Wu Xing Long Quan Gung Fu is not a traditional style of kung fu but a style that as changed with the times. Although most the fighting techniques are as old as the hills themselves, the way of applying them and the thinking behind the philosophy have changed to be as effective has possible for the survival of a modern day street situation.
About 20 years ago the school or kwoon was known as a school of Hungar.This was not a pure style of Hungar as the Sifu who taught us " Master Eddie Pue " had intermingled it with another kung fu style. Master E. Pue was awarded the rank of Tenth chi by Nipon dai budo-Kai International were he became part of the comitee. The school strugled for a while under Sifu Fiddler until Marc Johnston and Robert Forster gained their first degree black sash through the A.M.A. in 1995. In 2007 Sifu Marc Johnston split up partnership with Sifu R. Forster and after a small break from the martial arts due to injury started the Carlisle School Of Kung Fu. After training in Lau Gar, Wing Chung and Tae Kwon Do, Sifu Marc has formed the Carlisle School of Kung Fu and is trainging under the style of Wu Xing Long Quan Gung Fu and is the beginning of a strong school to come.
As with so many styles of martial arts, particularly Kung fu, original styles are diluted as the years go by and secrets are passed from one student to another, either things are misinterpreted or simply adapted to suit a particular person. There are a lot of different views to this, I personally think that as long as you keep discipline and the knowledge of your arts history and philosophy then no harm can be done to the martial arts. After all if no one had ever experimented and swapped and changed techniques then we would all still be defending or selves with dinosaur bones.
If a style of martial arts suits a particular person and they are happy with what they are doing traditional or not, should not be an issue.
