    Monkey Kung Fu? Tai Shing Pi Gua?

    Hello Everyone! This forum has tons of info.

    I was here searching through archives, and I can't find any answers to my questions. I hope to get some help about it.

    1. Are there any schools in the U.S. teaching Tai Shing Pi Gua from Gen Dak Hoi or Chan Sau Chung?
    2. Does Chan Sau Chung have any disciples in the U.S.?
    3. Did Gen Dak Hoi teach others who would have disciples in the U.S.?
    4. Is Chan Sau Chung or any of his people teaching in Vancouver?

    Basically, where can a person find good instruction in Monkey style?

    Thanks so much,

    MetalMonkey

    Greetings and Welcome to the Forum,

    There was a forum member who went by the name Flying Monkey who was looking to teach in the NYC area. I do not know if that happened. It has been a few years since he has posted here.

    Hello Mickey! Thanks for the welcome as well as the information. I will message Flying-Monkey and hopefully hear from him. Does anyone else here know Flying-Monkey?

    Also, I will bump this thread back to the top for anyone who is in the know to see.

    Thanks,

    MM

    Welcome MetalMonkey

    There are a ton of threads on Tai Shing Pek Kwar and Chan Sau Chung on this forum, but if you are doing a general search, those terms are so general that they will overload the search function. Click 'Advanced Search' and enter your terms in 'Keyword(s)' then use the pull-down and select 'Search Titles Only'. That will narrow your search.

    FYI, here's the related cover stories:

    The only person right now doing real Chan Sau CHung material in the US is in Florida and a student of CHow Keung

    Gene,

    Hello and Thanks! I have been searching through info going back to 2001. I found a thread about Philly area training, but it was almost 10 years ago. I will continue searching. Does Master Chung have a school in Vancouver?

    lkfmdc,

    Thank you! Any chance you know how I might contact this person? Is this person Flying Monkey from this forum? Would you rather me PM you regarding this information?

    Flying Monkey,

    Come down from there a moment! I need to talk to you

    MetalMonkey:

    Your spelling of the name of the style has combined the Cantonese and Mandarin pronunciations. Perhaps this can make your search a bit easier:

    Tai Shing Pek Kwar (Cantonese)

    Da Sheng Pi Gua (Mandarin)

    Great saint is monkey king.

    Pi Gua means da pi da gua.

    Whole arms/ chest and back movements.

    It is a mix of ground tumbling, qin na and counter qin na, coupled with Pi Gua.

    More flexibility and agility of the whole body.

    It is a derivative of several styles.

    I am truly lucky to spend a lot of time and training with my teacher Chow Keung and his senior classmate Chan Koon Tai who I idolized as a kid in all the old kung fu movies... They both are 1st class open minded and some of the nicest warmest people I have met. I am truly honored they wish to me to pass on what I have learned... Hopefully soon they will both be here in Florida :-)
