SHAOLIN PAKUA SET — OLD PICTURE SERIES

Siu Lam Pat Kua Khuen

shaolin

Sifu Goh Kok Hin, a senior disciple of Grandmaster Wong, performing a pattern called “Yellow Bird Plays with Water” from the Shaolin Pakua Set



This Shaolin Pa Kua Set is from Shaolin Kungfu, and not from Pa Kua Kungfu or Baguazhang, though many salient principles may be similar. This was an important classical kungfu set taught by Grandmaster Ho Fatt Nam that Grandmaster Wong cherishes highly.

The set is demonstrated here by Sifu Goh Kok Hin, Grandmaster Wong's senior disciple in Malaysia, from a video made more than 20 years ago. Many techniques used in Shaolin Wahnam today are taken from this classical kungfu set.
