The Tang family were another Foshan-based Wing Chun lineage.
Tang Yik was renowned for his capabilities with the pole.
Those of us working with the 9 foot pole know what it means to see a guy handling it like this, in terms of his structural capabilities. Holy crap!
That exercise where you are standing in the horse and are raising and lowering the pole along your centerline is very difficult and he is doing it no problem with a standard sized pole. That is no joke.
