Show Of Power

Having posted some video clips of Kwong Sai Jook Lum Praying Mantis master Gin Foon Mark a couple of weeks ago, it seems only fair that I do the same for the system I’m involved with these days, Tang Fung Hung Ga. Here, then, is a video (forgive the odd camera angle) of our own Si-gung, master Frank Yee, demonstrating a medley of techniques, drills, and snippets of forms (the sequence opens with the beginning of our Five Animals Five Elements form). Above all, he is demonstrating the “internal power” that practitioners develop after many years of training.

Master Yee is the “real deal”; I think you’ll see what I mean.

    It was too bad that the camera was positioned where it was (would have liked to see a frontal shot at ground level), but I was very impressed with the solidity and stability of the master’s footwork.

    Yes, the angle is weird, but you can definitely get the idea.

    I’ve been very fortunate: between the training I had starting in 1976 with Gin Foon Mark’s disciple William Chung, and then the past 15 years in Master Yee’s system as a student of Master Peter Berman Yee (and with Master Yee himself), I’ve been exposed to some really top-notch instruction.
