[ mood | surprised ]

Hey all, just wanted to say hi :D

I stumbled across this community and had no idea that there was one for Choy Lay fut. I am pleasantly surprised!! I've just started the path of learning Kung fu and each day I feel stronger and sure of myself. My teachers are really awesome and supportive. Im a newbie, yellow sash but that comes with time and practice the experience naturally.

Either way, glad to of found this community!

signature strikes? [28 Mar 2005|02:12pm]
In the Siu Sip Jiu (small cross pattern) form, there is a combination strike that goes like this: double two finger chum-kiu -> double two finger san-kiu -> double upper crossed gum-jin, whose significance is that the practitioner is in a particular choy li fut lineage. Are there others in some of the more advanced forms?

I also noticed a possible application for sparring in the Dai Hung Kuen form, where you do a yum-tsop and step back into a left tau-ma, and then step forward into a horse stance into another yum-tsop in order to advance again. Is this inherently faster than shuffle back and then forward? Is there any other way to apply a yum-tsop to block and strike with the same arm withouto cross-stepping? I'll have to play with this some.

Introduction [24 Mar 2005|12:34pm]

Hello there!
I didn't even know a choy lay fut community had popped up on LJ! Amazing...Anyways, CLF isn't my main style of kung fu, but I am very interested in it and would like to learn more about it.
My main style is wing chun, but we learn one form of CLF (sup jee kal dar) to teach us the principles of circular movements. I haven't been able to find a dedicated choy lay fut school where I live (Melbourne, Aus) apart from one which I didn't like for various reasons.

Anways, that's me.

First Post! [05 Jan 2005|12:14pm]

This marks the start of the Choy Lay Fut Community, a community devoted specifically to the Choy Lay Fut style of Kung Fu. I would really enjoy it if some people that had a substantial amount of experience in the art would join and bring whatever they can offer to this community. So come one, come all...
