    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    Vacation boredom strikes again.

    Remember, shapes ruled my world so, kicking took a back seat until HJL appeared in the earlier mentioned movie.

    Many of you Remember Wutang Clan. They had good lyrics but, what struck a cord was their liberal use of Kung Fu movie samples. What this did was build a sudden resurgence for bootlegs in stores especially, out West. Instead of specialty stores, Target, Kmart, hell low end Mom and POP stores had movies from 3-10 dollars.

    Well, I encountered my next kicker in a Shaolin (yeah) movie. One of the funniest movies I had seen at that point. Don't get me wrong JC movies were great but, I didn't expect any comedy in this movie.

    I loved the shapes he used so his kicks were little used. Yet, when they were he showed that he might have been a HJL level kicker. He just showed up a little to late and never got that big break.


    Chang Shan:

    Shaolin vs Lama ( Genius GZA: Liquid Swords, Shadow Boxing Sample comes from this movie):
    YouTube - Shaolin vs Lama (Part 9 of 9)

    But wait he barely kicks WTH am I talking about? Well, he used the triple kick that by this time I noticed the Korean Kickers do.

    So I started searching for anything he did.

    5 fighters from Shaolin
    YouTube - Chang shan v mark long 常山

    My favoritre for kung fu and kicks.
    7 steps of Kung Fu:
    YouTube - kung fu seven steps of kung fu

    Now he is one of my favorites due to Choreography. He mixed kicks with shapes almost better than HJL and his often used Eagle Claw.

    His kicks were also thrown very similar to the HJL and CW. Maybe you guys can pick out the pattern since, I now have two people waiting for TTL and JL.

    This is the one that did for me and moved him up my list for kickers.
    Shaolin Temple Strikes Back:
    YouTube - Shaolin Temple Strikes Back (Part 12 of 12)
    Again he shows the little kicking techniques that I enjoyed but, more shapes than kicks.

    It is a term I picked up from a mixed community Kung Fu Board. A bunch of posters from the UK called animal or named styles (North Shaolin Wing Chun Tan Tui Cho Lay Fu) shapes.

    Monkey=Shape
    Mantis=Shape
    Someone like Angela Mao, John Liu, and Tan Tao Liang rarely used shapes.

    It is one of my favorites.

    "Allow me to Demonstrate the Skill of Shaolin..... The Special Technique of Shaow boxing."
    "You're a traitor to Shaolin So you can't say we're brothers."
    "Why don't you fight back..."You are my Master you strike the First Blow."


    Good stuff.

    Oh and have kids you'll revisit old ****. My oldest son loves Godzilla and kung fu Movies.

    Flag of Iron is his favorite:
    YouTube - Venoms Mob - Kuo Chue Fight Clips From Flag Of Iron

    My youngest loves Godzilla movies. They both love superhero movies and hate the new Star Wars movies.

    I am content.

    "Shape" is another way to translate "Xing" as in Xingyi or Wuxingquan.
