Northern 7* praying mantis also.

I tried out several different arts in the area, but I liked this style, and especially this group of people, much more than anywhere else.

Darksoul, who are you studying under?

I started San Soo last summer - I really dig it.

I practiced Aikido (3 years) and kickboxing (1 year) perviously.

Sorry I wasn't clear I study Yang and Chen Tai Chi and I also study 7 Star Praying Mantis Kung Fu. I dont study Taiji Tanglang.

I study these under Brandon Jones of the U.S. Kung Fu Exchange.

Seems we have a lot of Tai Chi People here. Not thats a bad thing :uhyeah:
I'm still trying to come to grips with the fact that TCC is an MA! But we had a seminar last weekend and saw some videos of some masters, and watching those guys is impressive. One old dude was pushing a huge younger guy clear across the room with hardly any visible effort. Another guy was so rooted that 5 guys couldn't push him over! Maybe I'll be that good when I'm 90?

Cool, glad you're seeing that it is a martial art.
Here's a tip:
Pushing somone across the room is only scratching the surface of the martial potential in Tai Chi Chuan

Just found this forum and thought I'd pipe in since there seem to be quite a few other Texas folks here.


I currently study/train in Chang Quan and Pigua Quan with a pinch of Baji thrown in just for fun :wink2: .

J_M, Welcome to MartialTalk.Com!!! You'll find lots of information about various topics in all the forums, including, oddly enough, the martial arts;-) We have a good group here in the Chinese Arts section from various places. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.

Thanks for the welcomes. Seems to be a few Kung Fu Exchange people around here. I've met Raymond Fogg a couple of times when he visited my teacher/school. Very nice gentleman. I hear his kung fu is good to! :ultracool I think I also stopped in an affiliated school out in Tyler, TX a few years back and briefly talked with the instuctor there... Brandon Jones maybe? (oh, my poor memory!) Really nice guy too.


Looking forward to what goes on here...

Yes, there are a few KFE people lingering around here. Who is your teacher, may I ask? I train with Brandon Jones here in Tyler. Nice to have you here, I would be interested in hearing your martial arts background if your up for telling it.

Thank you for the howdy-do's. I'm happy to be here. I feel I must state that I will not begin training for several more weeks (Post-Christmas), though I have started conditioning in order to better commit to grasping the training rather than simply enduring the training. I would love to hear from other Hung Gar practitioners. Being something of a clod, I would appreciate any and all insights ;)

Thank you

There are a few Hung gar practitioners on here with some really great understanding and knowledge. I think you will enjoy discussing with them.
