    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    lian shi kung fu

    I got a book a few months ago called "The Dragon's touch" by Hei Long

    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...glance&s=books


    Anyways, I havent read it yet but I read the forward and the guy talks about mcdojo's but when I started thumbing through the pictures, the fighters were all wearing ninja costumes. He claims to practice lian shi kung fu. Does anybody know about this? For some reason I had it in my mind that it had something to do with KFSS, but I am probably wrong. I'm gonna pick it up and read now that it's piqued my interest. It sounds like the book is crap reading the reviews on amazon but the pictures looked pretty good, anatomical diagrams and whatnot. Have any of you heard of this?

    BTW it was given to me, I didn't buy it. Along with a tai chi book that I haven't cracked yet either.

    His name doesn't really sound familiar to me, I don't think he's KFSS

    I heared somewhere that he's the same person as Ashida Kim. Haven't confirmed that though.

    Kim's got other identities such as Haha Lung and Chris Hunter, which is his original name.

    I have a few books by Hei Long. Most of his stuff is pretty good. Practical, without going overboard. But a lot of it is geared towards beginners. I would say Dragon's Touch is probably his best.

    I hear "Drunkards breath" can be pretty effective.

    I'm starting to think that it's fabricated. I haven't been able to find any information on this art on the web at all. Hmmmmm...... I wonder if it really is Ashida Kim in those ninja costumes?

    The information in the book seems OK, but I wouldn't call it mind-blowing. I'm sure it can be gleaned from many other styles. I'm starting to think that it's bullshido. If this Lian Shi Kung Fu is in fact bullshido, I shall start my own personal jihad on the publishing company.
