Perhaps you could point me to the specific interviews with Shiu where he says this. I read what Hawkins said, but I'm still skeptical that info. is accurate. If Bruce did learn those forms in the late 50's then it was because Shiu was friends with Bruce's father, Lee Hoi Chuen. Being a traditionalist, Shiu wouldn't have just started teaching Bruce Lee without a letter of introduction from Yip Man. Masters of different styles usually didn't just teach students of other masters. This was why, as far as I knew, Bruce learned all the other stuff he knew from his friends growing up. The Lacey brothers taught him some Buk Sing Choy Lay Fut in this way.
