First, be advised that all of these VCD's are IN CHINESE ONLY. In our opinion that doesn't matter much because the instruction is clear and the quality of photography very good. But we will not accept returns just because people didn't read... IN CHINESE ONLY. Given that, these are really tremendous deals for the money. Each of these special VCD's can be played on a computer for full enjoyment. Made for PC's they are also Mac compatible by downloading Quick time (for free) and any similar VCD player program. Also playable on most DVD players. For less than $10.00? Wow!

By Shi Guo Song Shaolin chief Coach
Every branch of Shaolin has a Plum Flower Fist. This one is among the most popular of this form of Kung Fu. It is agile, fast, powerful and varied. Some specialties include a tight back spinning kick. Some nice changes and very classic Shaolin style lines and postures. Chin Nah movements are hidden in the form for those who can see them. A good intermediate level form with distinct Shaolin motions.

Shaolin Kung Fu Big Hong Fist

By Shi De Yang
This set, along with Small Hong Fist, are requirements for any beginners in the many Shaolin schools around the Temple. Extremely compact this single-line form works in a very small area. It introduces many basic moves and yet contains some unusual and tricky hand actions, particularly the "fans". Like Small Hong this one is documented with both written text and an unbroken lineage of instruction for centuries and is, therefore, considered one of the rare, unquestionably authentic forms of the style.

Shaolin Kung Fu Small Hong Fist

By Shi Yong Zhi 33rd generation
Small and Large Hong Fist make the grade as authentic Shaolin because we have them in manuscript form for one thing and there is a rare unbroken line of instruction for them. This is a strong presentation of this simple and traditional fist. What it represents and shows is the strong, very ancient looking aspect of Shaolin which has become the "official" look of Shaolin. This is somewhat unfortunate to our minds because it denies the sophistication Shaolin developed in the latter centuries. This threatens to make Shaolin a "relic" rather than a style. Nonetheless this is an good presentation of this historically key set.

Shaolin Kung Fu Rou Gong #1

VCD#502 Shaolin style Rou Gong - One
About 1 Hour, VCD pricing, Chinese/English

Quantity

This is the Tai Chi of Shaolin. Rou Quan (soft fist) sounds similar to one of the original names of Tai Chi, Rou Gong (soft work). Three Rou sections were believed to be created by the famous monk Hui Ke, the second abbot of Shaolin after Boddhidharma. It is generally taught to senior monks and its soothing and soft motions are considered excellent for older marital artists wishing to retain their skills. This first fist is derived from the old Shaolin Luo Han set and contains all of the 13 essential movement which were the building blocks of that famous form. This is an advanced form. We consider this a good form, sort of Tan Tui meets Tai Chi. Up and back walking through roads with some simple Chi Kung and others showing definite energy issuance. A soft Shaolin set that's still Shaolin.

Shaolin Kung Fu Rou Gong #2

VCD#503 Shaolin style Rou Gong - Two
About 1 Hour, VCD pricing, Chinese/English

This is the Tai Chi of Shaolin. Rou Quan (soft fist) sounds similar to one of the original names of Tai Chi, Rou Gong (soft work). Three Rou sections were believed to be created by the famous monk Hui Ke, the second abbot of Shaolin after Boddhidharma. It is generally taught to senior monks and because of its soothing and soft motion is considered excellent for older marital artists who wish to retain their skills. This Second Part is at a completely different level than part one. Definitely an advanced form though soft it takes complexity to another level. This time it's more like Tan Tui meets Tai Chi with a little Praying Mantis thrown in. A long form with many changes this is one of the more impressive soft sets associated with Shaolin for traditional movement, ingenuity and sophistication. The teacher is old with a nice big belly but his skill is evident in every move . NOTE: This VCD comes in either of two covers. We send what's in stock.

Shaolin Kung Fu Virgin Boy Exercises

VCD#505 Shaolin style Virgin Boy Exercise
About 1 Hour, VCD pricing, Chinese/English

by Shi Yong De & Xing Chao
The second film in the Shaolin Temple series is known as Shaolin Little guys, Shaolin Tong Zi Gong, also the name of this VCD. These are from exercises legendary to be taught to young boys before their cartilage ossifies into adult bone. This is the reason for the "virgin" aspect. Many of the exercises in this VCD are nothing short of astonishing. This is the kind of Kung Fu we haven't seen for a long time. The contortionist aspects will turn off many people (there's a left twist that might may your skin crawl). But this is true, accurate Kung Fu along the lines of Yogic discipline. Everything else aside, while these just look like a renegade from Cirque D'Soleil the particular choice of exercises shows the extreme sophistication of knowing Chinese medicine and which postures would, according to theory, preserved and refine the practitioner's Yung Chi (original Chi). We won't say "don't try this at home" because it doesn't matter where you try it, you won't be able to do all these exercises.

These exercises demonstrated by the same practitioner who showed in Shaolin Rou Gong #2, are simple walking forms of healthful Chi Kung. Much of the routine looks like variations on the Brush Knee and Twist Step of Tai Chi with mouth-open breathing and light steps. Definitely a do-able routine. Not difficult for any potential player.
