Shaolin Long Fist Kung Fu—Intermediate Sequences 2-DVD set
8 Hours of In-Depth Kung Fu Instruction
Nicholas C. Yang instructs and demonstrates four intermediate-level Shaolin Long Fist kung fu sequences and their martial applications in this two DVD set.
Yi Lu Mai Fu and Er Lu Mai Fu, the first and second Ways of Ambush, are powerful fundamental sequences that instruct clever and subtle methods of defense and attack. Both contain practical and effective escape and withdrawal techniques.
Shi Zi Tang builds on earlier sequences with the addition of several different kicks, side door attacks, and forceful techniques.
Xiao Hu Yan is a challenging and exciting sequence combining techniques from Long Fist and Northern Praying Mantis. Xiao Hu Yan emphasizes low stances, powerful kicks, leg sweeps, trapping, and striking.
Each form is divided into sections to help you learn gradually and to master every technique. These traditional sequences are an excellent way to train speed, strength, timing, sense of enemy, and are good for competition.
Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming makes a cameo appearance and discusses the history of each sequence. This 2-DVD set builds upon the skills in Shaolin Long Fist Kung Fu Basic Sequences DVD and Shaolin Kung Fu Fundamental Training DVD (YMAA).

Shaolin Long Fist Kung Fu, The Professor (Amazon reviewer) May, 2010
Nicolas C. Yang does a great job in keeping up with the quality of work as provided by his father Dr. Yang Jwing-Ming. The Shaolin Long Fist Kung Fu DVD series provides its viewers with 8 hours of basic - intermediate routines to follow (roughly about 4 - 6 months equivalent of dojo training). Moves are demonstrated from multiple perspectives so viewers are not confused on movements performed. It's quite simple to follow along, lessons are divided into multiple sections, so if a viewer is not comfortable progressing, they are able to go back and review lessons with ease. Excellent quality as expected from YMAA releases.Excellent DVD on Shaolin Long Fist Kung Fu, JRR (Amazon reviewer) October, 2009
It has been said that you can not learn kung fu from books. But with a good DVD and book, one can learn a lot!Balanced Instruction, Zenpony (Amazon reviewer) September, 2009
Dr Yang has developed a good formula and format for training DVDs. And his son is carrying on the same formula and format. This makes for a very good instructional DVD. Both the forms and the applications of the moves are clearly shown and very well explained.
The Shaolin Long Fist Kung Fu forms presented in this DVD are very energetic. They would do very well as an aerobics routine for for general health, in addition to learning kung fu.
Nicholas C. Yang gives excellent, balanced instruction in Shaolin Long Fist Kung Fu. He covers both the basic principles of rooting and centering and the martial applications of the form. I really like the way he shows the correct way of moving and also how not to do it. He clearly shows how leaning too far or sitting back too much will uproot your energy. He keeps it simple, not using more energy than necessary.
