Funny I have seen some southern monkey that is basically in a full crouch during fighting and forms. Then I have seen some Wing Chun styles were there is only a slight bend of the legs used basically standing fully upright. different style have a variety of ways to generate power and hit with a variety of body parts and hand shapes. all style will include punches and kicks from various angles. style may or may not include throws, locks, ground fighting, point striking. but the essence of what makes an art different is its philosophy, I am not talking wishy washy spiritualism but the mentality, stratergy and fighting spirit of the art. If you think these are all the same then I think you dont know the true essence of chinese kung fu.

Oh Seven Star. I didn't understand the Cantonese, mind you.

Yeah I've seen that stuff. Lots of bin jing, seems pretty intricate as well.

Take a look a a Bak Sillum style such as Sifu Kwong Wing Lam does. Then take a look at Hung Gar. The difference can really be seen between these two, showing the difference between northern and southern. However, there are always the exceptions.

Just my two cents worth.. Master Richard Vera, is both a Southern and Northern practitioner, he explained it to me in simple terms.. He stated that the southern systems use shorter blocks and don't extend the same as the Northern system do.

The southern styles tend to use low horse stances for training and endurance, but when used in a practical matter the horse is in a 3/4 stances, that is to say your legs are very slightly bent. The southern systems tend to use very low kicks and swipes to bring down on opponent or brake there knee caps.

As for the Northern systems they tend to extend much farther and always tend to maintain there very low horse. Now we must keep in mind that the people from the north were taller so it makes sense that when the northern systems keep a low horse they still are at normal height.

I know this is an over simplification, but I think it's right on the dot.

Interesting points

Nor all thy Tears wash out a Word of it.
