    Kung Fu – a popular word of Chinese origin, has a deeper meaning to those who truly understand it. Kung fu actually describes any person’s success or honed skill that is attained after diligent training. Taking that into account, the real word Kung fu can be used to portray any skill achieved in such training, and it is distinctly different that any form of martial arts there is.

    Despite it all, kung fu (also called gung fu) is typically used to describe a noteworthy aspect of the Chinese martial arts in the modern era. With that being said, the word is representative of highly specialized styles of martial which are somewhat difficult to find the origins. This is what sets the Chinese arts apart from a lot of other forms of martial arts, where a clearer origins can be traced.ed.

    The diverse kung fu styles listed in the article give readers an idea about the range of techniques and ways of self-defense used in Kung fu. These styles need a lot of practice and dedication to hone them.

    Crane Style Kung Fu Styles
    This kung fu technique was created by Fang Qiniang, a female martial artist. Intricate hand movements and near proximity combat are the essentials of this style. The movements pattern the graceful movements of cranes. The flying crane technique imitates the flapping movement of wings.

    Snake Style Kung Fu Techniques
    Snake style techniques are used to bring about fluidity in movements. This fluidity which resembles the movements of snake is useful in entwining the body around that of the opponent. It helps defend in a better manner. The attacking moves can also be made from different angles by adopting this technique.

    Praying Mantis Kung Fu Style
    The praying mantis kung fu style belongs to either “Northern Praying Mantis” or the “Southern Praying Mantis”.

    Northern Praying Mantis
    This style was developed in Shadong, a northeastern Chinese region. The Northern praying mantis employs the methods of avoiding enemy blows that are given straight at you. The technique involves circular or whip-like movements. The praying mantis hook made with 1 – 3 fingers is used in targeting the eyes and also in blocking the attacks of the enemy.

    Southern Praying Mantis
    It was created by Hakka people who lives in China’s southwest province. This technique is unlike the Northern Praying Mantis and place importance on proximal combat. The use of low kicks is limited and hand movements are given more emphasis.

    Monkey Kung Fu Style
    The monkey style kung fu style patterns monkey or ape-like actions. The monkey techniques are popularly known as ‘Monkey Fist’. The hidden strength in this kung fu technique is the use of a range of swords, spears and other objects. The important techniques of monkey-style kung fu are “Tai Shing Pek Kwar” and “Hou Quan.”

  • How To Give A Baby Shower With A Monkey Theme

    Comments Off on How To Give A Baby Shower With A Monkey Theme
    May 7, 2017 /  Primates, Uncategorized

    If you are looking for an idea for a baby shower with huge amounts of entertainment and decorating potential, then a monkey theme is perfect. It is also a great way to celebrate a shower for parents who have decided to keep their baby a delivery surprise. The monkey theme is totally neutral, and there are vast amounts of items to choose from to help put the shower together. There are plenty of options, either in stores or online, for everything from invitations and tableware to thank you notes and favors.
    Instructions
    oGet input from the mother-to-be on what type of monkey theme she would like: bright, subdued, cartoon-like, tropical, safari, Curious George, etc. As there are so many different styles of designs available, you might want her help in narrowing down the choice.
    oChoose the colors for the baby shower. It could be the colors of the nursery or the color specific to the gender of the baby, but it will help set the scene for the shower. Choose yellow, brown and green to really keep within the theme.
    oChoose monkey-themed baby invitations to alert the shower guests to the theme. Guests often like to purchase a gift or nursery dcor based on the theme of a shower. There are plenty of invitations to choose from, but pick one that suits your colors and that you can base the decorations around. Use creative wording like “help us welcome our little monkey into the world,” “barrel of monkeys” or “monkeying around” to keep the theme going.
    oChoose a monkey cake for the shower. This is a must-have and not too difficult to make and decorate at home if you are able to find a monkey cake pan. Alternatively, bake cupcakes and draw icing monkeys on them, making sure they have big monkey ears!
    oTry making monkey-themed food like banana bread, banana and tropical smoothies, or use a chocolate fountain with bananas for dipping.
    oUse palm trees and vines as your room dcor for the shower. Keep table centerpieces simple by using a brightly colored vase to match your colors and placing a large palm leaf into it. Add a raffia table skirt, and you will have the perfect tropical monkey theme for your guests.
    oPrint out, or purchase, a large color picture of a monkey. Cut the tail off, and pin the tail on the monkey will be the ideal party game.
    Tips & Warnings
    Try using a monkey theme based on a “celebrity monkey” like Curious George, or maybe even the popular Sock Monkey or Mod Monkey.
    If you are on a budget, there are plenty of free e-mail invitations to use instead of paper invitations. This will leave you money to spend on other things.
    There are so many options available for this theme that you could easily end up spending way too much money and having too many monkey items. Be careful not to purchase too many accessories; be creative with dcor and food instead.

  • A harpy eagle attacks death harvests the weak monkey

    At the end of the afternoon I was coming back from the forest with my field assistant, when we heard a noise some 500 metres away from us. We hurried towards it and followed the loud alarm calls. When I was some 20 metres away from it I saw a group of white-bellied spider monkeys (Ateles belzebuth) vocalising agitatedly and close by was another group of red howler monkeys (Alouatta seniculus), also vocalising loudly. I thought that they must be engaged in an agonistic meeting, possibly competing for some food source or other, but, to my utter surprise, I saw, just above them in an emergent tree, a majestic harpy eagle (Harpia Harpyja) holding an old female howler monkey in its claws that it had just attacked.

    The howler was still debating occasionally, but was mostly hanging from the tree trunk. The harpy eagle had one foot on its chest and the other supporting itself in the tree. As soon as the harpy eagle saw us, it tried to fly away with the big howler in its claws, but instead, it released the monkey from its grip.

    I then collected the howler, which was still alive, but she died on the way back to the field base. As soon as it died, hundreds of nematode worms came out of its body through the natural cavities (mouth, ears, rectum and vagina) and also through the wounds the harpy eagle had inflicted on it. It was also infested by hundreds of fly eggs and larvae (dipterans, or flies), which had spread all over its fur. Interestingly though, the dipterans eggs were carefully laid halfway along each strand of fur, almost in a calculated synchrony.

    This apparent health condition, together with the fact that her teeth were heavily worn out and decayed, only one third intact and blackened with age, with three missing and one broken, makes me assume that this older female may well have been sick, weak and consequently more susceptible to attack.

    Considering that assemblages of up to three primate species are fairly common in the study area, as are polyspecific choruses, including for instance, spider monkeys, howler monkeys, and squirrel monkeys (Saimiri sciureus), we think that it makes a lot of sense that harpy eagle predation may be more directed towards senile debilitated individuals. All the others would be well aware of predators even before they could see them. More individuals, and more individuals of different species, with different abilities to evade predators, may jeopardize the efforts of the predator to trap them. Adult howlers, specifically, however, may pose a transport problem to harpy eagles because of their large body size.

  • Monkeys Have Strong Abs And You Can Too! Just Hang Out…

    Comments Off on Monkeys Have Strong Abs And You Can Too! Just Hang Out…
    April 28, 2017 /  Primates, Uncategorized

    During my recent trip to Costa Rica I got to go super zen and view nature from an un-American viewpoint. One thing you have to see when you are in Costa rica is the many packs of monkeys that inhabit the region. Swinging to and fro, throwing poo at each other, and occasionally getting in to your car and stealing whatever they can get their hands on is a common occurrence. Did you ever think about how they are able to swing all over the damn place all day and not get tired? Of course it is easy to say, “Well, they are monkeys.” but they don’t just pop out of their mom and start gathering bananas. (Can’t officially verify that.)
    After oooooing, awwwwing, and then chasing those damn monkeys for stealing my Alanis Morissette cd’s, I finally decided in order to have a chance at getting even, I must “train like a monkey”. So here is an excellent exercise to get a full ab workout and all you have to do is “hang out”.
    Hanging Knee Raises
    This is an extremely tough exercise that lets you work out your lower abs and your serratus muscles.
    1. Grab a pull up bar, palms out, with your arms should width apart
    2. Slowly lift your knees towards your chest making sure you are squeezing your abs the whole time – keep your feet off the ground for the whole exercise.
    3. Rinse and repeat to exhaustion
    That’s it. A ridiculous ab workout. If you really want to target those serratus muscles, alternate lifting your legs to each side.
    NOTE: It is almost a given that your wrists will give out before you abs will. In that case hang some straps from the pull up bar and slip your arms through just past your elbow. After your arms are through, the straps can help you work out your abs to exhaustion.
    Got a good ab exercise you want to let the world know about? Anyone see my Alanis cd’s? Let us know in the comments.

  • Monkey Shower Curtain For A Cool Jungle Themed Bathroom

    Comments Off on Monkey Shower Curtain For A Cool Jungle Themed Bathroom
    April 25, 2017 /  Primates, Uncategorized

    Whether creating a themed bathroom for the kids or you if young at heart and enjoyable loving then you can’t go wrong with cute monkeys and all their safari pals. There is a massive range of shower curtains available featuring monkeys. There are sophisticated designs with embroidered monkeys and bananas, too as cute cartoon monkeys swinging amongst the vines. 1 of my favourites could be the peek-a-boo monkey shower curtain with a clear viewing panel (maybe for those who really feel a small claustrophobic within the shower). Some designs are very simple with just printed monkey faces, team this having a matching floor rug and you might have an instant monkey bathroom.

    The safari range I came across is particularly cute as they have a giraffe lotion pump, monkey soap dish, and an elephant for a toothbrush holder and a lion tumbler. You’ll be able to get monkey shower curtain hooks which will brighten up a plain curtain you already have or add the finishing touch to a brand new curtain. When you wish to replace your toilet brush and holder even which is accessible having a monkey design. Wastebaskets come in many different supplies (wood and resin) and are monkey or jungle themed too. Bathroom accessories tend to be either plastic or resin and could be decorated or relief. I especially like the relief resin figures as they add a cute 3D effect to the bathroom genuinely bringing the jungle alive! An excellent helpful addition to your monkey bathroom could be a set of cute embroidered towels which come in either white or bright colours to complement your design. To save time trying to locate co-ordinating accessories purchase from a full range provided by one manufacturer including the safari or the monkey business range and all the difficult work is carried out for you personally.

    If you look further afield than the bathroom department when shopping you will uncover monkey and jungle animal curtain tie backs to improve your bathroom theme. Also a wonderful range of art to decorate the walls, such as decals which come in a variety of designs and most are removable. Check using the manufacturer first that they’re suitable for wet areas like bathrooms. Please do not neglect your toilet when generating over the bathroom – a padded toilet seat cover will add the perfect touch or have you seen the now excellent range of removable toilet seat tattoos available in round and elongated to suit most toilet seats. Start with your option of favourite monkey shower curtain and let inspiration, imagination and creativity take you from there.

  • Monkey Suit

    Comments Off on Monkey Suit
    April 25, 2017 /  Primates, Uncategorized

    Be yourself and do your best”, I believe that the previous comment has been one of the foundations of any motivational speaker and all the “feel good” movies starring Adam Sandler; unfortunately I’m beginning to discover that this is not real, and that lying and deception are the keys to success. What makes these awful qualities complete is the right wardrobe, and what better attire to use in deception than the “Monkey Suit”.

    According to urban slang a monkey suit is “a uniform that one wears to work every day”. Well, when you think about it, you live in a concrete jungle with tall buildings and you’re climbing these buildings and swinging from office to office to get those bananas at the end of the month… Hence: Monkey Suit. Now that we have passed the cartoon images in my head, let’s see what started this topic. Nobody can deny that suits look good, and they can turn heads in meetings and sometimes seal some deals, but the glorified status that the suits have taken compared to the employee’s actual work is very weird.

    Society today perceive a person on the way they look, their attitude, sense of humor and showing up early as a sign of discipline (Trained Monkey) and far down the list your actual work lays there; Well not that far but its nowhere near the top. If anyone is familiar with the show “Suits”, there is a character who is a drug dealer but wears a 2000$ suit and no one would ever suspect he is a drug dealer. It’s amazing what this monkey suit can do to people. Now comes the hard question budgeting the bananas you get at the end of the month to buy new suits and still have some left to make yourself a nice banana milk shake at the end of the day for you to enjoy? A real brow raiser. Can I just buy a monkey and leave the suit? It would be cheaper and a heck lot funnier.

    Finally, we need to review our priorities in life and begin to digest that the man or woman make the suit not the other way around. And what better way to end this than with a quote from William Arnot a Scottish preacher and theological writer in the 1800s, “If honor be your clothing, the suit will last a lifetime; but if clothing be your honor, it will soon be worn threadbare.”

    Hong Kong is inspiring. The eye popping architecture and sleek design of their buildings and places or rest, work or play are inspiring to see. The wonder of the mind and its capability are ever so apparent in Hong Kong. Irrespective of the trendy shopping, buzzing nightlife and indulgent cuisine, Hong Kong is very much aware of its roots and culture. One would find a host of festivals and celebrations taking place throughout the year, very much as it has been the practice for centuries before.

    Some of the festival and events in Hong Kong to take place this year is Pixar’s 25 year anniversary celebration, Italy 2011 a celebration of food, clothes, music and film from the graceful nation, the Chinese Opera Festival, the International Arts Carnival, Lan Kwai Fong Beer Fest, and many other consumer, sports and concerts.

    For the tourist looking to understand the undertones of the culture of Hong Kong will find the Chinese Lunar New Year, Lantern Festival, Hung Shing Festival, Seven Sisters Festival, Dragon Boat Festival, Mid-Autumn Festival, Hungry Ghost Festival, Ching Ming Festival and the Monkey God Festival to be delightful.

    The Monkey God first made an appearance in a novel that dates back to the Ming Dynasty, which was from (1386 to 1644) by the name of Pilgrim to the West. The storyline goes that the Monkey God was sent out from Taoist Heaven and redeemed his status by gaining Buddhist immortality. He escorted the Tang Xuan Zang on a pilgrimage that led him to obtaining the learning’s of Lord Buddha. During the previous festivals, the Monkey God is said to have possessed a number of monks to do bizarre acts such as climb stairs made of knives and walk on hot coal without injuring themselves. This was said to be in reflection of the challenges the Monkey God had to go through when he descended from Heaven and in his journey to India.

    Today, the festival is celebrated either in the month of October or September by burning incense and much regalia. There is a temple dedicated to the Monkey God in Kowloon, which can be found on Pao Tat Estate.

  • Lifelike Monkey Dolls Support Rainforest Preservation

    Comments Off on Lifelike Monkey Dolls Support Rainforest Preservation
    April 8, 2017 /  Primates, Uncategorized

    If you live in the United States, you live in a part of the world where monkeys are not found in nature, except in zoos around the country. Habitats for monkeys around the world are quickly shrinking due to people’s encroachment upon their environments, which is disturbing to consider. However, if you are an animal lover, there is something that you can do to help monkeys around the world, and that is to purchase a monkey doll from a fine collectibles online gallery. When you do, a portion of the purchase price is donated by the fine collectibles online gallery to support rainforest preservation.

    Highly skilled artists craft these monkey dolls, which are not actually intended for children but rather for adult collectors, so that they have amazing lifelike features. The dolls, which depict baby monkeys, are posable, so you can set them up however you wish when you display them in your home. Collector-quality silicone is used to create the heads and limbs of the monkey doll. This silicone is used by the doll artists to create doll feet, hands and faces that are realistic when compared to actual monkey babies in the wild.

    Of course, the dolls do come dressed in beautiful outfits, unlike real monkeys, but the detail on the outfits is also made to bring a smile to your face. The eyes on the dolls are large and lifelike, creating a gentle countenance. The eye lashes on the dolls are thick and dark, to emphasize their beautiful eyes. And wispy red hair is used to offer even more realism to the doll’s body.

    There are several baby monkey dolls available on the fine collectibles market today. Orangutan dolls are especially popular, as are the Little Umi and Little Risa dolls.

    When you purchase a monkey doll from a fine collectibles gallery website, you will also be given the opportunity to sign up for a subscription list. The subscription lists at these galleries allow you to order a complete collection of many different types of dolls. This allows you to collect an entire set without risk that the price of the dolls will rise before you can purchase them all. The dolls are shipped to your home and you can check them out in person, choosing to keep them or send them back at your discretion. No obligation subscriptions mean that you can cancel the subscription without penalty. Please visit a fine collectibles gallery website to see the range of dolls available for purchase.
