Fujian Bai He Quan (Fujian White Crane)
Fukien White Crane, Pai Ho Chuan (Fukien Bak Hok) is sometimes credited as the progenitor of the Southern Hand. Arts such as Southern Preying Mantis, Bak Mei, Southern Dragon, Southern Snake, Wing Chun, Wa Lu, etc share a striking resemblance to Fujian White Crane. Sometimes it is just called Fukien Boxing, since it can be thought of as a class of boxing.
The Fukien White Crane Christopher Casey brought back from Taiwan came
from S.Y. Chen, P.C. Hsieh, and the Hong Men Huei. Master Chen was regarded
as one of the Five Tigers of Taiwan and Master Hsieh was reportedly a bodyguard
for Chang Kai Shek. The Fukien White Crane curriculum is quite vast, consisting
of many empty hand forms, Joint Hands, specialized drills, weapons, mook
training, apparatus, ground fighting, chin na, shuai chiao, kong sao,
conditioning (e.g. iron palm, iron body), Qigong, medicine, etc.
