    Hello, I was wondering if there still is a toad style in the world? I know there was a toad style long ago in china.

    I have never heard of it as a legitimate CMA style new or old.

    How do you know there was a toad style long ago in china? What is your source?

    And please tell me you didn't get this from the Five Deadly Venoms, if so it’s a movie.

    All I can say is I have never heard of it in TCMA.

    I did read somewhere about a there being possible contemporary Wushu form called toad form but even there I am not sure.

    I just returned to Chen after a very long break due to lack of a sifu.

    Chen Laojia Yilu then many years of traditional Yang style and then back to Chen

    I do remember seeing a youtube video on toad style cma, but I am not sure whether it was serious or meant in jest. It looked a little silly to me, but I'm not the target audience.

    More BS. What are you, 12 years old?

    Why don't you stop getting your info from stupid video games and movies and get your butt on the training floor?

    I remember reading about a toad style and a bat style in this novel: "The Wandering Taoist" by Deng Ming-Dao. Is it based on real knowledge? I have no idea.

    Please stick to discussing the topic and refrain from personal insults. Personal insults violate board posting rules.

    I've never heard of toad style kung fu. I think alot of things like that are meant as jokes off the other animal styles. "Is toad style still in existence?" I'm thinkin was it ever in existence.
