    Missed that, thanks.
    As it is, I have only seen about half of them.

    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.
    Only anecdotally, my Sifu brought over a guy who was allegedly a teacher of Jackie's way back when. He taught Hung Gar.
    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.
    Kwan Tak Hing - White Crane
    Jet Li - Wushu
    Your point was what now?
    But can Chan beat me at drinking?

    Can you, for that matter?

    Chan?
    Probably.

    Chen?
    Definitely.

    Once again Chen you've corrected and expanded my knowledge. And for that you've earned my sincere thanks.

    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!

    Mahalo, bitch!

    Elwood P Dowd should be on there. I mean he stayed drunk but sweet however, he was hallucinating the entire movie.

    Yes it does, if you have the real stuff.
    Dog is often substituted.

    Hu Gu/Kokotsu/Hogol/Tiger Bone:
    Properties: acrid, sweet, warm

    Functions and clinical use: Disperses Wind Cold and strenthens the sinews and bones: used for paralysis, weak knees and legs, spasms, stiffness and pain in the lower back, and Cold pain in the bones.
    Expels Wind Dampness: used for stiffness and migratory pain in the joints

    Pharmacological and Clinical Research:
    Anti-inflammatory effect: various preparations of Os Tigris have anti-inflammatory effects against experimentally induced arthritis in animals. This effect appears mediated by the central nervous system and is lost in anesthetized, adrenalectomized animals. Os Tigris also reduces permeability of the capillaries
    Central nervous system effect: Os Tigris has analgesic effects on rats and it appears to have a calming effect on mice when ingested orally.

    Toxicity: in no experiments have any toxic properties been reported.
