    I am sometimes asked if there exists a video of myself, performing the LHBF exercise or its' predecessor 'water' boxing.  Yes, there is and also..was; meaning, I do not have a copy.

   One, or rather three videos were made, all at one time, from three different angles during a 
seminar I gave in 2005 in Bangkok for the benefit of 'advancing' the knowledge of NATSTA teachers who previously had had only the second-hand knowledge from Dr.Lu  [ Lu York-wai ] via Vince Black as he was taught.  [ some of the students were miffed at the idea that either was in error about anything or that my differing knowledge differed from what was taught to Vince Black. ]

    I permitted this video on the condition that I would receive a copy of each and to decide upon editing.  

The content that I demonstrated was partially HK LHBF, partly LHBF with YiQuan as created by Li Chung and Han Xing-yuan, and partly 'water-boxing' as taught to me via Ho Xing, a Sun LuTang student whom Msr. Sun permitted his daily tea friend Wu Yi-hui to tutor, and lastly, partly my own, the more flowing, waterspirit which is more 'water' flowing stepping with aspects of Ki-aikido.

    However, I have never recieved any copy as made by NATSTA.  I thus cannot comment on this recording nor upon the organization and its' renged promises.

Video-Media :

There are four known archives for LHBF video media :

> the YouTube clips, about which I would advise some caution.

 The YouTube site is progressively becoming the largest and the worst; commercialism and favortism... 'by self-named 'teachers' LHBF

> a German site   which is public, but which existed prior to youtube.

> a Vimeo site, maintained by Erik Matthiesen; this is also the only site that records the meetings of LHBF groups in China..which are also visited by other teacher, american, hong kong, and european. 

> private archives. These are either collective archives or are unique 8mm films of individual teachers or rarely a seminar of teachers.  I am also aware that some teachers maintain a lifetime collection and that access to them ceases when the teacher deceases.

Personal Bests :
  If asked 'what do I recommend' it would not be the traditional LHBF forms as is; they are acceptable, if understood thoroughly, and if their source is also understood.  This is usually not possible.
  Some of the variations upon LHBF which include alternatives and aspects of Wang Xiang-zhai's or the Han Brothers Yi-chuan with basics derived from the now called 'Tai Chi-Ruler' and some turning variations ie. Aikido, make it more complete and understandable.
