    Default MT: sho tung kwa

    sho tung kwa

    ====================

    Considering that GM Villari has been reported as stating that this form as containing the essence of his shaolin kempo system. I thought a thread discussing it would be a great tool to understanding skk. My first question is about the three tiger strikes in the form. I was taught to do them while in a crane stance after the front ball kick....why stay in the crane to do these strikes? Was everyone taught this way?

    Respectfully,
    Marlon

    Camey, it sounds like a form in Shaolin Kenpo.

    Sorry, I'm not familiar with it and am not having any luck finding anything on it either.

    Yea.. I just completely read that thread wrong. It's a Form... not a form of something.

    Sho Tang Kwok is a form invented by Fred Villari. It has some hints of Hung Gar kung fu in it, and is, as far as anyone can tell, the only form in Shaolin Kempo that Fred actually invented. Immortal Monkey and Wounded Tigers were said to have been invented by him as well, but I've never seen either, nor met anyone who knows them, so I'll reserve judgement on that. It's an interesting form that I learned some time ago when I was still interested in the Villari lineage. fun stuff.

    Sho Tang kwok is a Lower Level Black Belt form, Given roughly at 2nd Dan/ Nidan. From what i've been told by My instructors, who are two 8th Degree's in Villari's, Is that it is a form GM created. I do have, and was taught this form, its really an awesome form, and when done with focus, can really clear the sinuses.
    Immortal Monkey I don't know alot about, and wounded Tiger is rare, Only three Masters That I know of in the villari's system still have that one. Two of the three Masters are hard to find, but not impossible.
