This post is slightly unlike the rest, instead of me posting pages from books in my collection, here is a book that I’ve been searching for a while……
I did find a on-line copy in one of the mainland forums I frequent, but the scanning is bad …….
Really would like to obtain a copy of the physical book because from the little that I could make out, some of the info is important to my work.
Look at the last page, this is the technique names of a Shaolin form and if you look at the left hand column, the 9th row says “White Crane Opening Wings 3 times”.
Now this is a name that is used only in particular White Crane forms that has special meaning to my family’s Crane.
So, if you know where I could get one …… shout!

Still on our leisure stroll through the southern systems, I’ve got “5 Animals” form here for you.
As much as I want to say “Hung Gar”, I am going to keep back that comment.
And why you might ask?
To pre-empt receiving any mail telling me this is not original “Ng Yeng Kuen”.
When I posted “Lau Gar 5 Animals”, that is exactly the comment it picked up; not the genuine thing, recent composition blah blah blah….
I think the rule of thumb here is – as long as it’s different from what I do or taught by my Sifu, then it must be corrupted…….
Still, I am going to stick my neck out to say, the form is very Hung Gar – ish.
Okay now, shoot me.
ps..the pages are not arranged in sequence so you got to download and rearrange them yourself ….. see I told you to keep to 1 animal … so much simpler …. hahahaha
