Grandmaster,

You probably have noticed the increasing popularity of the brazilian jiu-jitsu styles such as gracie and machado families and all.
My question is: are there any Chinese schools (Choy lee Fut or others) who specialise a great deal in groundfighting?
If there are what are their locations?

I really like Clf,it makes me understand my body en energy use better but i also would like to improve my groundfigfhting techniques/grappling,preferrably within the Choy lee fut system.

I hope you can find the time to answer yet another of my questions!

I don't know about the other schools, but our school teach ground fighting techniques and grapplings, those are part of the chin-na techniques in clf.

im aware of that Grandmaster but i was wondring if there is any clf school within the federation which offers a more extensive programme on it,e.g. at least 4 training days a week of groundfight practise.
What im used to is most of the days is formpractise or other things and not too manytimes chin'na or groundfighting.
Sorry if im not clear but english isnt my native language!

I have no idea how's other federation schools run their classes. you can email them or call around to ask them. but for sure no other real chinese martial arts school in the world can teach four times per week for ground fighting techniques. if they have, they might hired someone from outside to teach for them. if our schools teach ground fighting and chin-na too many days, our competitors also say that we don't know any choy li fut, therefore we keep teaching other techniques and other clf schools also call us phony clf schools too.

most of our students who love ground fighting techniques, they get together to practice on their own. if you know push hand well, you can get out from any holding easily.

actually that is what we did with a couple of students!
problem is that everyone has a different agenda as in time so training becomes irregular,i like to train at least 4 times a week so i can try and ave an accepteble basic level at it.
I know push hands but have much to learn,the tai chi si hings can easily push me off.(the ones you've met when you were visiting the school)
I will start practising push hands more.
Thank you for your time!
