  • Shaolin Wugulung

    Interesting video!

    http://vimeo.com/18911353

    Here the presentation of de documentary:

    "This documentary follows Master Wu Nanfang, the great great grandson of Wugulun, a famous monk from the Shaolin temple, as he shows some of the traditional kung fu forms, and explains the difference between this and the more acrobatic, performance oriented Shaolin wushu styles.
    In the troubled political climate of the last two centuries the Shaolin temple was destroyed and rebuilt many times, and Wugulun and his descendants continued practicing these traditional forms in an isolated mountain village in order to preserve them"

    I liked this comment very much:

    "It doesn't matter if you are walking, sitting, liying down - Zen should be everywhere. Everything is Zen. Zen is Kung Fu. Zen is wisdom"

    I hope some of you enjoy the video so as I did.

      Thank you Davy, very nice video.

      And oh surprise, I enjoyed the (probably purposely short) small chi flow of the master in the end of his set

            The video mentions a tie to Shi Dejian, which made sense, because this master's kung fu looked very similar to Shi Dejian's Xin Yi Ba (not to be confused with Xing Yi Quan). Interesting that they choose the term Wugulun Kung fu instead of Xin Yi Ba.

              Shi Dejian is the Sihing of Wu Nanfang. In another Documentary you can see both training together at the temple where Shi Dejian lives. In the case of Wu Nanfang´s school, the kung fu teaches there is called Wugulun to honour the monk of the same name, from whom Wu Nanfang is descendent. But you are right, the style showed in the video is Xin Yi Ba.

              Thanks for comment. I find all the story behind this really interesting.

                This video series "Kung Fu Quest" has been posted on the forum before, but here is an episode that features Xinyiba and Shi Dejian:


                And here is a link towards the end where they do some sparring:
