The form doesn't teach technique it's practice for technique. Learning the form without some guidance in technique will mean that you will copy what you see and not actually doing the technique that is in the form. Learning technique is valuable even if it's not in the form. It will also make future forms easier to learn regardless of what school you go to.I don't understand the "don't learn the form yet, it might not be the same as the school you learn from" attitude. So what? Then I can learn something more when I get there? Surely... I would never ever join a martial arts school or train with a master and claim to know ANYTHING let alone claim to know kung fu already. I will be training with a genuine shaolin monk who has moved to the south of my country within the year, and it is his videos I am learning from. All I really wanted to know is what are the main forms taught when people say "Shaolin Kung Fu'
