Ahhhh Now I have better focus for my research on the subject as a begginner in the system I was very unfamiliar with silat, kuntao, or southeast asian fighting styles.

Well I guess so... lol thanx... whipping is something I practice quite often. One way I learned from my sifu was to hang newspaper and whip it until your able to rip it then double up the paper, so on and so forth to gain speed and velocity which probably means the same thing Thanx and Laters

Nick Gracenin?

I remember when I saw him at my first tournament when I was 15 he did this awesome drunken boxing form, then I fell in love with kung fu forever after that. I just thought this was funny, nothing too relevant to the topic.

Sorry

Really... I just asked this question under another topic, but one thing that I learned to get the speed up on my hands was ripping hanging newspaper from the ceiling. Then doubling the paper up, trippling.

Is this related to Guy Savelli's mysterious "whip" technique? I've heard about this from several of his students.

Is this harimau system the same as the low tiger system. Sifu Mckissick was demonstrating some low tiger techniques and I wanted to know if this is the same thing.

Sounds similar from the descriptions above.

Credibility?

I had a question on the credibility of Guy Savelli? (sp?) I've heard many things about him, but not sure of his standings or truth behind his huc chung kun tao lineage from reeders.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

I could record the corcorners from the yang tai chi form. The differences are subtle, but if you recognize it, it could lead to a little more insight.

Four Corners?

I was introduced to an old form direction movement called for corners when first practiced can cause disorientation. Yet I finally undertood the principle of the footwork, but I started taking Tai Chi in college (Yang Long Form) and these exact movements are in the form also. The form hits direction...
