Whilst this dvd is termed advanced Ngo Cho or Five Ancestors Kung fu it is really gives an introduction and overview of the system. For anybody wanting to know more about the tradition this is a very good choice. It gives the foundation form and one other more advanced form. Whilst not a beginners how to dvd, for anyone knowing what they are seeing they would be able to learn the basics of a foundation form. Whilst maybe a little dated in production, it is clear, concise and shows how the art is applied. For the price this dvd is highly recommended
Worship it all !
An overview of the Southern Praying Mantis art. Whilst this gives a well produced introduction to Southern Mantis it is not instructional and fails to give anything that can be worked or is not found free in online streaming. The claim that it is potentially too damaging to ones health from DVD is a matter of opinion, unfounded and disappointing. So an as introduction to the system it delivers though offers little value for money regarding learning the system.
