Traditional Chinese Martial Arts

Post by jazzmatazzie » Tue, 19 Sep 2006 3:31 am

Not sure why my previous post was taken down (can the administrator please explain?)

For anyone who's concerned, I managed to track down a teacher of Five Ancestor Fist, which is what the monks in the Southern Shaolin Temple (2 of the 3 purported ones at least) in Fujian Province currently practise. You can do a google on this pretty interesting martial art.

I was on the bus along chinatown when I saw some chinese words about "five ancestors fist" and went to see the guy. He claims that nobody teaches the art here anymore because there simply isn't any interest. He spends more time in the UK and in the Southern Shaolin temple in Quanzhou, Fujian province. However, when I expressed interest, he said he was willing to teach it for free so long as I was interested and willing to pass the art on. Something about a vow about not making money out of it.

Anyway, he is available to teach on Mondays and Thursdays almost anytime but on the condition that students are serious and won't quit shortly. Anyone keen on this? I'm asking because I think its a pity that these arts are dying out here. Am going down this Thursday, drop me a pm if you're keen.

Sound interesting. I'll google and have a look at it. Not sure how my body will hold up doing martial arts at my age. No longer flexible.

Hi Everyone,

I would like to ask how the martial art is going?

Are there regular classes now? I interested in having a look.

Thanks
