Choy Lai Fut swordDemonstrator/Teacher: Chen Yong Fa.This Australian based teacher is an inheritor of the complete style. Much of the instruction is in ENGLISH (though heavily accented) and Cantonese. The energy and dedication of the Australian students fills the air with the smell of enthusiasm. A great, uplifting series for the Kung Fu lover.

Demonstrator/Teacher: Li Siu Hung. This Hong Kong born instructor is the brother of the famous Lee Koon Hung. He has been in CLF for all of his life. A noted fighter, he has won many full contact tournament. Joe Keit, a champion tournament player and demonstrator, adds his own dynamic brand of movement to the mix. Between the two of them you have a dedicated pair of martial artists who bring tradition forward while honoring their system.

Demonstrator/Teacher: Doc Fai Wong. Doc Fai Wong was a student of the famous CLF practitioner Lau Bun, one time chief instructor of the Hop Sing Tong in San Francisco. James Lee, in his Iron Palm book, refers to “only two Kung Fu practitioners, one young and one old”, we were the real thing. The young one was Bruce Lee, the old one, Lau Bun.

What can you say? We have long been admirers of this style, one of the great Southern Fists. CLF has 100+ sets and is composed of the union of three major systems along with the LuoHan Chi Kung.

Choy Lai Fut Dragon SpearBack in Stock ! DVD#29943  The Dragon Spear

CLF's grace lies in its power and vice versa. This is actually a rarely seen weapon of that famous Southern style and its use perfectly matches the tempo and flavor of the style. This DVD is a step up since menus and other features have been added for the viewer's ease. A medium sized set the usage of the spear is, to our eyes, definitely a short spear variety with many butt strikes, short twirls, quick combinations and more. Applications are given as well as basics. Good background information on Sifu Li Siu Hung, Joe Keit and the inspirational presence of the late Lee Koon Hung. A demonstration section at the back shows us some nice footage including a sweet double sabers against spear.

Choy Lai Fut Plum Flower Fist

Back in Stock ! DVD#29944  Plum Flower Form

The Plum Flower form is a foundational CLF set. It should be practiced slowly and with precision. It has all the elements that will be brought together throughout the style: the side whip punches, the kick hands, the chop choys, the stance changes. For a relatively short form it is highly representational of the CLF style. A particularly good form for grasping the basics of the CLF approach.

NTSC: About 25 minutes.

Choy Lai Fut Kung Fu Basics

DVD#10302  CLF Fundamentals

A long and interesting set of warm up, stretches initially with metal staves covering a lot of excellent movements in the CLF manner to unify the arms and waist. Then, drawing on what Chen ShihFu obviously considers one of his treasure, many Hei Kung movements from the LuoHan type exercises emphasizing a softness rarely associated with CLF but perfectly logical to the style. All this is done in seminar fashion with many of Chen's 4000 plus students. A short section of a rarely seen Butterfly Knives vs. Metal Staff. Then a rendition with instruction on CLF's own version of Tai Chi fist. A vigorous series of DVDs with, we might add, Australian students showing the type of heart and effort that will bring them to a fine standing in the Kung Fu community.

DVD#10303  Penetrating Dragon 18 Manners

Choy Lai Fut Kung Fu Qigong Ball

DVD#10306 Wu Yun 6 Chi BaGua Ball

A very unusual and interesting Chi Kung. To our eyes this one harkens back to the kind of Kung Fu we rarely see any more, village and "beneficent society" rather than urban or military. A big ball is placed in the middle of the room and the set is done "to" the ball using the spherical shape as a model for movements. Certainly more Hei Kung than fighting but with CLF's lucid and strong flavor nonetheless. This is actually an important DVD for those who can see.

Choy Lai Fut Kung Fu Saber and Sword

DVD#10307 Yin Yang Saber & Sword

A combination set with a left-handed straight sword and a right saber (appropriate to Yin and Yang hands). This is done seminar style with Chen ShihFu teaching as he goes in English and Chinese. An actually nice set with CLF flavor and correct movements for the two weapons unlike so many hybrid sets. No demonstration of the whole set but rather like attending his class and learning along with him. But logical breakdowns and clear demonstration of sections .

Choy Lai Fut Kung Fu 18 LuoHan

DVD#10365 Unicorn Hand & 18 Louhan Exercises

A workshop type demonstration of the 18 LuoHan Chi Kung also with the aid of a large ball for "focusing" the energy. The later half of the VCD is a demonstration of the CLF equivalent of Push Hands combined with Chin Na. This series of movements we suspect to be the introductory or volleying of what could develop into a pretty free form style of tactile Chin Na practice. This demonstration is a breakdown, also workshop style, of the somewhat complicated but very interesting two person practice. As in this series much of the instruction is in ENGLISH if, sometimes, a bit hard to understand.
