RDH Joins Huizhou Wushu Competition
In the late 80s, and early 90s, It was a pleasure for me, RDH, to see the Beijing Wushu Competitions. I spent several years to, from, and in Beijing those days. I met many interesting and capable brother-friends and dignitaries: Li Meng Hua, Xu Cai, Wu Bin, Cai Long Yuan, Zhang Wen Guang, et al,…I enjoyed, appreciated, and loved all their company among others.
Below is the 2013 Huizhou Martial Art Competition, which I attended. One of Chen Jian Ming Sifu’s Chu Gar Mantis students demonstrated. A Hong Kong movie star was among the presentations. RDH was featured in several newspaper articles: http://e.hznews.com/paper/djsb/20130722/A05/2/

Yang Style Chu Gar in China and Hong Kong
Yang Sou, (Yang Shou), is sometimes said to be the third generation himself, such was his accomplishment in Chu Gar Mantis. His descendents continue Chu Gar in his hometown of QingXi, Guangdong, today, as well as Hong Kong.
There is much yet to be shared with the Yang Clan Chu Gar.
Yang Wei Sifu (R), and Sigong Yang Tang Lu (L), and RDH have collaborated to publish a book of the Yang Style Chu Gar upcoming. Stay tuned for further updates.
Keep up your good Mantis! Start training today.
