    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    i'm aware of why people think it looks like a sao choy, WR, i see the resemblance in the form, but when i strike with sao choy i step forward with the opposite foot from the hand striking, ending up in a bow stance, and it looks a lot like a boxing overhand right in sparring. the chop choy variation i am talking about steps with the same side foot as the striking hand, and lands in a side facing horse stance, and looks exactly like what cung le did in that gif (striking with the lead hand.)

    that way is not a hung ga(r) application of chop choy, but a CLF version, which our sigung adopted into our lineage. the one i'm talking about isn't in the form anywhere that i have seen.

    none of this is important, and i doubt any of you but WR really care.

    There are hooks in CMA.
    You would be right. I also learned some Baji basics as well though a while back.

    Late to the thread, but I did watch the fight and my observations are as follows :
    - Cung got a little lucky
    - Cung seems to be carrying around a bit more flab in his last couple of ring appearances than he did before.
    However, he is forty now..

    It was nice to see him pull out the win, much better way to finish things ( if indeed this is his last fight) than the last outing he had.
    Does anyone know if he has plans on fighting again ?

    Thanks. I think I get what you mean. For the record I don't think it's sao choy either (based on what I've seen of those).

    That graphic is Lam Sai Wing near the end of his gung gi, not sure what Lam family calls (English translation on manual sucks) it but it seemed close.

    He says he's not retiring.

    I think Le vs. Robbie Lawler would be a fun fight.

    - Cung got a little lucky
    I don't think it's fair to call it that. Lucky would have been Franklin slipping and falling, and KOing himself on Le's knee. Franklin made a mistake(leaving his chin wide open), and Le capitalized(knocking Franklin out cold). Taking advantage of openings is part of training.

    I don't mean lucky in the sense that he somehow didn't deserve it. He did.
    It was a bit of good fortune, as well as good training, to land the shot right on the button the way he did is all I meant.
