    Sure, if you can do all that to bones. Its a joint locking style not a joint rolling style.

    i recently looked at a Chin-Na book at B&N's, and its was a joke. i looked just to see what i have learned recently with what was in the book. some of the subs where the same but with sloppy technique, really simple things too.

    LOL at this one. Scratching, ROFL!!! Sorry, but you need to read up a bit more.

    Eagle claw for the most part is garbage. Kung fu has degenerated into money grubbing economic industry. Mr Mantis pointed out one of the very few decent eagle claw teachingings you will find. My suggestion is, like everything, do some reasearch and ask questions such as "is there a 3 year contract?" and "are there 5 year old black belts?" or "outrageous testing fees? ie: 50 bucks per belt test and 25 per stripe(4)" ect. Which happens every 2 weeks. (which is way to short to test) You just need to find a legit school, which sadly, is hard to do here in the states, and even then, kung fu sucks anyway so why bother?
    I have niether the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manor of which I provide it.

    i know most of the standard questions to ask, and if the instruction is competent i'm willing to pay a little more or deal with money hidden in testing fees, etc. what i'm really looking for is a critique on the style itself from someone knowledgeable on it who actually fights, and if there are any good schools teaching it. also, I'd like to do a lot more reading about other styles, i don't feel i know near enough.

    as to kung fu sucking, kung fu doesn't suck. these yoccos who watched a few bruce lee movies and put five years into learning and then set up shop as grandmaster of such and such style suck. the true styles were refined over hundreds of years in actual life or death combat situations and the dedicated practioneer paired with proper style and good sifu can find all that for which he is searching in kung fu. haha. after all that bullsh1t has been said, the issue becomes finding said school. which i know may well be impossible. which is why my eyes are totally open and i'm willing to seriously consider any style anywhere in the world.


    but the general things being said here are that Ms. Lau's school is not bull? Does anyone have personal experience with any of this?

    If you really want to learn "Eagle Claw," you should seek out Gini Lau. She's the real deal. I do not have personal experience with her, or any of her siblings. However, anybody who knows anything about Eagle Claw knows that Lau Fat Meng was a bad ************. Since he's dead, you're best resource is one of the kids, I suggest Gini.

    Reread the wisdom of t3h MANTIS:

    btw, welcome to Bullshido. :)
