Thread: Northern Shaolin forms online?

    Northern Shaolin forms online?

    Hi all!

    I practised Northern Shaolin (Northern Shaolin Boxing School, by Gu Ru Zhang 顾汝章) during my teenage. Now I'm practising other styles for having no Northern Shaolin center here in this city, but I'd like to remember all the forms I had learnt.

    Is there any online content for seeing the forms? Pictures will be ok to remember everything, but videos would be way better. I've been searching it online, but I found nothing good but the 1st form we learn here in Brazil, as Chen Guo Wei 陈国伟 (Northern Shaolin introducer in Brazil) created a kind of introductory first form for teaching Brazilians, as he considered the real first form was too difficult to learn for beginners.

    It feels a wee bit weird when someone where I train asks me to show some forms, but I only remember the first one. lol

    Cheers in advance for any help!

    We also have the BSL lyrics on this forum

    BSL Lyrics:Movements and names
    If you sift through the individual threads that are indexed on the post above, you might find a few more loose vids. We've dedicated a thread to each of those BSL forms.

    Ah, well, these forms are different to the ones I learned on Northern Shaolin, but most of the techniques seem to be very similar. Thanks, BlackEChan!

    Hopefully! My master's kung fu center was founded in 1972, here in my hometown, it's called Dragγo Vermelho (Red Dragon). He learned Northern Shaolin from Chan Kowk Wai (陈国伟). Chan Kowk Wai was the first person to bring Northern Shaolin to Brazil and probably to bring kung fu in general to Brazil.

    I know who Master Chan is as I know many of his long time students. I am a Northern Shaolin practitioner for a little while now. I am interested in our system not becoming mainstream strip mall fodder, time will tell
