Cao Dai Kung-Fu: Lost Fighting Arts of Vietnam
by Dr. Haha Lung
– From the rear cover:
Dr. Haha Lung gives a general overview of the land and characteristics of the people, giving readers the basis for an understanding of Vietnam’s history and how this contributed to the rise of the Cao Dai religion.
The author reminds us that the word “martial” means “war.” While there may be beauty in a perfectly performed practice session, this “art” aspect takes a backseat to the “martial” in a life and death struggle. The purpose of martial arts, after all, is to complement your war arsenal. In a battlefield situation, unarmed martial arts are what you use between weapons. The purpose of Cao Dai Kung-Fu is to teach you how to get that arsenal fully armed.
To this end the martial arts instructions in this book are written in an easy to understand manner with helpful illustrations and diagrams, so that even one uninitiated to the martial arts can find useful tips to store away in preparation for self defense in general.
*Can Qua: “Shield and Spear”
*The Three “Knows”
*Long Nhan: The Way of the Cao Dai Warrior
*Bihn Co: “Strategy and Tactics”
*Methods of Movement
*Where to Strike
*How to Strike
*Combat with Weapons
*The Five Kinds of Weapons
*”The Eight Sounds”
*Am Hiem: Subterfuge and Stealth
*Dac Vien: Special Agents; Special Skills
*And much, much more!
Dr. Haha Lung says to use whatever you can that works – headbutting, kicking the side of the knee; there’s all kinds of useful information you will be glad you have some day. For in- stance, “Modern day street fighters often dip their fingers into bleach, hot sauce, or any toxic substance that can then be thrust into an opposing fighter’s eyes, nose and mouth during a no- holds barred fight.” Or “Any time your hand touches the ground fill it with something: dirt, a rock, a stick, etc. Snowball is better than no ball.”
Anything on your body – your head, feet, elbows, knees, hands – can be used to disable your opponent. Your options as to where and how to strike into your opponent will be limited only by your imagination.”
