    tiger-leopard fist

    Ive been doing some checking and see that some clf and a style called hung fut have a tiger-leopard fist form in them. I was wondering if there is a style that is completely made up of tiger-leopard techniques?

    i don't believe so either.

    if there is, its probably a family method.

    it would be interesting to see a complete panther/leopard system.

    but i think a form or two would suffice.

    Yeah you don't need a "style" for every animal. Forms suffice enough.

    i mean, if you are skilled enough to further develop a certain aspect of gung fu, then go for it. nothing wrong with that.

    I agree, if you are skilled to a certain degree, you don't need to learn a whole system to gain the benefit of a single form. However, forms generally are not just thrown into any mish-mash order, the order in which forms are taught sometimes build on each other. Therefore, I suggest that if you are able, check out some of the other forms and how they are taught to get a good idea of where you need to be before engaging a particular outside form.

    Not essential - but the more knowledge you have on the background, the better. If your background experience is well developed, you should have no problems.

    Just a thought,

    Just curious..besides Hung Ga and Choy Li Fut..what other 5 animal styles are there?

    I read somewhere once that Jow Ga is 5 animal but then someone responded that technically..it's not but rather more Leopard and Tiger

    Same with Bak Mei being 5a, but then someone else countered that it's more of a tiger based art with Feng (phoenix eye fist added)

    Wing Chun as far as I can tell is more incfluenced by Snake and Crane. Never have seen a Fu, Pao or Lung hand formation in any of the WC lineages.

    Anyone?
