    Oof. Tough question.

    I don't remember off hand. I assume you used the search function on KFM. Perhaps you can share the two you've found for starters.

    Print articles are harder to search out because if the topic does not appear in the title, our search engine only picks up what is written in the back issues table of contents.

    The tricky thing with tantui is the spelling. Our forum won't search words that are 3 characters or less, so you have to search tantui, not tan tui. You can find some thread here that way. Here's a larger one : Tan Tui- Is it a separate school of its own?

    There are more threads here if you search around. Happy hunting!

    Because it's such a prolific set, there are other spellings that aren't Mandarin pinyin. In HK Canto, it is often spelled 'tom toy'. Here's a thread related to that: BSL Lyrics: Tom Toy.

    Coincidentally, that final issue that was left unfinished - what would've been the Summer 2020 - has a nice feature on tantui. We were planning a video sidecar for our YouTube channel too. I hope that will see the light of day soon, but no promises.

    Did you try sifting through the forum here as I suggested?

    There may be more leads there.

    "Chin Woo's Springing Leg", September/October 2006
    "10 Roads of Jiao Men Tan Tui", May/June 2007

    There's also this DVD: Grandmaster Zhang Lingmei - Tan Tui


    Why are you researching this now?

    Greetings,

    I am not researching. I have those two issues. If there was another article published since 2007, I was going to purchase the magazine(s)/

    Got it.

    Like I said, I don't recall any more. But that's not to say there weren't any more. My memory on it is blurry because there were so many articles over my 20 year watch, plus there were a few years prior to my watch. Honestly, I rely on the search engines here and on KFM to track a lot of that stuff.
