    What I want to know is how did these techniques get developed? Why not just a jab. To me a jab, or a reverse punch seems so much more logical then flailing ones arms..then spinning while backing up to evade.

    within the context of what they appeared to be trying to do, i think they were doing it well. i have no idea what that IS, but they seemed consistent.

    i just wish my sparring partners would try some of that stuff...

    i particularly liked the "arms straight up and down halfassed body check" technique. ideal for those of us who have grudges against their own shoulders. and faces. and torsos.

    The jab is actually a pretty revolutionary technique according to Mark Hatmaker in "Savage Strikes". It was createdf and used by James J. Corbett against John L. Sullivan. Prior to that, the lead hand was used to simply post against the other guy while you plastered him with rear hand haymakers.

    Ugghhh...Bad. Contrary to what you see in that vid, "Kung Fu" forms are not supposed to be performed at 100 mph with no power or focus. Where this misconception came to be...I have no idea, I guess for the tourny scene.

    The 2 man drills are awful as they teach some very bad habits. :dog:

    I'm gathering there is "longfist" ala modern wushu, and there is "longfist" that is "Emperor's longfist" or "tai tzu" or "Chang Ch'uan"

    I've also had people come up to me and talk about a Vietmanese longfist.
