    Thanks for the answer. I'm still fuzzy on this whole Reputation thing, but you get some.

    Which explains the white eyebrow/dragon mix I've come across. :5dragon:

    Ah ... that would be in the H'ung Ga oral history (myth).

    Good ... and what more can you extract from this association with regard to how the hand plays?

    Wong Long and Bak Mei could have been contemporaries.

    Good once again ... Congrats!

    I prefer "... always encoded by way of poetic form."

    Hmmm. I could only guess. I've learned some red dragon, but that's my only exposure to the fire element. The hand techniques are all fast, sometimes big, sometimes small.

    Ditto ... I think it translates loosely as credibility ... but I could be wrong.

    ... but you get some.
    Thanks ... any idea what I'm suppose to "do" with it?

    Every version of the history I have read has stated that Bak Mei lived into old age...
    A lot of different views out there.

    Dude, don't do that ... think.

    The Element approach plays in both the tactical and the technical realms.

    I'll point you in the right direction ... let's see how far you go with it:

    Fire consumes what?

    This "what" comes from what?

    What are the supporting features of the "what"?

    That tells you something about our structure and it's readily seen in our Sets.

    My guess would be fire consumes wood. Wood comes from earth. The supporting features of which are root, presumambly your structures are rooted and that's shown in your sets. I could be way off though ;-)

    Sure ... most of "those" stories can be traced back to Cheung Lai Chun's peeps.

    Interesting ... to me ... that Luo Rong Qiang's Father was a Hung Gar Sifu. Entirely different take on things ... either way ... lot's of common ground.

    I long ago laid to rest the HG vs. BM disputes of old. I think many of us that threw down in the streets of NYC Chinatown during the mid-1970s to late 1980s have come to the same conclusion. Namely, it's just a story and hardly reason for all the blood shed and bad feelings.
