Much respect to this man!
From almost getting killed in a lynching, to be being sent to war, being commanded by the same type of motherfuckers that only wanted him dead - survive the war, coming home mentally scared, to be able to find his "oasis" which helped him get by and not go crazy, to making movies, move to China and have a career, get the respect he never got back home. All that negative shit and he still kept it together to make it to where he is today.

According to Wikipedia: Chinese Goju, Goju-Ryu Karate, Jujutsu, Wing Tsun, Daitō-ryū Aiki-jūjutsu, Eskrima, Okinawan Kobudo.
Chinese Goju being the system he developed and now is the grandmaster of.

i haven't gotten any formal training in over a year but this style seems to be in our dna. similar to the part in the movie "Rize" when the african parallels were drawn between crumping and ritual dance.
originated in angola. brought west when the portugese stole us. we disguised the art into a dance to hide it from massa.
i practice what little i know at least 3 mornings a week and watch the vids for inspiration.
the form is so fluid. i could watch these vids all day and sometimes do.
as a kid i studied won ji ku and tae kwon do. but that was over 20 years ago.

hung gar is one im researching
i once heard it is beneficial to the practictioner two learn a grappling form (BJJ, Aikido, etc)

martial arts is more mental than anything else - sometimes, systems can limit you to certain moves - if the foundation of your form is perfect,you can incorporate all systems in your walk
