Info about "Choy Li Fut video"
Choy Li Fut is a combination of many styles of Chinese Kung Fu and includes the five animals – Tiger, Dragon, Crane, Leopard, Snake.
This style was created by Chan Heung in 1836. He learned martial arts from his uncle, a famous Shaolin Boxer. Chan Heung named his amalgation of Kung-Fu styles after his two teachers, Choy Fok and Li Yau-San. Fut means Buddha in Cantonese, and was added to the name of his new style as an acknowledgement of his uncle and Shaolin roots of the system.
Choy Li Fut is an effective self-defence system and contains a wide variety of techniques, including long and short range punches, kicks, sweeps and takedowns, lethal pressure point attacks, joint locks, and grappling. It also practices many of the traditional Kung Fu weapons. Although rare outside of China, Choy Li Fut remains a very popular martial arts style in mainland China today.
