Choy Li Ho Fut Hung (Kung Fu San Soo) anyone take it?
I study San Soo i've been studying for about 8-9 months now, i was just wondering if anyone in this forum takes it and what are your opinions on it.
I am currently a Yellow Belt in San Soo, I absolutely love the art, It's straightforward techniques and smooth circular motions and efficient use of movement make this in my opinion the most effective combat art out there. My only wish is that maybe there was a little bit more formality involved to build a greater comradeship between students. I also think its missing a little bit of the traditional Kung Fu "ceremony" involved in regards to promotions and what not. But all-in-all in terms of combat, I feel that San Soo is the best out there, and in its purest form I feel it can beat any style.
hi fellow san soo practitioner
you know I am a yellow too... I feel the same way, I think this art is way better than any other. After taking several months of san soo it gave me sort of a trained eye making every other art not look so good [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]
Where do you train. I am from the monterey bay. I have trained for two years in san soo. I feel very strong about san soo. If someone talks bad about my art I am swinging for the fences. I am still young so I can still do crazy stuff like that. Unfortunately my school closeed in july and I really have no sifu anymore though me and a friend still workout in his garage.
What's the 5-Family connection here?
I know this is a "conceptual" approach to these well-tossed names... but what else?
I feel the same way as you when other people put down the art. Don't let them get to you, they don't take the art... they don't know what its like. Anyways I train in Olympia, Washington from a second generation student of Jimmy H. Woo. Ive been going for several months now. The five family system is choy = striking, li = leverages , ho = pressure points, fut = stradegy, hung = power. with all these families combined is what makes san soo.
woops i mean i learn from a second generation master not student
I'm new here so I just wanted to say howdy. I've been doing San Soo for about three years now. I love the art and I think that san soo people tend to be very proud of the art (for good reason).
