温州五祖拳鹤法 Wenzhou 5 Ancestor Crane.

February 3, 2009

Wenzhou (simplified Chinese: 温州; traditional Chinese: 溫州; pinyin: Wēnzhōu) is a prefecture-level city in southeastern Zhejiang province of the People’s Republic of China. It has a population of 7,645,700 in 2007, with 1,423,600 residents in the urban area of the city. It also administers 2 satellite cities and 6 counties. It borders Lishui to the west, Taizhou to the north, and looks out to the East China Sea to the east.

A while back I posted a Zhejiang Southern form and said that there’s a unique flavor to the delivery – the foot stomping transition and the breathing noises.

I have been looking into Zhejiang MAs eversince the Penang gathering; I sat thru a discussion with all the invited Masters, centering around the sacking of Fukien (Fujian) Shaolin and the 5 divisions that were formed by the fleeing survivors.

One each in Canton, Zhejiang, Penang and 2 in Fukien.

As with all things, the resettled arts took on local “colors”.

Found a series of Wenzhou, Zhejiang 5 Ancestors Crane, which bears the same Zhejiang’s characteristics with the clip I posted earlier.

So anyone “researching” TCKF got to be mindful of these different flavorings… one tree but many fruits….
