Five Family Shaolin

I am one month into Five family Shaolin Kung fu. The forms are good. I appreciate the Xing yi breathing techniques. This is a much different approach to martial arts than i am used to. The last five years i have been training in Commando Krav Maga, Naphtali and generally focused on slef defense and close quarter combat. This has been much more violent and invigorating. I find that Kung fu is contemplative, I like it.

Not really, Aikido is developed from Japanese Aiki-Jujutsu, with rumoured Chinese kungfu input. Krav Maga is a military combative system, developed in the middle-east/Isreal. The two are worlds apart.
