"This video is good as a basic introduction to this style. It came out 15 or more years ago on VHS, if I remember right. The overall production quality and level of performance might not be as polished as what you would see today in most martial arts videos, but for it's time it was a good introduction to the style. A basic white crane form is presented, and a two-man form is shown which was interesting as it shows the footsweeps. The white crane style has very many forms, like choy li fut, and I don't know what this one is as I'm not expert at this style, but it would have been nice if they had said which one it is. Also shown are the basic stances, footwork, hand and foot techniques. White crane is considered a very refined style of kung fu. In such a brief introduction, it's impossible to go into that level here, but overall, a decent intro to the style from a time when there wasn't much else out there."
