Master Shi Guosong Demonstrates Plum Blossom Fist Meihuaquan

Here's an old video of Master Shi Guosong demonstrating the Plum Blossom Fist 梅花拳 (Méihuāquán). It was filmed at the Shaolin Temple in the early 1990s.

Plum Blossom Fist is a particularly special form as it is a primary taolu training exercise for the guards at the Shaolin Temple. It requires years of proper traditional training to master, and features strong stances combined with athletic movements to deliver practical and powerful self-defence strikes.

This form became famous due to it being announced as one of the Top 10 Shaolin Taolu Forms in 1997. As part of that announcement, Master Shi Guosong was selected as the Top Shaolin Kung Fu Master to represent it.
