Here’s an exciting book, to me at least – I am a White Crane aficionado, so you’ll pardon me if I appear a little partial ……
Got this book about a year ago, in tattered conditions but the “meat” of the book still intact, luckily.
The book is entitled “Flying Crane 5 Elements SanChin” - yeah I know, quite a mouthful.
I grappled with the content and consulted White Crane mentors around here and this is what I could make out:
The front portion, apparently the “3 battles” segment is uncannily similar to the “3 Advances” that we do in Fuzhou Whooping Crane; the “Putien” line of transmission.
The 2nd portion is typical “Flying Crane” – you know “Crane standing on one leg” kinda postures.
5 elements? No clue unless I meet someone from this line and explain the elements association with techniques; every line/style assigns in individual manner. So unless the “key” is given, I could only guess.
Also, I am starting to sell some of my collection as explained here.
If you’re into this whole White Crane/Southern Kung Fu and Karate correlations, this is one book you must get your hands on.
You can purchase this in pdf format
Or click on the link I got pasted on the right that says "Kung Fu Galaxy book store" - other books available for downloading for a song....
