History of Ermie Mountain Sup Yee Zhuang

During the Southern Song Dynasty in 1227 AD a Wudang Daoist martial and medicinal priest named White Cloud, came to Emei's Golden Summit, became a Buddhist monk and eventually the Sudden Enlightenment abbot of the Hua Zang Temple. After writing the Precious Lotus Cannon and formulating the External Energy Diagnosis and Treatment System Samantabhadra came to him in a vision and told him to pass on his knowledge to the next generation to help rid the world of pain and suffering and to let the light of the lineage shine like the sun. Undisturbed for eight centuries the monastics who practiced this tradition enjoyed a peaceful co-existence with the natural radiance of Emei Mountain until WWII. During the war Master Yongxin passed the lineage onto Zhou Qianchuan who went to Shanxi, Province and opened an Emei clinic there. He taught the public for the first time in history ......"

Ermie Sup Yee Zhuang and the Wing Chun connection

Ermie Mountain's Sup Yee Zhuang was first connected to the Wing Chun Kuen system by Cho Gar? Master Cho Hong Choi and his student Hendrik Santo?. The first book published on the Ermie Sup Yee Zhuang and its Kuen Kuit, by Dr.Chow back in the late 1970's/early 1980's, astonished both Cho Sifu and Hendrik, as the never before released Kuen Kuit from Ermie mountain, had direct correspondance with the Kuen Kuit, that Cho Hong Choi preserved. The interesting thing is the Ermie system had been a closed-door tradition for almost 800 years, so the chances for modern cross-polintation seemed slim.

Upon further investigation, after the passing of his Sifu, Hendrik discovered other material linking the Ermie system to that of the Cho Gar branch, he learned from Cho Hong Choi. It was also speculated that the Ermie system made up 50% of the Wing Chun system, and that the remaining 50% had direct relation to pre-1850's White Crane boxing, as the remaining Cho Hong Choi Kuen Kuit, that didnt match to the Ermie Kuen Kuit, actually matched to the White Crane Kuen Kuit that Lee Kong? Sifu of Hong Kong preserves.

Hendrik has stated that the Kuen Kuit, that his Sifu passed down, was actualy the hand-written artifacts of Opera Performer Yik Kam, the Wing Chun Master that taught the Cho Familythe Wing chun system. This would time-stamp the writtings to ruffly the 1850's. He also believes that the writtings somehow imply a Fukinese dialect. These hand-written papers have never been indepedently verified, translated nor carbon dated, by any source, other than Hendrik.

Over the years Hendrik has posted online, various exerps from what he calls the "Yik Kam - Siu Lien Tau - Kuen Kuit". These exerpts have been compared to the Kuen Kuit, of other branchs of Cho Gar, including Cho On family inheritor Ku Choi Wah, Sam Chan's inheritor Cheung Way Boe, and Cho Chuen descendants living in Poon Yu Village. No match currently has been found.

Research into the roots and source of the Wing chun Kuen system is still ongoing, by the likes of the AWCKRI, Robert Chu, Hendrik Santo?, Rene Ritchie?, and the VTM?.
