    Normski have you heard about this art , apparently who ever started this style first learned wuzuquan from Master Kim Hun and then mix it with other styles and named it chen wu kuan.

    HI SERGE TK,

    To be honest ,no I haven't..from what I gather Master Kim Han was the British Wushu Coach from the mid eighties to late nineties
    , I think ,he was one of founder members of The British Kung Fu Council
    which I think ,though I could be wrong,was the fore-runner for B.C.C.M.A.
    (British Council for Chinese Martial Arts),that as far as my knowledge goes
    on the subject.................!!!!!!!!!
    maybe someone else might be more enlightening...............

    regards Normski

    Hello everybody,

    I'm from Chen Wu Kuan, and it is a mixture of northern and southern shaolin styles. Southern being Wuzuquan.

    Nice to hear of other students around studying WuZuQuan

    Where are you lot based, and how long have you been training for?

    regards,
    Alex

    Guys,
    Late response to this (just logged back on after a long time away)
    Just to clarify Master Han was the British Wushu Coach from 1985 - 1993.
    Other fact is correct.

    Try to track down Sifu Kim Han, he was teaching Five Ancestors back in the seventies. He is, or was London based.

    Master Han is still teaching Wuzuquan in London (Harrow Wealdstone)

    Good to hear he is still around. Kim and I worked together on the old British Kung Fu Council.

    Ive practiced some ngo cho and have a fair understanding of the sanzhan/sanjin set in the system. I enjoy the footwork and spitting energy in the form but find that the crane portions of the form seem to be somewhat adverse to my more core martial arts work...

    Did you have any specific questions about the set? Seems like we have a decent amount of ngo cho membership responding to the post...

    I am curious as to how the crane techniques are adverse to the rest of your training. Care to expand on that?

    Im sure the issue will become more natural over time if I continued to work on it over the years, but my main issue is with the wrist down versus being turned up in other styles Ive worked on (such as tan sau in wing chun). It seems a minimal difference but its caused me some headache. I suppose in then end, maybe "adverse" is too strong a word, but with sooo many different methods (like tan sau, or a similar method in Northern Shaolin), and so many varying philosophies in execution (like gwak shu in Southern Mantis), I find that trying to incorporate too many ways of doing a similar type of thing is a good way to spend too much time learning too many things and not enough time learning a small number of things.

    Does that make any sense? I do like the crane blocks but I tend to not use them in favor of other philosophies that in the end have a similar goal in mind...
