    Default Northern Shou Shu?

    Greetings,
    I was wondering if any of the folks here had any experience or know anything about an art called Northern Shou Shu? It was developed by an American named Al Moore. I have done the usual Google searches and seen the YouTube videos but I was also looking for other viewpoints. Although most of the websites present the art as being "Chinese", I sense the bulk of the material may have come from the Tracy System (which is why I am asking about it here on Kenpo Talk). I am also quite sure little if any of it is from Chinese/Hong Kong/Taiwanese sources.

    The reason I am asking is that a teacher of Shou Shu has started classes here in San Diego and I am going to go have a look next week but prior to doing that I wanted to see what background information I could get.

    thanks much,
    Brian

    Al Moore was one of Richard Lee's first Black Belts. At some point, he decided to go his own way and start his own system (Shou Sou), loosely based on Bok Fu Kenpo. You can find the history of Bok Fu in Grand Master Lee's words here:

    There's a lot of questions that have come up over the years regarding Shou Sou. You'll have to make your own determination based on comparisons with other schools.
    Be careful what you say, some may take it the wrong way.

    if you are in San Diego, why not just go train with David Arnold? Is Carlsbad that far from you? That's what I would do, if I lived in San Diego.
