Keep practicing your moves young grasshopper, and
one day you may become a kung fu master! We purchased this beautifully detailed
diagram from our friend Sherman, who began painting kung fu posters when the
ones at the Malacca Ching Wu Athletic Association started falling apart. Copied
from the old posters, the results were so neat that Sherman (who used to
regularly attend the Athletic Association’s Seven Star Praying Mantis class) decided
to start selling them in his store, too. A second-generation Malaysian—his
grandfather came from the Hunan province in China—Sherman has been practicing
martial arts since he was 17. He told us this poster depicts traditional set
routines from the Peng Pu Quien, or
“Stomping Set Boxing” style.
