Thread: 72 arts

  1. #11
    Well, let me rephrase that, because my post did not come out as planned.

    I've never heard of anyone mention the phrase "72 arts". However, some of those "arts" are taught at Shaolin, albeit buried within the Ji Ben Gong and other things such as some forms. It's not like they have a class on the "seventy two arts". Some of these things mentioned here are just part of the basic maneuvers. And also, of interest, you see some of these terms in other martial arts: ie, the "iron broom sweep" found in Kenpo, "iron palm" and "Iron arm" found in Seidokan, etc.

    Decheng might get here in a few weeks; he's in Massachussetts now (he called me when he arrived to the US, thought I was in Thailand). I'm sure when I ask him, he'll give me that blank look that he sometimes does when asked about these western applied terms for Chinese things, and then proceed to demonstrate all of those above skills when we review stuff...
