The Way Of The Two Brothers

The Way Of The Two Brothers, or Fa Lyang Disyung, is known mainly by those students who studied it at Yengtao Temple. It was created by the brothers Teng-Hsan and Teng-Hu, who are thought by some to be two of the original founders ofYengtao Temple (see below). Since the Temple's destruction, no master has publicly offered to teach this style; it is possible that there is no one left alive who is qualified to do so.

The style's central principle is this: an opponent who is on the ground is a much poorer fighter than one who is standing. Consequently, most of the style's maneuvers are designed to knock an opponent down (i.e., they include the Throw element). When used in an Array, as the brothers Teng used it, the Way Of The Two Brothers can be a devastatingly effective martial art.
