Or know of any DVDs that give a good overview of the style?

Yeah, that's the one. I've seen clips on YouTube and it looks interesting. Supposedly a mixture of Shaolin and Taoist styles which sounds cool as hell. (although you always have to take kung fu history with a grain of salt of course.)

Will check out Qigong Magazine and BudoVidoes, thanks!

Pak Mei is a Hakka Style. It shares all the characteristics of Southern Hakka systems, short hands, elbows tucked, narrow stance with concaved chest. Related arts are Dragon shape with Grinding bridge(Loong ying Mor kiu), Chu/Chow Gar Taang Long(Southern Mantis), Jook Lum Taang Long. Due to the fact that Lam Yiu Kwai of Dragon style and Cheung Lai Chuen of White Eyebrow were classmates under Lam's uncle and very close friends, there exists some overlap in these two arts in particular and its not uncommon that the two arts are taught by one Instructor if they're from the Guangdong/Guangzhou lineage.
