    Taiwan Kung Fu

    This may be a stupid question, but i'm gonna ask it anyway.

    Assuming that most styles of kung fu came from mainland China, are there records of any styles that are more "native" to Taiwan? Or village styles, perhaps?

    Also, what was the state of kung fu in Taiwan pre-Communist takeover of China?

    I'd have to dig up Smith's books, but he relates which styles were brought over by the KMT crew and which were NATIVE to Taiwan

    Taiwan has always had close ties to Fukien, so the "native styles" may be Fukien transplants or influenced

    Thanks for the reply Mr. Ross. Who exactly is the author?

    I do a lot of reading, and since martial arts is something i'm interested in, i'd like to get some good(credible) books on the history of Chinese martial arts.

    southern shaolin from fu jian shaolin.

    all kinds of crane and tiger were popular.

    tiger boxing was used to fight the french during sino franco war.

    Japan occupation period

    karate, kendo, aikido, judo etc were popular.

    practice of CMA was somewhat underground or not publicly.

    Still no links to the Taiwan blood bath? Even on a Taiwan Kung Fu thread? I know there's a Chinese version of youtube (isn't it like yukuu.com or something?), but even if I go there I won't know how to type "Taiwan Blood Bath Footage" in Chinese so I can search for the footage. Or even some articles...er, well no since they'd be in Chinese. I am disappointed....

    I was on the metro earlier, deep in meditation, when a ruffian came over and started causing trouble. He started pushing me with his bag, steadily increasing the force until it became very annoying. When I turned to him, before I could ask him to stop, he immediately started hurling abuse like a scoundrel. I performed a basic chin na - carotid artery strike combination and sent him to sleep. The rest of my journey was very peaceful, and passersby hailed me as a hero - Warrior Man
