Kungfu Master – Real or Fake?

  • Kungfu Master – Real or Fake?

    I discovered this video on YouTube of what appears to be a Vietnamese Kungfu master demonstrating on his students. The over-the-top reactions don’t lend any credence to the teacher, however, it’s clear that he is trained in martial arts from judging his movements. Can anyone shed any light on the background of this teacher and his school?

    He’s been on the scene for a while and featured on comedy channels. I laugh at the overreactions from his students every time I watch his videos. I would love to find out if he’s legit or if these videos were made to mock kung fu masters? Those types of reactions can’t be legit, surely? haha

    I think it is the suit that gives the master special powers. The students have no t-shirt on so they cannot stop the magic from penetrating their skin. Or the video is fake and they are acting. I will let you decide 😉

    He is quite the entertainer / marketer. Upon further inquiry I noticed that his videos have millions of views, so he is doing something right. What is confusing is how serious the students appear in the videos. If I had to guess, I would say we are looking at an exceptionally well organized martial arts cult. Another observation since watching, there are no women in the school?

      In my opinion his skill is real and seems to be southern perhaps Mantis or one of the white crane delineations. What I find strange is that none of his students move like him even though their physique shows some have trained hard for yrs. I suspect that he teaches them simplified kungfu for years before passing them any skill comparable to his own.

      Hello Jason, out of curiosity, what are you looking at to conclude that his skills might be real? I don’t have the eye to distinguish good from bad when watching kung fu demonstrations and I am eager to learn how others appraise the skills on display.

      I just mean real as in he seems to have some martial experience not in that the reactions of overly stiff students would happen to anyone else. The students move in northern longfist like patterns but stop at one step stiff like they are practicing form being judged on one pattern at a time like when excersising steady stance work on plum flower poles. The way he moves is like a whole different art than his” students” and I find that strange like perhaps he is training them to be stiff so he looks/seems more impressive and they just follow like a cult having been trained into submission military style not to question.

    I believe he studied a mixture of Wing Chun and the external strength of silat. His art is very external… and he has got more gung (internal physical power) than his students, that’s why he is able to overcome them so easily. Where he is from may give you an idea of what he is trying to achieve. yes it’s real, to him anyway. As a Practitioner myself we all share a bond in martial arts – Achieving physical and mental excellence.
