Shaolin Gong Fu, Shinobi (Amazon reviewer) August, 2010
This DVD is authentic Shaolin Gong Fu. I can attest to that. With the dearth of authentic Shaolin and Ba Gua Zhang DVDs on the market this DVD is a necessity. The teacher is a superior martial artist as evidenced by his other DVD clips on YouTube. This DVD is a must have for a martial artist.A Valuable White Crane Reference, B. Organ (Amazon reviewer) January, 2005
The White Crane is a southern Chinese kung fu style, and Dr. Yang's presentation sets the standard. As the Long Fist style forms a backbone for many northern Chinese arts, so the White Crane style is a parent art from which many southern styles developed (including Wing Chun, Japanese and Okinawan Karate, and famous family styles like Hung Gar, Choy Li Fut, etc.), so it is worth studying.
Included are sections on basic training (drills that break down the standard stances and techniques into simple easy to understand movements) and application drills (chi sao or sensing drills). The large number of practical applications derived from these basics is simply amazing.
