Five Deadly Kung Fu Styles!

Here's an old snippet showing several of the styles. It's more of a teaching DVD, so I move slower and give more in depth instruction.

Five Deadly Kung Fu Styles!

I watch Kung Fu Movies, so a title like Five Incredibly Deadly Kung Fu Styles is right up my alley. When you speak of these arts, however, you aren't talking movies. You are talking about incredibly potent disciplines that are the most dangerous martial arts in the world.

These are specific body disciplines which perfect the body and sharpen the intellect. People who train in these disciplines have gone beyond the flesh, and are describing a world towards which mankind hurries with eagerness. Let's go over the five deadly Kung Fu styles.

No particular order to our consideration, let's begin with Shaolin Gung Fu. Inspired by the immortal Bodhidharma, it has become the most powerful influence in the martial arts world. In Shaolin you are talking about the absolute protection of creating an iron body through Golden Bell Training, and the steel fingers that eventually result in Dim Mak (the death touch).

Many disciplines claim lineage to the Shaolin Temple, and Wing Chun Gung Fu is one of the foremost. Sometimes considered a 'girly art' because it was founded by a woman, this art shows that being sensitive to an attack allows one to lay waste to an attacker. Learn the Sticky Hands (Chi Sau) drill and you can see what is coming before an attack is launched.

Another sensitive but deadly art is the Praying Mantis (Tang Lang Ch'uan). Again, the arms intertwine in a stylistic training routine, but the attack and defense is delivered from a stronger Shaolin stance. Shaolin Power with Wing Chun sensitivity, that is the key to the Praying Mantis Style.

Stepping outside the world of Shaolin, one comes to Tai Chi Chuan (Taiji Quan), which is an art from Wudan Mountain. This art teaches whole body sensitivity, and is considered by many to be the peak of martial arts in the world. By 'emptying' the body one can generate massive amounts of 'Chi Energy,' and this energy is far beyond simple muscle.

A more rare form of Wudan is the Pa Kua Chang (Baguazhang). This is a circular art designed to twist and turn, and totally mystify an attacker. As in Tai Chi, incredible amounts of Chi Energy are created, though by a slightly different training method called 'Walking the Circle.'

Five arts, each of which is totally deadly, has its lineage, and has been proven over the millennium. And, there are deviations and variations which are subtle and powerful in their own right. Indeed, to know even one of the Five Incredibly Deadly Kung Fu Styles is to change the way you think, and many people specialize in more than one, putting the arts together in a form of self expression far beyond the mere mortal.

      Iv'e been practiceing Kung Fu San Soo going on 34 years now, I also teach Zhuong gou Chinese Kung Fu,

      Both San Soo, Hung ga, Fong jao pai and Tai Ji chuan(classicle Yang) I can clearly state that though we Say San Soo is defensive system, it is all agresive. In fact I started practicing Tai Ji to counter my aggressive Tsoi Li Hoi ga pai. If you have any quedtions concerning Kung Fu San Soo, please feel free to E~mail me at may Our Lord God through Jesus Christ shine his grace upon you.

      I studied Shaolin animal styles for 3 years during my youth. More recently, I moved to internal styles, and have studied taijiquan, baguazhang and xingyiquan for about 8 years.
