    But there's always something I will do in a form, every time, before I spar, or before I test, and that is.....well, bow.

    Bowing is bowing. LOL....sure, you could come up with an application, but then, are you bowing? I bet most bowing applications would never work, but I'm pretty **** sure that if I do a 4-5 move bowing sequence correctly, it will always be a killer bowing sequence.

    I don't think forms need that kind of dissection. Bows are martial by their "flavor", but if most bowing applications have hidden "rip off the head, and then just walk away like nothing ever happened" type applications, I think I should seriously consider my need to find a new martial art.
    If you are interested PM me your email address and I will send you a training manual for White Crane Karate / Kung Fu level 1 which comes from a Kenpo school.

    It covers the opening/ closing of the bow, the apps and a stationary form ( San Chin Kata /San He Chien). pretty cool stuff.

    I also found one on the Hua Tuo' s Five Animal Frolics with postures very similar to ours.

    And last but not least I have a copy of Jiang Rong Chiao's Bagua Book

    If anyone else is interested let me know.

    On an added note, in Lam Sai Wing's Hung Gar manuals there are brief descriptions about the bow and how it is used for martial applications.

    Very basic nothing fancy, very effective.

    I use the basic Shaolin / Kung Fu bow ( right fist/ left palm.)

    Easy application for this is grab/chop behind/ side of someone's neck/ head( left palm) and punch them in the face (right fist).

    You can also use it to start a two handed choke defense.......

    Welcome to the fold. Thanks for clarifying. We all practice differant arts but are very loyal to our own. SD gets a lot of abuse on these boards and I am not sure why but it really doesnt matter. Looking forward to reading more of your thoughts.
