Just so no one need to write and ask about the music I used in the “Hakka Li Gar” clip, here is Jay Chou and his “Fearless” MV:-

Foot stomping Nanzhiquan.

And before anybody starts to think that I am “Hakka” …..hahahaha….. My father is Fuzhou MingChiang and mother is Fuzhou Kutien …. Making me “pure” Fuzhou….hahahaha….

Annnyway, here is another style of TCMA frequently associated with Chaozhou or Teochew in China.

Even around these parts, Nanzhiquan is kept within Teochew clans and here from a “sifuwu” clip is a little info :-

The founder Chen Nanzhi [陈南枝 1847-1925] propagated the art in Chaoshan (i.e. Chaozhou and Shantou areas). Derived from Fujian martial arts.

Nanzhi folks have their distinctive “foot-stomping” footwork that sets them apart from other Southern styles.


More of that “stare you in the eyes and hitting you with life-threatening no nonsense techniques” Hakka Li Gar Kao kung fu……

The way they do their solo forms, 2 men conditioning and even the “jian” in their hands looks more menacing – forget grace and delicate movements – just go for the jugular ……. Aaaaaarrrrggghhhhhh !!!
