Hung Men stuff in our last few issues (May June 2003 & Jul Aug 2003) but not much with Mainland Hung Gar in a while. Sorry.

    I have a fairly old book on the Hung Gar Tiger/Crane form by Bucksam Kong, which is quite good (though I'm not a hung gar practitioner).

    go here to get Lam Sai Wing's Three published books on Gung Gi Fook Foo, Fu Hok and Tid sen Kuen in english.

    I also have Kong's book and even a few others, but the ones from the source will always be the best.

    cheers

    The above link does not have Fu Hok translated (yet)

    You can also get translations for the 3 books + the training manual at http://www.quandoman.com/videos.htm

    Look at the bottom.

    Also, sifu is coming out with an original book (yeah, it's been almost done for a while) Looks like the presale link is taken off the site but it will come soon.

    I do not ever see Sifu do anything that could be construed as a hula dancer- hasayfu
