SaoLim Lotus Form.

March 8, 2008

Folks, a short glimpse of Ven. Sek’s SaoLim Lotus or “Lien Huay” in Fukien.

 Sorry, the owner only gave permission to present partial view of this form …..

And for good reason too; SaoLim is one of the arts that I do since way back and over the years, there has been just too many perversions of Ven. Sek’s legacy.

Don’t know much about Medan, Indonesia but in Penang and my hometown, Singapore – all sorts of forms have been put forth as “SaoLim”. 

What I do know and this is confirmed by SaoLim elders, direct disciples of Ven. Sek, is that there are only 3 “mother” empty-hand forms :- 

  1. Yi Ki Muay or 1 stalk Plum flower.
  2. Lien Huay or Lotus
  3. Lohan

There are many other forms transmitted by Ven. Sek but these are the seed forms and every SaoLim student must learn/master at least one. 

Ven. Sek is known to have passed dissimilar forms to different disciples but these 3 are more or less elemental. Simply put, if you’re Saolim, you must be able to do at least one of the 3.

With the passing of many of Ven. Sek hand picked disciples, the race is on to document and archive as many of the skill sets as possible before it mutates to something else altogether…
