Li Shu Wen Ba Da Zhao

Li Shuwen, a martial artist from the Republic of China, said in the Eight-Chi Boxing Composer: The one with the name of the eight-chi boxing is based on the eight major moves of the boxing.

  What Li Shuwen said about the eight great moves means that the eight great moves actually sum up the essence of the entire Bajiquan routine. In the entire routine of the Bajiquan, the eight most practical fist and leg movements are extremely vicious. Moves. It can be seen from the sentence "The name of the boxer is the eight great moves of the boxing." It can be seen that the meaning of eight great moves is the generalization of the eight great moves, which is equivalent to the eight great moves actually means eight great moves. Then the eight major moves we want to know are actually the Baji in Bajiquan.


  Li Shuwen, a martial artist from the Republic of China, said:

  Xingquan has eight meanings in the heart, with eight shapes on the outside, and full of vigor and strength.

  The eight-minded people are vigilant, panic, cruel, poisonous, fierce, fierce, godly, and anxious.

  The eight-shaped ones are dragons, tigers, bears, monkeys, swallows, dogs, eagles, and quails. All-rounders, all-rounders.

  Only with the memory of the Bayi can win the game first, and the outer with the Bayi will be able to advance and retreat. Only by responding to the enemy's body with a straight body, full of vigor, and even a corner, can it be established steadily and steadily. The Bayi, Ba Xing, and Jin Fa Ba Mian all use the word "ji" as the purpose. The origin of the name of this boxing is also.

  Change fast, send urgently, be steady, and be extremely vigorous. Variations are like lightning, strokes resemble sudden quails, fixed styles are like Taishan, as strong as an arrow leaving the string, transportation and transportation must have an eight shape, and a memory of eight meanings. The eight shape song says:

  Tigers hunt sheep fiercely and fiercely, while bears lean against the mountains and forests. Ziyan pulled her wings quickly through the curtain, and looked back frequently when her oolong entered the hole. The monkey grabs the food and the hand is cold, and the spirit dog fights and cleverly leans down. The hungry eagle catches the rabbit through the bones, and the quail suddenly crashes into the clouds.

  Please note that the eight great tricks have surfaced! There are eight moves in the Ba Xing tactics mentioned by Li Shuwen!

  Eight strokes one: the tiger catches the sheep.

  Eight Big Trick Two: Xiong is hard to rely on.

  Eight big trick three: Ziyan wears the curtain.

  Eight big tricks four: Oolong into the hole.

  Five of the eight major tricks: apes seize food.

  Eight Big Moves Six: Spirit Dog Fight.

  Seven of the eight big tricks: hungry eagle catches rabbits.

  Eight big tricks eight: quail sudden collision.

  In fact, the eight major moves are the moves derived from the eight shapes of the eight-jiquan, and the eight-meanings of the eight-jiquan are the actual combat experience. The eight-shapes are dragon, tiger, bear, monkey, swallow, dog, eagle, and quail.

  From the origin of Bajiquan, Bajiquan existed long before Li Shuwen, a martial artist in the Republic of China. Li Shuwen was not the founder of Bajiquan. The eight major moves he said were himself or his master. Comprehend it.

  The other eight moves mentioned on the Internet should also be understood by modern people in the whole routine of Bajiquan. The real eight major tricks were said by Li Shuwen of the Republic of China.
