as I have yet to find any evidence he's ever trained in that style. Mantis, northern CMA, bak mei, and plenty of non-CMA TMAs, but no hung ga (at least none that I've found).
If you have a source I would greatly appreciate it Chen.
I do recall him mentioning some Hung and CLF training in an interview as well.
You are ignoring his physicality and the ingrained movement he has. He could memorize all 4 pillar sets in an afternoon if he wished.
I have no doubt he's had some formal Hung Kuen training.
There are plenty of others who have played WFH (going back to the 40s/50s) who also trained in the style: Gwan Tak Hing, Gordon Liu, and Jet Li to name some of the most famous.
Jet Li - Wushu
Your point was what now?
But can Chan beat me at drinking?
Can you, for that matter?

However...I've tired of your baseless attacks on my tolerance!
I declare drinking gong sau, you and me, next time I visit Hawaii. The last time was 2001.
I will allow you to choose the alcohol, and I'll be bouncing quarters off your snoring nose before the night is over!
