少北拳 ShaoBei Quan.

October 23, 2009

Another looong day out there talking to folks for the book, this time I was having a session with the Chief Coach of the Sarawak Wushu Association James Ting and GM Sheng Fong Fa, a veteran in the traditional CKF scene in Sarawak.

Both these gentlemen are prime movers and much credit must go them to them for making Sarawak into a powerhouse of Wushu in this region.

Anyway, that’s another story for another day …… soon.

I actually wanted to edit some clips for uploading to youtube to share; a style that is seldom mentioned outside of the mainland.

ShaoBeiQuan, essentially a style derived from Northern Shaolin.

Here’s an excerpt from Baike :-

少北拳是源于少林而又有所创新,且别于少林的一个优秀拳种,由张荣时先生创编整理。其理论体系科学、完整,技术内容丰富,动作结构严谨,攻防实战性强,风格简练朴实,是一种有利于群众健身自卫的拳种,广泛流传于中国北方地区。1996年被国家体委组织正式评定为我国第130号拳种。

I read somewhere that the founder GM Zhang is very highly regarded in the TCMA mainland’s scene and it is popular to say “Northern Zhang and Southern Wan”, the “Wan” refers to the late GM Wan Lai Sheng.

Anyway, I am too washed-out to do any editing now, I will do it tomorrow ……

In the meanwhile, I did manage to find one youtube clip showing GM Zhang himself in action.

So until the next entry …..enjoy.
