Shaw Bros Stars Performing Some Choy Li Fut Applications

Shaw Brothers Stars and Choy Lay FutDigging through my archives, i have found an interesting old magazine devoted solely the art of Choy Li Fut (Choi Lei Fat).

Late Alexander Fu Sheng and Chi Kuan-Chun – legendary duo of Shaw Brothers Studios –  on the cover and few applications inside: “Covering Hand, Tiger Claw vs. Bail  the Moon from the Bottom of the Sea” and “Double Flying Butterfly Palms”.

Fu Sheng was one of the favourite students of Lau Kar-Leung, Chi Kuan-Chun oth the other hand has mastered the Hung Ga curriculum under the guidance of Chiu Wai.

I am no CLF expert, but i have to say that the aplications shown in this particular issue by these two gentleman do not seem to me be typical CLF techniques, but well, i might be wrong. Maybe a choreography from some of their movies?

Check it out:

So or so, as a main character of The New Shaolin Boxers, Fu Sheng has definitely learned some Choy Li Fut as well. We might argue about the flavour, but well, it is a movie, and everybody loves Fu Sheng, right? See the training sequence below.

I have an old HK magazine article about the making of this film with Fu Sheng; the sifu they used as technical advisor for the CLF was a Buk Sing sifu…don’t remember his name; I have to go look for the article now…
