Born by Caesarean Section, his Mother actually watched in a large mirror over head as they cut her open to lift him out. Weighing in at only 4 lbs, the doctors said that Erle Montaigue would be a backward boy in both brain and body. Many would still think that! His Mother, Margaret Kathleen took Erle back to the hospital where he was born years later to show them that he was indeed not in that condition and was in fact thriving.
An only child and "different" to the others in his mining village, he was always picked upon and had to find different ways home from school which he just hated every day to avoid being punched and beat up in general.
His only friends being girls and in particular his constant friend Eileen. They were together from ages 3 until School was not good for Erle and by age 12 could hardly read, write or add up.
But soon realized that in order to get the girls, he would have to at least be seen to have a brain! This also proved to be one of the best things to happen to him as a huge weight was lifted from his shoulders, leaving him free to pursue girls and music. She was only just 15 and they were eventually married just after she turned Erle remained great friends with Cheryl Ann till the day he died, who has been re-married for about 30 years now.
Erle took on a job as an apprentice Telephone Technician in and caused havoc in the teaching institution run by the then General Post Office.
So his sojourn with the Telephone company lasted for only two years when he was chosen for a new rock musical, "Jesus Christ Revolution", followed by Godspell and Jesus Christ Superstar. Wong told Erle that he knew a martial art whereby one could become superman! So wanting to become superman after being beaten up for most of his school days , Erle was right in there to learn from this gentleman. The style which was unheard of in the West at that time, Erle discovered was Tai Chi.
Erle did many things in the music industry in Australia until when he travelled to London to further his music and acting career. But God had an ulterior motive in that he really went there to meet his 2nd Tai Chi teacher, Chu King Hung who took him on as his first student. And so the story goes! Erle has had a number of other teachers in China and those from whom, although he cannot say that he was a long term student, has learnt heaps from, such as Fuzhongwen, Shao Shan-kan and some others whose names have now faded.
In November of , Erle, his family, two dogs and business moved to the UK where they all still live in Wales. Moontagu, is what the Chinese people call Erle because they cannot pronounce his real name and means an "Old Tower" which Erle is happy with. However, Erle, being Erle, has changed some things in the original form so that they work much better and sure enough, this master has re-created these changes in his own DVD titles.
Not that he or anyone else will ever admit it as it is not prestigious to say that one has learnt from a DVD of a chap from a small village South of Sydney in Australia!
Touch of Death
Montaigue stated this man was an illegal immigrant, making his existence difficult to verify. Erle subsequently learned the remaining "qi-disruptive" forms of wudang shan from Liang Shih-kan in Dillman eventually went as far as claiming to have developed qi-based attacks that work without physical contact "no-touch knockout" techniques , a claim that did not stand up to third-party investigation and was consequently denounced as fraudulent. It is used by the protagonist at in the climax of Kill Bill: Volume 2. A dim mak attack is used to paralyze a character in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon The protagonist of the story, Kenshiro , is the successor of this style and will often end a battle stating how much time the opponent has left to live after delivering a finishing move, or follow up with his famous catchphrase, "You are already dead", before his opponent dies, usually from violently exploding.
Motaigue have known which points to strike and how to strike them but have never known why! Although some of them are very effective using palm strikes but incredible accuracy and direction is necessary. In these cases it is always better to call in the expert in these matters, the local Taiji combat person who very gingerly moves bookracks and beds motnaigue search erpe secretor out. Refresh and try again. Dim mak has become a kind of camp pop culture item which is recognized also outside the genre of martial arts films. Likewise, the montaigud Tai Lung and the mentor Montzigue both use a nerve-strike attack to paralyze the opponent.
