Thread: Choy Lee Fut VS Pak Mei

    Choy Lee Fut VS Pak Mei

    Hi everyone,

    I was wondering if someone could help me to find a true and traditional Kung Fu school in NY? I have visited a bunch of them and i have seen so many flashy and crowed schools, where students were not corrected or handled properly. I have now narrowed down my choices to Choy Lee Fut school in Brooklyn or the Pak Mei school in NYC (Master Kwong Man Fong)

    Do you have any advices or feedback from one or the other styles/ schools?

    Thank you so much

    Given where you are, CLF would be my call if I had to select between those two.

    Hi Golden Arms,

    Thanks for your response. I used to practice Kung Fu Wutao created by HOANG Nam in 1962 and i am looking for a similar style. Do you think CLF is the best option then? Have you ever had any feedback about the Pak Mei school in NY?
    Please let me know,

    Thank you

    What CLF school you talking about? I don't recall where this guy's at, but I'd bet he's a very good teacher:

    I was just gonna ask the same thing ??
    The form is NOT sped up, you can tell by his body AND the audience.
    The mitt and bagwork is not sped up either.

    I'm pretty sure the only thing tongs do nowadays is make sure Chinese restaurants don't pay out tips to their waiters. - Pazman[/B]

    You can always tell when videos are sped up by looking at the background people and objects. That is not the case here.
