Kung Fu from A Bygone Era

Click picture to view video.

The good folks over at Silat.tv have managed to dig up some old Malaysian martial art footages and are making them available for viewing at their site. This clip shows a kung fu exhibition from the 1960s which featured kung fu stunts, including the spear-in-the-throat feat. But instead of a flexible wooden spear used in modern demonstrations, the old school master uses a thick iron bar instead. Notice the old Sifu's head is held up unlike how modern performers do it. These old school masters who learnt their art before World World II are a different class from the post-war Kung Fu generations. Check out the clip, of kung fu from a bygone era.

Awesome kung fu, the iron rod is pressed INTO the notch at base of the throat of the old master, not the sternum!
