We originally intended to use this site as a
video archive, documenting the techniques which
characterize Gun Fu, particularly the Iron Crane School.
It proved to be a very considerable project, growing far
beyond anything we had originally conceived. In this
section, we provide a quick and clean glimpse into what
can be found in considerably more detail elsewhere
within. Just think as though you were peeking through a
hole in the fence. Then head into the site and start
some cases, the videos shown in this section were the
cuts and castaways from more lengthly recordings. We
saved them rather than discarding, frankly because they
were fun to view when we had nothing better to do.
In some instances, you will find the quality poor. We
apologize for that. These were filmed on what would
today be considered primitive cameras. Compounding the
situation, the archives of originals, and copies of
originals, have degraded over time. So, bottom line,
we're serving up the best we have available. We think
you'd agree this is preferrable to simply letting them
from videos embedded from our YouTube channel, uploaded
clips are in the *.wmv format. We feel this format
provides the best combination of quality and
compression, allowing for good viewing at relatively
fast download speeds. You will need Version 7 (or
higher) of Windows Media Player to view the *.wmv
files. The videos should be played in a reduced
view for better clarity. You will lose detail if
you enlarge them to full screen.
I should that over time, we took care to document how
our art was influenced by other philosophies and styles
(For our detailed lineage, click
here). No where is this more evident than in our
Kata section (click here to see Kata).
In the words of my buddy Master Don Wasielewski, “We
celebrate our differences!”, and look for the value in
everything as part of our search for truth.
