Shaolin Long Fist Kung Fu—Basic Sequences
This multi-language DVD contains the fundamental training sequences of Northern Shaolin Kung Fu, instructed by world-renown author and teacher Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming. These sequences have been trained in the Jing Wu Association and Nanking Central Guoshu Institute since the early 1900's and can help the martial artist build a proper foundation in the Long Fist (Chang Chuan) style. This video is designed for self-instruction, allowing the beginner with no martial art experience to learn accurately.
Lian Bu Quan (Six Unifications Sequence) also known as Lien Bu Chuan, the first and most popular Shaolin Long Fist sequence, is explained and demonstrated by Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming, with over 70 martial applications.
Gong Li Quan (Power Sequence), also known as Gung Li Chuan, the second basic sequence of Shaolin Long Fist, is explained and demonstrated with over 70 martial applications.
The Tan Tui are known as "Spring Legs" due to their fast and accurate spring-like kicks, and they have a long history in China. The routines were popularly practiced by Northern Chinese martial arts society between 1736-1912. Improve your fighting skills, balance, strength, and focus with Tan Tui. These 12 routines form the basis for other, more complex forms practiced in Northern Shaolin Kung Fu.

A Valuable Long Fist Reference, B. Organ (Amazon reviewer) January, 2005
The Long Fist is a northern chinese kung fu style, and Dr. Yang's presentation sets the standard. The Long Fist forms presented (Gung Li Chuan, Tan Tui, etc.) comprise a famous set of core forms from the Nanking Central Guoshu Institute from the 1920s...In general, Long Fist styles form the backbone of many systems of gongfu in China, and so it really deserves to be studied.Clear, TO The Point, Excellent Training, Dan (Amazon reviewer) July, 2005
Included with each of the forms is basic training (drills that break down particular hard spots in the form into simple easy to understand movements) and applications. The large number of practical applications (including many Chin Na techniques) presented is simply amazing.
...This training video is excellent because Dr.Yang first explains the history and origins of kung fu, and then shows the sequences of movements at regular speed, slow speed, and also the actual combat applications of each one. You get the complete package and, unlike attending a kung fu class where you have to strain to near exhaustion due to overly hard warming exercises before getting to learning the actual movements, with this training DVD you can go at your own pace, alone or with a partner, and just go back as many time you need to see the movement again...There's no better kung fu training DVD out there, I should know, I've scoured the internet, and local martial arts stores everywhere. I will be getting the White Crane Kung Fu Training DVD also from Dr. Yang which emphasizes more hand movements with the Shaolin southern style.
