    Awesome indeed. I also practise Southern Kungfu especially Ng Ying Kungfu or Five Animal Kung Fu. Within that system we have also much tiger moves, forms and techniques

    sorry to be "that guy" but i disagree with rabbit about the quality of this kid's form. it's ok and not bad for a kid, but i have seen kids his age really have a good understanding of this form, and show me that they get the principles.

    this kid?

    no body connection. he makes all the moves but they don't flow well
    no "rooting." his stances aren't rooted and due to that and the lack of body connection, he's not dropping into the stances right and that leads to the next issue;
    no power generation. he's pulling all the strikes at the end and there is no power being generated by his movements.
    stylistically i would say his tempo is too consistent and there isn't enough distinction between the slower "power generating" sections, and the more explosive striking aspects.

    Almost all the points I was going to make then I thought...**** it, too much effort detail everything. Why can't you be lazy like me?
