    I firmly believe that YES, all southern arts share a "common ancestor".
    That this commonality has "evolved" in different ways over the many generations makes a lot of sense based on what we see even nowadays in MA.
    Psalms 144:1
    Praise be my Lord my Rock,
    He trains my hands for war, my fingers for battle !

    When you state in your above "article", Fu Sheng was one of Lau Kar Leung's favourite to-dai, but didnt study long....what do you mean.

    Fu Sheng became Lau si-fu's to-dai in 1973, and was with him almost non-stop for two years in Taiwan, none of this two or three evenings a week...allday filming and training-probably seven days a week....as Hung Gar doesnt have THAT many forms it's not hard to see how Fu Sheng could have learned the Lau family Tit Sin Kuen by 1975-as he demonstrates it in Disciples of Shaolin-Hung Kuen Siu Jai...when Fu Sheng returned to HK in 1976, he resumed training with Lau si-fu who left Taiwan in 1975.

    As for length of training, is that a factor considering there is a Hung Kuen "master" in the Czech Republic advertising two week Hung Gar courses that will then allow those participants, who pay a big fat fee???, to return home and teach under their family banner.....now that is a joke!!!

    Your statement regarding Fu Sheng's status in the Lau family is also wrong. I have met several of the Lau Gar Ban over the years....and trained with them too...Gordon Liu, Lau Kar Yung and Mark Houghton have all confirmed to me that Fu Sheng was Lau si-fu's favourite and BEST student in his eyes....why else did he stop any teaching for over 6 years when Fu Sheng died???

    Mark Houghton, my unofficial kung fu uncle also confirms the above statement regarding Fu Sheng's ranking on a kung fu movie audio commentary.

    It's about length of training....try and understand what's being said before you jump in...the poster mentions about Fu Sheng not training with Lau si-fu very long...which I dispute...and just mentioned that some Czech guy turns out teachers in a fortnight...do you understand now???

  12. looks to me that you have a bone to pick with him. Why would it be any of your business to what he does?

    Just asking why he is disrespecting the memory of someone by downplaying his training, and asking where is the proof....and you're a fine one to talk about having bones to pick with someone aren't you...

    I have heard of Gordon Liu, I think I have heard of Lau Kar Yung (Gordons brother?) but who is Mark Houghton???

    Lau Kar Yung is Lau Kar Leung's nephew. Remember Gordon is not blood family but the 'adopted' brother of Lau Kar Leung. Mark Ho (Houghton) is a student of Lau Kar Leung.

    I have always heard mixed things about how much or little the shaw brothers actors trained. I love Fu Sheng as an actor but if you watch him perform sets he doesn't appear to a someone that practiced hung gar 7 days a week. I also heard he was Lau Sifu's favorite then again I also heard Siu Ho was a favorite too. Who really knows it was a long time ago.
