    Bak Mei (White Eyebrow)

    Can anyone tell me about this style? Does anyone study or have studied it? I have heard it is similar to Wing Chun?

    You should probabbly address this to the forum member by the name of Bak Mei. He will likely be of some help.

    Actually I have only studied it briefly, not in too much depth. But it is not like Wing Chun. Probably closest to S. Mantis, with a bit of HSing-I forwardness to it in application.

    I know there is one Sifu in Chinatown, NYC, and I believe reading of a few in Canada here.

    Sorry, this is an old screen name from days when I was doing reseach on the man. A knew name is in the making, just haven't put much thought to it.

    Sorry, have a good one.

    I've just started studying bak mei/lung ying about a month ago.
    definately my favorite over any other martial art(s) I have studied.

    I have seen a little bit of wing chun.

    I've heard that it is similiar to wing chun as well. I think some techniques are similiar. The vertical punch, tan sao and a few other things are I think the same.

    Bak Mei seems to make pretty heavy use of the phoenix eye and ginger fist (the technique not the dude on this forum) also. which would be different than wing chun.

    Ginger fist

    I dont think we use this in Wing Chun, it is not a familiar term anyway but may be included somewhere in the advanced applications.......

    It is considering you, or you are considering the school???? And Ma Bu is chinese for horse-riding stance. There are some different variations as to foot placement, level of thighs, etc.

    The school is considering me. THe school's sifu is Dr. Wong. His website is www.dryqwong.com He teaches traditional Kung Fu as well as Tai Chi and accupressure. It sounds like a great all-around school. I am just unfamiliar with Bak Mei. Cool thing is, it is in Chattanooga too (where I live).

    Well, studying with any great teacher is certainly a privilege for a student. However,

    Post Did you know..?

    White eyebrow/ Bak Mei were considered traders in the in the chang dynasty era. They sold out to the goverment and fought to destroy the shoalin temples and the monks, after the fall of the meng dynasty. Just thought I might add this.
    Good luck!
