    Whoa, dog!

    MartinShanghai is a LiuHePaFa practitioner?!

    What's your lineage? I'm with Choi Wai-Lun through Chen Yik-yan...

    How unusual!
    I would liken it to the boxing or the muay thai of internal kung fu, even though that's like calling apples the oranges of the apple world. --WalkOn

    Hey Xango,

    Not Liuhe bafa, but xinyi liuhequan - AKA Henan or 10 animal Xingyi. It's quite popular in Shanghai, but not many good people left. Some articles on it at Jarek's www.chinafrominside.com

    I have heard good things about your teacher.

    Aha! Well, if I ever make it to Shanghai (and it is likely that I shall) we'll have to have a style to style discussion...we have 12 animals, for one thing. Thank you for your kind words about my teacher, he is quite something.

    I now return you to your regularly scheduled thread!

    Kalarippayatt is a martialart of southern India.Thang_Ta , Lathi etc are martialart from northeastern part of India.During the long british rule many martial arts suffered many of them were banned and with time many of these martialarts no longer existed. Few martial arts somehow survived but Karate , Kungfu and general lack of interest are threatening the existense of these few.Kalarippayatt is gaining some popularity (because at least you can find some websites on Kalarippayatt ) but the rest will either cease to exist or may reappear as a bullshido art in far far future like some kung fu.

    "Some kung fu"?
    I think most kung fu had become watered down.

    First after the fall of the ming Dynasty. Then second after the Boxer Rebellion and finally third after the Cultural Revolution in China.

    The influence of Indian arts can be seen in many Indonesian Silat styles - typically the ones influenced by Hinduism or Buddhism, but also many of the Muslim silat styles as well.
