Hello everyone, I saw some posts on here that was related
to the art of Kung Fu San Soo. I practice San Soo, and live in southern Oregon. I belive there were some people that have a San Soo club in Southern Oregon, or are just working out. If this is the case, please contact me ASAP. I teach, as well as fight and workout. I am interested in starting a club down here, and working out...and learning on a consitant basies. Please contact if your are interested.
Thanks

well honestly if you're talking about the modern San Shou/San Da (and I guess San Soo) then you would probably want to look more into the Muay Thai/Kickboxing forum. Because thats what the art has become.

Though honestly I believe that real San Shou is a level of attainment than an art art. Its all kungfu anyhow....

If this is san soo it's a lot like kenpo karate. Not bad but a bit sloppy, open, and unreralistic in the attacks made by the attacker but not bad.

Skywise - does this stuff usually look like it does on that video? That was way too 'Enter The Dragon' to me, complete with slow, portly guys in gis.

lol, I thought the same thing as you. I was totally thinking san shou as in what cung le used to do. and I'll agree with you that it's gotten pretty close to muay thai/kickboxing. Maybe add some throwing movement to those.

Isn't san shoo just supposed to be either practice or being able to use random moves of your kung fu system in combat applications?

And that vid of san soo was definitely interesting to watch. I'm all for practicing slow, combos and all that... but it was definitely one of the few times when I saw the guy being attacked actually pretend to get hit. And it was interesting how some of the combos rely on the attacked person's response. (Kick in the groin, head popps forward, smack in the head, groin pops forward, kick again... )

yea these guys were a little slopy. However Kung fu san soo is a very effective street fighing system. It was based on war...and the workouts and drills have been proven.
thanks
