    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]

    Aren't those form names in the order they are intended to be learned? Didn't Lau Bun's nephew teach them in that order?

    Here's a picture of them from Inside Kung Fu 1976 Yearbook.

    Does anyone know of any YouTubes out there of those "core" forms?

    Lau Bun forms are not found in your "CHOY LEE FUT" but they are found in Fut San Hung Sing Choy Lee Fut. That pic is of Share Lew and Prof Lau Bun.

    Can you tell us what core forms that came down through Lau Bun? From reading your histories it looks like you are not that interested in forms, but like yourself, I am a couple generations removed from Lau Bun, so the only clear way to understand what branch of CLF is what, is to see and compare the forms. If you don't know of any form sources, could you perhaps be more specific about what "history info cannot be trusted" OR even what parts of it can be trusted?
