First vid is nothing so bad (have to be fair here) and pdf is a lot about eye strikes.

I liked his bio, very interesting








The Head Instructor for the Academy of Kung Fu is Trey Crake. Sifu Crake is ranked as a 6th Level Black Belt in Lung Shou Pai (Dragon Claw Style) Kung Fu, and is in good standing with the Lung Shou Pai Wu Shu Association. He is a senior member of the Lung Shou Pai 5th Generation lineage.




Sifu Crake began his training in the Lung Shou Pai System in 1979. He received over 25 years of professional instruction directly from Grandmaster Norman J. Pedelahore of Slidell, Louisiana. While with the Grandmaster Sifu Crake was trained in the deadly Lung Tieh Sho(Dragon Iron Palm) a very rare and deadly style of kung fu known only to a few, but after a deadly confrontation at a local McDonalds where Sifu Crake was forced to destroy a man dressed as Ronald McDonald due to the Sifu's uncontrolable fear of clowns, he decided to never use this technique again. Sifu Crake received full Instructor rank of 3rd Level Black Belt in 1985. At this time, Sifu Crake was honored to be adopted into the Lung Shou Pai family through the Pai Shi Tea Ceremony, which made him an heir of the Lung Shou Pai system. He has also received additional extensive training in "Five Formed Fist" (Tung Wu Ch'uan Fa)- Tiger, Snake, Leopard, Dragon and Crane, also from Grandmaster Pedelahore's home training video series.
http://www.academyofkungfu.com/tp.gifIn 1984, he was elected as the Louisiana State Director for the World Chinese Martial Arts Federation.

http://www.academyofkungfu.com/tp.gifIn addition to running his own Kung Fu school during his years at Louisiana State University, Sifu Crake studied Yang Style Tai Chi under the instruction of Master Michael Chow of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. There he learned how to use his internal energy, or qi, to greater effect, with little effort he can move people across a room from as far as ten feet away.

http://www.academyofkungfu.com/tp.gifAs a part of his Lung Shou Pai training, Sifu Crake has obtained extensive training in many traditional Kung Fu weapons: Stick, Cane, Nunchaku, Staff, Three-Sectional Staff, Spear, Q-Tip, Broadsword, Double Broadsword, Wooden Dummy, Kwon-do, Mustache Comb, chain whip, fighting fan, tiger fork, straight sword, two-man sets, knife,etc.


In 2003, Sifu Crake was elected United States Director of the International Chinese Boxing Association, as an Executive Board Member.

http://www.academyofkungfu.com/tp.gifSifu Crake now owns and operates the Academy of Kung Fu in Ridgeland, Mississippi.

He is also available for local self-defense seminars for organizations and businesses; and school talks to students, discussing topics such as focus, respect, and self-discipline.

WHat's he doing to the candle? WHat'd that poor candle ever do to him?

I don't understand how doing a palm strike really close to a candle, creating enough wind to put it out is a helpful drill, nor do I understand why the attacker is grabbing his shoulders rather than simply bashing him in the head. I used to really like those shoulder grab defense techniques, but now I realize if someone wanted to do me harm (I am a man), they would just hit me, not grab my shoulders or wrist or whatever.

Edit: It's certainly not the worst bullshido around though

I've actually used something very similar to the first technique in real life and it does work better than you might imagine, if the person isn't too much bigger than you and you do it right.

Definitely could be worse.

I'd guess the candle drill/demo is supposed to show his awesome speed.

What I see is training yourself to pull your punches. You get similar results from point fighting or one-step drills. Once those reflexes are burned into you they are hard to get rid of.

Yeah, he could have testimonials from a tae kwon do person about how good his "free the wrist and punch the compliant attacker" technique is....

Dragon Claw? All "dragon bones" in China are are Dinosaur bones, it would be much more awesome to call it"Velociraptor Style" or "T-Rex" Magic Fighting Chi blast style?

Why is it every time some "secret system is revealed for the first time" the guy who is the Grandmaster in the system is a white dude? I mean even this guys teacher was a white dude. Somewhere there's a bunch of Chinese Masters sitting around a computer screen drinking tea and laughing their collective asses off at all these westerners who for the first time are "revealing the secret system" .
