Not surprised here! There are numerous very secretive Crane groups down in southern Taiwan. They don't show or tell much in front of outsiders, and they ask horrendous amounts of tuition money, even from their brethren and fellow Taiwanese.


There's a few very interesting styles I came across some clips of from Taiwan when I was looking for more stuff on Fujian styles. They seem to take two combinations of styles like 太祖化鹤, 罗汉化鹤 etc. Would love to check them out... but like you say, probably not gonna be easy.

On a similar note, a lot of people keep saying Malaysia is a good place to go for Hokkien and Hakka arts, but I haven't seen much particularly impressive online. I tried and failed to get in touch with Eric Ling. People keep pointing me to I Liq Quan, but it's not really in line with the theme of my channel.


If it's taizu crane 太祖化鹤 you're looking for then you should contact my teacher Huang laoshi in Yilan. He's very open about what he teaches, in contrast to the others that taiwandeutscher mentioned. He's also pretty accessible in Yilan and teaches for free.


For calling crane in Taiwan, one of the most open and just a joy to work with teachers is Huang laoshi in Penghu. He's very open, has most of his stuff on Youtube,will let you feel his body, etc. The only problem is he's in Penghu,which is totally worth a visit, but considering you have to fly there,it isn't very convenient to train with him.


BTW, I wanted to say thanks for doing the series on southern shaolin. The videos were all great, especially the one ones on wuzuquan. People practicing crane arts should get more exposure.

Thanks, that would be really awesome! I will keep it in mind and get in touch with you at a later date! Impossible to plan any travel for the next 6 months it seems.
