View Full Version : California schools
Hello everyone first time poster in Budo seek. Brief backround... Im only in highschool 16 I love martial arts and im looking to extend even furthur into the chinese academys/schools/dojos (what ever you wish to call them). Now I have been through many many martial arts for a person of my age not because i keep flip floping my styles I like to learn as much as I can from each one and I keep training with that particular style. Now I stand at 6'2'' and 200lbs im very quick with lots of endurance. I know much close alolng with distant combat fighting. I know many weapon styles not perfected not mastered ;) give me a break im only 16... I still got a few more years before I retire. Im very interested in Kung fu I have been too two tournaments my whole life that my uncle took my too see and I would like very much to find a school in California (ware I currently reside) to begin my Kung Fu training. Now there is no way I'm going to be able to go to japan or China to train like I want to. So I have to make due hear so if anyone could explain to me a few key elements of the Kung Fu style, the difference between: Dragon, Crane, Tiger, Eagle claw and Choy li fut (comments about these, information anything you guys can tell me), and once i hear from you i will anwser which I would like to do the most and you guys might be able to recommend a good Dojo for me. Thank you very much and let the comments arise.
Im only in highschool 16 .
Yet your age shows to be 21.
Did you incorrectly fill out your user profile? :confused:
1) Where do you live in Ca?
2) CMA doesn't work very well if you intend on flip flopping as you put it between schools. There are many differences between styles of CMAs that require focus & commitment to become proficient, let alone "good". Keep that in mind...
First of all sorry for the age mistake I will fix it when i get time. I dont mena flip flopping my styles what I ment to say is I have been taking 3 types of martial arts taking 2 still but still proficent in all 3 (I train very hard for each of my MA's). I would like to find a Kung Fu perfect for me so that I may focus on it and do my best in it. By flip flopping I think what I was trying to say is that I like all 3 of my martial arts but I cant decide which one I would like to move furthur in(spend more time with) until i discovered Kung Fu and would very much like to spend the majority of my time on that style. So could you guys help me out with:
*explain to me a few key elements of the Kung Fu style, the difference between: Dragon, Crane, Tiger, Eagle claw and Choy li fut (comments about these, information anything you guys can tell me)*
I live in nor cal about 1 hour south from san fransisco in the: Cilicon valley area.
That's fine, but you still need to make up your mind on what to do . I stand by my statement...

As far as the styles you mentioned, they're all in San Fran...
Dragon -- Zhong Luo (Bak Mei, Lung Ying) -- http://www.undergroundkungfu.com
Crane -- The Leung Brothers (Bak Hok)-- http://www.sfwhitecrane.com
Tiger -- YC Wong (Hung Ga) -- http://www.tigercrane.com/
Eagle -- Lily Lau -- (Ying Jow Pai) -- http://www.lilylaueagleclaw.com/
CLF -- Dino Salvatera (Hung Sing Choy Lee Fut) -- http://www.hungsing.com
It's best if you look for yourself & ask them questions directly. Although don't try to contact Sifu Salvatera (he's my Sigung). He's in China training right now for the rest of the month & won't be home until sometime in May.
