Learn Hua Style Kung Fu on Hua Mountain LIVE!

Jake Mace from the South Peak and Summit of Hua Shan in China. Jake was going to film a Kung Fu video for you but since there were so many people at the peak it turned into a mini performance. The Chinese people in attendance were so nice and had a lot of fun seeing a blonde haired “Wai Guo Ren” doing Kung Fu on Hua Shan. It was about 0 degrees Centigrade and a beautiful clear day!!!

Shaolin 7-star kung fu (qi xing quan)

Por | Shaolin kung fu | Sem comentários

instructor: monk Deci, from Shaolin temple

Shaolin kung fu 7-star and big defensive-intent style (七星拳&长护心意门: qi xing quan & chang hu xinyi men):

– ‘combat strategy’: this style teaches tactics of defending. the saying is “change from guest to host (反客为主).” the normal logic is that the attacker actively advances and attacks and the defender passively retreats and defends. reverse these, i.e., actively advance while in defensive guard and seize opportunities to make defense act as offense. in close range, defense acts as offense by intercepting the opponent’s move. “steal beams and replace pillars (偷梁换柱),” i.e., intercept the logistics on which the opponent’s move is based. for example, when opponent is going to attack with his arm or the leg, suppress his move by hitting a supporting part of his arm or leg, like his biceps or his shin, or, as another example, instead of just blocking or avoiding his kicking leg, intercept his move by targeting his other, supporting leg. in such attacks, “befriend distant enemies, attack the neighbor (远交近攻),” target closer points, because short-range attacks are both quicker and much safer while in defensive guard. these are the main tactics of Shaolin defensive style.

– ‘history’: ‘chang hu xinyi men’ was first created by the Song dynasty monk Huiwei (惠威) in the early 1100s. it first had about 36 postures. his disciple, monk Haizhou (海舟), increased it to about 66 postures. in the late Yuan dynasty (1279-1368), monk Jinnaluo (紧那罗) increased it to 72 and monk Zian (子安) to 82. monk Juexun (觉训) and, in the Ming dynasty (1368-1644), monk Tongxiang (通祥) improved the form. in the Qing dynasty (1644-1912), in the mid 1700s, monk Jiran (寂然) removed 28 repetitive postures and added 30 new postures and it became about 84 postures in total.
meanwhile, after the Yuan dynasty, some Daoist concepts, like astrological notions, were introduced into Shaolin temple via outsider visitors. one of these was the astrological notion of the 7 stars, that is, another name for the big dipper constellation, which, in Chinese martial arts, refers to any formation that resembles the shape of the big dipper, like the closed-guard formation of the arms in ‘qi xing quan’ (7-star form). Shaolin monks developed qi xing quan sometime before the early 1600s by combining Shaolin xinyi ba style, which imitates daily and farming activities by using harmonious arm movements in small-frame stances, with rooster-imitating gestures, postures, and moves, and this 7-star concept. these small-frame 7-star and rooster notions were also combined into the chang hu xinyi men form in the latter edittings mentioned above. in this way, qi xing quan and chang hu xinyi men were formed and perfected.

Shaolin small power kung fu (pao quan), extended

Por | Shaolin kung fu | Sem comentários

Shaolin kung fu power style (炮拳: pao quan):

– ‘combat strategy’: this style teaches tactics of using power. the saying is “use fire to plunder (趁火打劫),” panic the opponent to force him yield. one way of this is by overloading power in your actions. to multiply power in your actions, “use the dead corpse (借尸还魂),” use seemingly useless things and make them enhance your power. use already unused parts of your body. for example, instead of using just one arm at a time, whether in attack or defense, use both your arms together or in close succession. this multiplies power in your moves, which is of great use specially against stronger opponents. these are the main tactics of Shaolin power style.

– ‘history’: there are historical records that Shaolin monks performed a pao chui (cannon hammer) style in an exhibition in presence of the first Tang dynasty (618-907) emperor. however, pao quan was first officially compiled in the early Song dynasty (960s AD) under the supervision of chief monk Fuju (福居). in the late Yuan dynasty (1279-1368), monk Jinnaluo (紧那罗) improved this pao quan form. this was the ‘small pao quan’. in the mid Qing dynasty (1644-1912), the early 1800s, monk Zhanju (湛举) combined pao quan techniques into a base of small and big hong quan, tong bi quan, luohan quan, and some other materials to create the ‘big pao quan’. specially, there was a set called Shaolin xinyi ba, which is still widely practiced in Dengfeng area around Shaolin temple. this set imitates daily and farming activities by combining standing and small-frame stances with the pounding moves of the arms and fists, which use whole the body to generate explosive power. Zhanju combined xinyi ba moves into the small and big pao quan and perfected them.
