None of them include free sparring, but never the less they look fine, basic two man drilling. They look like they are working hard at it, which is better than what is usually broadcasted.

That sure looks like northern shaolin. You can always tell there is a northern Shaolin background due to the signature 3 flying kicks sequence.

Sometimes it's hard to tell with forms if people are just going through the motions, or if they understand what they're doing. It is even more difficult when the source is Hollywooded up. That aside, I would only have technical quams with those clips. Some of the body postures when strikes were thrown did not quite maximize the potential of power.

But overall, good clips.
