Southern Shaolin Kung Fu : The Horse Stance for Southern Shaolin Kung Fu Fighting Style
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.
