    Southern Feet, Northern Hands

    I'm currently designing a new Jon Jitsu form based on Southern footwork with Northern hand techniques - would anyone like to assist? I would appreciate any hints.

    Southern Hands and Northern Feet is in reference to the Choy Lee Fut system.

    Choy Lee Fut is not Southern Feet and Northern Hands at all.

    Which is why Jon Jitsu is revolutionary.

    Choy li fut is a combination of:

    Choy Gar
    Li Gar
    Fut Gar

    yes, it uses the "southern hands / northen feet" idiom. But each style has it's own foot and hand work that has been worked in.
    Most schools that teach using this idiom have a northern style and a southern style being taught. Often times by the same teacher.

    Bak Sil Lum (Bei Shaolin) for instance is North Shaolin (literally) style. But it has a strong connection to the Southern part of China in regards to it's origins and spread.

    Anyway, carry on.
    Kung Fu is good for you.
