    Hi everyone:

    anyone know where I can get either a book, video, D.V.D on the the La Coste numbering system? I need to show me step by step with illustrations, pictures, so can see step by how it is done instead of video that goes faster than I can see, yeah sure I could do frame by frame, but I think it's easier picture by picture


    Pak sauo

    Any know how to spell "pak sauo"?

    I usually see the Wing Chun move spelled "pak sao" (comapre "chi sao"). I can't help you with the numbering system, though!

    You could try the dvds by Guro Harley Elmore.

    No idea about the videos or books.

    I don't think it matters how you spell pak sao because it's romanized Catonese (?) and doesn't have an exact English spelling. There are different systems that are valid.

    Its kind of a tough Question...

    I have learned:

    2 different 12 count Nuberings Systems
    one 17 count Nuberings System
    one 24 count Nuberings System
    one 30 count Numbering System


    one 9 count Largo Nuberings System

    So far in the Inosanto/LaCoste System...

    (not even including the different Cinco Teros Systems/Numbering Methods)

    They all have been taught to me directly by various Instructors who all are certified directly by Guro Dan Inosanto.

    Then there are various different Forms and Variations to the "Amara" etc. etc. - so what exactly are you looking for??

    Well said... I HAVE seen a simplistic human form count--- a drawing with a certain number of angles and the paths. Which was labeled "Guro Juanito LaCoste Numbering" at one time. (before the "blends"... )
    If you are indeed looking for that, may I recommend an instructor from the Inosanto school, LucayLucay school, or perhaps a few others.
    They MAY, or may not, have it. (and some may have it--or know it--but do not teach it) Most are not in the habit of just giving it out on paper, or posting it online, --- but better teaching it to the student.
    It is not that the numbering systems are "secret" but "guarded" and better learned from an experienced instructor. Some angles/paths/routes do not translate well from weapon to paper.
    I hope the Amarraw helps... and hopefully we have all been of some assistance in the other dept's.
    God bless and good training.
