    This is not a new version of Beng Bu, although the name of the video (and some techniques ) may suggest so. The performer is called Esko, and this was the second shot (thus #2).

    This was shot in Tampere, Finland, in June 2005. At the time, Esko had been learning Tang Lang for 4 months. Beng Bu we all learned from our Shifu, Slawomir Milczarek, in May 2005. So, with 4 months of Tang Lang and 1 month of Beng Bu, this is Esko's attempt.

    He himself recognizes a lot of the mistakes he makes and has improved since.

    Nice spot, that. A couple of Kung Fu groups practice there in the summer.

    Cheers,

    Pong Lai Mantis

    Since there is interest in Pong Lai Mantis but not a lot of video other than Kevin's offerings I thought I would share a piece of my collection. I'm posting links to 2 videos of Pong Lai Mantis.

    The first is Sifu John Scolaro (green shirt) and Sifu Steve Ottaviano (white shirt) performing Sup Baat Sow 2-man at Nick Scrima's tournament in 2001.

    Steve is hard pressed to keep up the Sifu Scolaro but does his best to hang in there. I believe he just learned it before this performance. Good job.

    The other is Master Shr Zhengzhong, also from the 2001 tourney, and it's a mix of 1st Zhai Yao and something else. Kevin told me at one time but I forgot. He should be online again next week and maybe refresh my memory.

    Thanks yu shan for the approval process. Don't try to figure out the PM's you received.

    Wah Lum performance

    Since I'm posting vids of others I fugured I would put up one of my own sad a$$ performances so I can't be accused of not contributing.

    This is a Chinese New Year show at a small restaurant. Don't remember the year.

    This set is my own creation based on a few of the curriculum forms.

    How do you teach a sheep to fight like a wolf?

    In martial arts, often the natural fighters learn to fight, while the others struggle. So how do you teach a sheep to fight like a wolf?

    This next link is a small demo of how we can teach the "ungifted" to fight.

    PS
    I sincerely apologize for overposting. I'll be sure to show more, and type less.

    The method is progressive and it is important that there is a definable result.

    People need to know they are resilient and can be hit and take it, absorb it, deflect it, dissolve it, etc etc etc.

    My first thing is to conciously choose to not back away from someone throwing strike. Move into them, kill their power and then launch your own offensive attacks while in their space and deadening their power. this is elbow range and is a very uncomfortable place to be at times.

    Teach them to look at the whole body of the opponenet not to look in their yes too much and to keep concious of the telltale signs of a tactic coming. (shoulders and hips move) show them how to see this by demonstrating.

    now the style i use to actively engage is to close the gap, get inside and make my damage there. No long fist, not much medium range poking about, but rather to stalk and invade the space.

    this of course comes after the basics of destructions, deflections, neutralizations and dissolvments of opposing tactics.

    conditioning is hugely important. an unconditioned person will collapse from conflict relatively quickly and with not a lot of effort on the attackers part.

    the whole concept of "finish it in 30 seconds" is a critical error. Yes some fights last that long, but if you train for thirty seconds and you actively engage and don't pay attention to hard core conditioning, then you are in for a very rude awakening when you face the guy who can take your punches as easily as he'd take a swig of water.

    Once a person is confident with teh basics of this method, the fear will melt away...but not cmopletely because no fear = stupid and stupid=broken. Be wary and be aware. Bang that into your students heads. Killing power is likely more effective than spending energy evading it. evasion tactic is ok to get into a gate, but to creat more distance in order to protect yourself is not effective. You are faced with a fight, face it, running away will only protract the fight and again, if you are not conditioned, you will lose from spending all your energy trying to stay out of reach.

    Once a person is conditioning, practicing basics and understands the concept and reality of dissolving and destroying someone elses forces, they will naturally begin to exploit techniques in that framework.
    Kung Fu is good for you.
