Cool Kung Fu videos

Check these kung-fu videos here. Especially the “Kung Fu vs Yoga” and the “Kung Fu Monkey”. The Shaolin Kung Fu Monks is cool too. I hope that I will be able to see them live once in my lifetime. They are apparently touring the world sometimes.

Kung fu is a generic term. The Shaolin monks mainly do Wuxu (aka “wushu”, pron. woo-shoo) these days. But there are tonnes of Kungfu styles. Hung Gar (which is 5 animal style), Shaolin, Crane, Monkey, Tiger, Mantis, Tai chi, Wing Chun/Wing Tsun, Drunken… those are just off the top of my head.

The Chinese call it Wuxu these days, and it they were trying to get it to be an olimpic sport. Not sure if that happened though.

Yeah, they tour the world and if you’ve got a chance to see them live and can afford it then do it!

I saw them when they were in my town (how convenient) and it was awesome. If you practice Kung Fu yourself you can see differences in their levels of skill but suffice to say they are all very good. Very fast, very flexible.

I just hope that the religious and meditative aspects don’t get lost for better show value.
Their skills with the “Kettenpeitsche” (the very long chain weapon which made the farting noise – don’t know what it’s called in English ;) are also very good.
Twice as impressive even, if you know how fscking dangerous and hard to handle the damn thing is…

My brother did about 2 years of ITF TaeKwonDo, but I only did about 1 month of it… I still remember some moves. :)
