Small Luo Han Boxing
Small LuoHan Boxing is a great medium sized form with a special emphasis on the famous Long Arm Wave punch. Many tight spins and spinning back fists. Strong fast movement and solid stances. A nice Hop Gar form with characteristic moves. Xin Lin’s explanation breaks down the forty or so moves with very clear demonstrations. If you are a fan of Southern Boxing of Tibetan White Crane this form is, in our opinion, a little gem.
