Um, isn't that on the other thread already???




O God
You know why I am happy:
It is because I seek Your company,
not through my own (efforts).

O God,
You decided and I did not.
I found the Friend beside me
when I woke up!

Yeah... figured I'd bring it over to the forum where S.Mantis peeps were likely to be hanging out, see if any of them knew anything about it. Of course in the other thread it turns out my question could've been answered by myself if I'd been a little more observant, lol.

its a clip from an old Kwan Tak Hing movie "Huang Fei-hong xing juan hui qi lin (1956) clip. the first half is hong kong style SBG, and the second half loooks like the 18 point.

Hi all,

After placing this clip on my site some months back I did some research as I wanted to know who the southern mantis masters were in the film. It was interesting to find out that during the Wong Fei Hung serial initial run (1949-1960), fame martial artists and opera performers were often invited to record their art for posterity.

I was sent a scan which may provide further information to those that are interested.

Me too, and that's a real shame. I'm gonna ask WT since he lives in HK.



With malice toward none; with charity for all; with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in; to bind up the nation's wounds; to care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow and his orphan...to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations.
Abraham Lincoln

I've been trying to find this as well, and I think its pretty much non-excistance in the 'western' world. Someone with connecton in the audio-video world be aware! There's people interested in this, you'll prolly want to market it the same way those old Jackie Chan etc. movies are being sold ;) (ie, CHEAP DVD packages!)

Hey, this article says Pak Mei is the originator of S.Mantis. Why not red brow?

Maybe Redbrow was a sect that split from whitebrow or a faction of the same art under Bak Mei? I was told that those arts all come from Bak Mie!

Well if Ng Mui could be responsible for Plum Flower Fist and Wing Chun, I guess Bak Mei can be responsible for 3 or 4 arts himself. I wonder how many in total he's supposedly responsible for.
