    Thanks guys
    Sammo was one of the kung fu kids that was making all the movies back in the 60's and 70's. He has extensive knowledge of kung fu. He is pretty good too.

    Doing CLF in a movie and "knowing" CLF are 2 different things. Sammo Hung is a martial arts director in addition to being an actor. He is very "sing mok" and would know how to watch CLF and do it in a movie. This is very basic for kung fu movies.

    sammo is another bejing opera trained guy. Like Jackie Chan. I believe they were school mates in same.

    they went on to look at other things, maybe even learn some, but they are trained first and foremost in beijing opera style kung fu.

    which is very difficult by the way. Only top notch get to be there and can you imagine how hard it is to be top notch in a country with a billion people?

    yeah, it's hard. The mediocre students are advanced compared to many of us burrito eating slobs.
    Kung Fu is good for you.

    ya sammo hung was jackie elder brother, i believe he was THE eldest brother at that time. he wasnt 'husky' until he broke his leg when he was young. then he put on some extra weight. he found when he would get in street fights the extra weight helped him hit harder so he ended up keeping it for the rest of his life. thats why hes one of the few big guys who can do backflips and acrobatic stuff. cuz he learned it before he got big.

    another thing about their master, whilst they were trained in opera fashion, actual martial artists were brought in to teach the essences of their styles as well. i think thats one of the reasons jackie has always been so good at busting out different styles for his films.
    For whoso comes amongst many shall one day find that no one man is by so far the mightiest of all.
