    I want to ask if Shoubo is the oldest style of Kung Fu. Thank you for your time.

    As far as I can tell, some French dudes are selling Shoubo as an ancient Pankration-esque predecessor to Shuai Jiao that they've somehow rediscovered or made popular again.

    Well I'm pretty sure that certifies that Shou Bo is NOT the oldest style ever, since that guy founded it and he was born in 1940.

    I would like to see the characters for Shou Bo if possible though.
