Technique

As much of styles originating in the south of China, Wuzuquan is centered on the techniques of hands; the kicks are not used that to strike under the belt.

One seeks "to stick" the adversary to prevent it from carrying attacks, and to put it out of combat of some strike powerful and decisive; the simplicity and the saving in movement are characteristics of the style.


Wuzuquan adopted White Crane its techniques of hands and the use of the point of the fingers, style of the monkey strike them palm and dodgings, of Taizuquan its techniques of legs, Luohanquan its displacements short, and Xuannuquan its exercises of conditioning of the body.

Any connection to kenpo?
EDIT: Because, so many karate styles seem to take something from five ancestors, like goju-ryu and kyokushin, i heard that most karate can be linked to kenpo.

Is this mixed with kenpo as well?

That is like asking if there is any connection to Kung fu. Kenpo is a generic term.

Nope Kenpo kind of like saying our take on kung fu in okinawan ....

at least thats my interpretation of it , literally a translation of Quan fa ,

Fist law ?

theres styles around that call themselves Kempo , the Ed Parkers etc , but in a true sense it`s a much broader label than that .

Five Ancestor Fist uses a form of Sanchin (called Sam Chien in Chinese), but they did not create Sanchin. Five Ancestor Fist dates back to the late 1800s and its creator was a contemporary of Kanryo Higashionna (the teacher of Goju Ryu's founder).

Here is a list of available videos:

I have the first one. Their Sanchin is in many ways similar to the way Goju practices Sanchin.

And there is also a book available by Alexander Co, the same person who made the videos:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/080483 ... e&n=283155

In the book and some magazine articles Co and another Five Ancestor stylist have tried to make the claim that Five Ancestor Fist is the parent of all Okinawan karate, Goju Ryu and Uechi Ryu in particular. While Five Ancestor definitely seems related to Goju and Uechi, to the same extent as Goju and Uechi are related to each other, it is doubtful as the parent of either. It is more likely that the 3 are sister styles with similar influences.
