This is Daoyin from Vietnam. Elsewhere I have explained that the Daoyin Paulie Zink does has about twenty animals, it was a Daoist religious theatrical martial training system for animal role specialists. Paulie Zink was explicitly being taught monkey kungfu (or Tai Sheng, which means Great Sage which is another name for the Monkey King). All the animals were at times framed as being supportive training for learning the difficult parts of the various monkey roles (there are five of them). Another way to understand it is that monkey is just the most developed role of the twenty animal roles. That's how he explained it to me one afternoon, but I don't have that in writing or anything.
That is why I was delighted to find this video on Youtube. It is almost certainly the same system, the snake movements are the same, but this woman has the full blown snake role. I would love to know if she has little bits of all the other animals or if she just learned this one? In any event, if this type of Animal Role Specialist Daoyin is old, like 500 years old, I'm betting there were at one time experts for every single animal. Are there any other high quality masters of animal daoyin out there? Experts in an animal other than snake or monkey? I know there are dog kungfu experts but that appears to be a lesser amateur style. Are there any pig masters for instance? How about crab masters? Or frog masters? Send me the links if you find them! Please. Also I'm taking a break from Facebook so if you comment there, please comment here too. Thanks.
