Good find, Victor. I have been trying to find clips of him online for a long time.

Hi Matt, yes it is a find. I have his book but this is the first I've seen more than pictures. He definately represents a complex monkey system of study.

Now do we see the influence he had on David Lee Roth?

Master Zink of the Monkey system a very complex system with exterm required flexibility excellent example of the system. I've seen him perform since the 80s I believe, excellent complex Kung-fu system.

Did you see the starting position looks like his thighs disappeared!! Man that guy is made of rubber.

Not everyone can master it. It takes a certain body type and an inborne character trait which can handle all manner of jokes thrown at you. I've seen bananas being thrown at a performer. Why, even this thread's title is "monkeying around"

First you have to believe. A question of faith which they look to me that they have plenty of.

I don't intend their faith to be a joke, but it does tie into the Monkey theme.

That was in the film "Baraka". Everyone should check it out. It's not a "movie", per se, but a visual and auditory trip all over the earth. It's hard to describe, but there are some very evocative scenes, this one included.

There has been some smack talked about Paulie Zink. The truthfullness about his claims of training and lineage have been questioned ferociously by a Tai Sing Pek Gwar (monkey style) teacher from Hong Kong who moved to Canada.
He's certainly good at what he does, his extreme flexibility being the main claim to fame. http://pauliezink.com/
