Sifu Markus of Shaolin Wahnam Finland uses patterns from “Dragon Form”, while Chris from Shaolin Wahnam Scotland uses patterns form “Monkey Set”. Sifu Markus is fast, without appearing to be fast, which is of course a high level achievement in kungfu. It is worthwhile to note that many movements appear to be fast, but are actually slow. Some examples are flashy high kicks and vigorous bouncing about. Understanding this will enable you to handle flashy kicks and bouncing movements better.
