蛇拳 Snake Fist

Leave a comment

Last night I was doing some light sparring with Michael Hubbard at the Oakdale Wing Chun Club and busted a Snake style move out of nowhere…and it worked as an effective “moving” block! I can only think that it is a memory I have from the little bit of work I did on a Shaolin Five Animals form years ago. Anyway, it got me doing a little research on Snake style and I found this video. The interesting thing is that many of the moves in this form will look familiar to my fellow students from the Wing Chun forms we learn at Oakdale Wing Chun Club. I wish I knew who the teacher is in this video, his form is very good. Check it out!
