The white crane internal is taught in a seperate set of noi gung
I learnt this set through two seperate lineages and this set is different to either one I Learnt


Interesting. As noted not something I learned in my time I do find the history interesting.
My point in this thread was to show that:

1. All CMA have internal aspects to them
2. How its expressed is dependent on style
3. the modern idea of internal / external distinction
IMO seems to be confused when applied to CMA ..

This teachers demo looks very similar to the others can you share a little about the lineages you posted about.

I don't agree all systems have internal but most Chinese styles do
But to my way of thinking that does not make them an internal system
The first system was from Hak fu chan,I didn't train in the system but they decided to teach it to women
I had a woman so I sent her along to get the form
The second system was out of Hong Kong I can't remember the teachers name but he has a book on lama sword
His student got me a job at the banana markets and would teach me in breaks in our working day
I didn't practice them for very long because I had stuff that I thought was better
He instructed me heavily in noi gung both lama and Chen ting Huns Wu style
I thought the Wu was better so stuck with that
Don't put power into the form let it naturally arise from the form
