Learn the southern Kung Fu horse stance in this free how-to video clip lesson on the basics of southern Shaolin kung fu fighting.
Hi! My name is Julio Anta from Anta’s Fitness & Self Defense in Miami, Florida. My website is www.antakungfu.com. Right now, we are going to work on the basics of Southern Kung Fu. Most of your styles are very similar. What are some of the southern styles? Wing Chun, Bruce Lee made it famous. The strongest martial arts ever developed, Hung Gar Kung Fu, Southern Shaolin, and lots other styles are southern. The basic of most martial arts but especially Southern Kung Fu, is a low horse stance. A horse stance looks like this. Knees are out, butt is not in, butt is not out, butt is neutral, low, feet are straight not out. This would be a training stance to become a black sash and later I became a master in this system. I had to do an hour like this. It’s very painful but it builds strong powerful ligaments. Again, knees are out, a strong stance is your foundation. How do you find a perfect stance? Very simple you can go 1, 2, 3 and squat down. Remember never push your butt forward nerve push it back. Don’t hunch over your back, stay straight. That is the Southern Kung Fu horse stance.
