To elaborate a bit if you imagine a flower with the centre surrounded by petals, the oponent would be the centre and I would be the petals moving either side and around the oponent attacking were he is weaker. It is a very close range style (unlike 7 star for example) with lots of seizing and limb breaks/groin strikes etc.

I have my master performing some Qi Gong and the first two main forms on video, maby I can try and get a link put up if he says its ok.

First off, I'm a student of Wing Chun, Northern Shaolin, Tai Chi and Praying Mantis.

Rico, I'm pretty interested interested in hearing more of your understanding on the different TangLang families. I'd like to suggest going to the Praying Mantis threat I started five mins or so ago (before I took the time to read this thread and find that there's somewhat of a mantis discussion going on here).

Teoul Moon Kung Fu, which consists of several styles of Kung Fu. It's mainly focused on Five Animal and Preying Mantis, with some Hung Gar techniques and footwork included. Very diverse and interesting system that I do not believe I'll ever master...just too much stuff and not enough time. Guess I'll just keep trying!

I study wing chun kuen.
I would like to get into a more internal style of kung fu, but i want to build a good basis for it first.

Go to it gives a good description of chi tao chuan gung fu

I don't mean to start a flame war but...

I reviewed the site and found it very similar to a lot of the neo-ninja sites that had popped up over the last few years, but this one has a chinese flavor.

"Blood Matches" and making it to the "Third Circle" (you have 24 hrs to complete this and may try as many times as you wish as long as you can stand and defend yourself) left me with a bad taste in my mouth.

Of couse the site states that chi tao quan is the fastest, bestest and deadliest of all gungfu styles. There are stories that can't be verified and no real concrete infomation, traceable lineages or even a technique or two to take a look at (I presume that this is because they are all too deadly to show to the general public). There's a lot of talk of 'father' to 'son' transmission and sacrificing all for the 'masters', long 'probationary' periods where you must apparently scrape and grovel just to get the oppertunity to become a student. Oy yes, and lest I forget much more scraping and groveling to be done before you are allowed to learn the secret 'internal' styles (another bad sign).

Now remember chitaochuan this is not an attack on you personally, but rather a critique of the information and content of the website that you invited us to view. Good gungfu (as well as bad) can be found all over the U.S. today with little effort and there are some very exceptional internal teachers here as well (Lou De Xiu, Ken Fish, Vince Black, Ed Hampton, Mike Sigman and on and on).

I admit I know nothing of the style of chi tao chuan, but I a bit disturbed by all of the hype of the website. Many of the same claims were made in years past(and still active in small dark places around the country) by the Chung Moo Doe crowd(cult). It would be great if you (chitaochuan) could enlighten us a bit more about the training methods and possibly a little lineage of the Green Dragon Society!

Gao Ba Gua, Hsing I, TKD, a small amount of Aikido, and a minimal amount of cross training in Muay Thai, Tibetan Crane, Hapkido, Kali, Kendo, and Silat. Ba Gua and Hsing I are really my only main ones though ^_^
