Liu Da Kai are a set of methods for training explosive power in Bajiquan.

 Name

Liu Da Kai means ”six big openings” or six main methods to enter into close combat by opening the doors of an opponent. Doors (or gates) represent the opponents defence, created by their hands, which practitioners of Bajiquan aim to open or crash through (hence 開門 "KaiMen" - meaning "open-gate" or "gate opening" - in 開門八極拳 KaiMen Bajiquan).[1]

According to the Wu Family, these "openings" refer more specifically to six types of "fundamental forces" and not techniques.[2]

History

Huo Family Bajiquan features a modified version of the Liu Da Kai known as Ba Da Kai (八大開), created when Huo DianGe added two additional techniques: Chao Yang Shou (朝阳手 Sun Facing Hands) and Ba Wang Zhe Jiang (霸王折缰 King takes weight) to the set.

The Form

The six movements vary between different systems and so some common interpretations are:[2]

Name English Description
Ding 顶 Thrusting/Goring Going forward like a bull. Defending and advancing at the same time. Going through the door with a pushing or charging action.
Bao 抱 Gathering/Embracing Opening the door with a sideways movement as if hugging the opponent.
Dan 单 Bouncing/Whipping Like carrying two buckets of water on a stick supported on your shoulders. The strong downwards wave motion that comes from the weight of the water and the elasticity of the stick. Opening the door with a downwards movement.

Applications

Five, on the six major openings

       Six Dakai is the Bajiquan stunt, which means opening the door first and then entering the move. It is all the offensive and defensive moves. Everyone who fights with the enemy will not leave this technique. The six major openings are "top, hug, single, lift, carry, and wrap", but they are not designated. The strokes are changing, and they are recruited when they step down. The waist, hip, and footwork must be connected when using strokes. The enemy has no opportunity to attack, the offense and defense are rigorous, the good attacker does not know what he is defending, and the good defender does not know what he is going to attack. The advance and retreat are the same. Advance is the middle rider, while parrying, dodge, escaping, and moving are the lower riders.

(1) Six opening songs:

One hits the top elbow and flips left and right; the second hits the elbow and rushes forward; the three lifts and hangs together to practice single-yang hitting; it wraps around the body step by step; flips the top elbow and stands in the middle;

(2) Six major opening exercises: practicing the six major openings is based on the three-reliance three-in-one protruding crotch. The crotch is a horizontal force, which cannot be moved away from the crotch. The move is based on the pile and step. If the foundation is not strong, the move is useless. When practicing, each move is a trip, and it can be practiced alone or in combination. The master must have an opponent to disassemble the move before it can be used. Strive forward boldly, rush forward with sudden force, push forward to keep up with the hind foot, forehand to be strong, and to bring the hip step, the back elbow force to urge the forehand, loosen the shoulders and loosen the hips, and the shoulders and hips are closed. The knee can cure the enemy. If you practice in this way, it will be handy.

(3) Six major opening usages:

Top: Use four styles of flutter, sling, hanging, and cover when making moves. For medium and high styles, use sling, hang, and short styles.

Hugging: Use support, hug, stroke, cover your eyes and hands, squeeze your hands in when you hold your elbows, it is best to squeeze in with your elbows. , And there is no support.

Odds: Doubles are not singles, only one hand and one foot are used to defend against the enemy.

Lifting: This is the trick used to enter the body. It is an independent trick. When the enemy enters my body, he climbs his shoulders with his hands, presses his chest, lifts his knees and hits the enemy's crotch, combines up and down, and smashes and lifts his knees.

Carrying: Carrying is an independent move, three-reliance and three-in-one is a carry-back, not relying on or not, it is a sling, and the move does not leave the crotch.

Entangling: You can quickly squeeze in with your hands when you encounter an enemy. You can use a small entangling close to your body, and a large entangling for stepping up. It can also be accompanied by an elbow and Chaoyang hand.

(4) Six exercises for opening moves:

The six major openings are based on the three-reliance and three-in-one, the hips are connected together, the hips are the horizontal force, and the sudden is the impulsive force. There is a saying: the move does not leave the hips, and the move is based on piles. If the foundation is not solid, the move is useless. The six major open elbows, crotch wrapping, elbow topping, dusting, five strokes together with stubbornness, morning hand, cross wrapping, stepping, crotch beating and other tricks are all first-line urgency. , If the enemy is occupied, we will lose. When using the strategy, you can see that the enemy has a sudden attack that can be attacked. It is the most difficult to appear when you make a move. If you appear, it is easy to take advantage of the opportunity for change. Each stroke of the six major opening exercises can be single or mixed. After the six majors open singles and practice proficiency, you must have opponents to feed the moves to be useful, otherwise it will be difficult to use when facing the enemy. Practicing the six major openings must be practiced to move forward, to boldly move forward, so also to practice sudden force. Only with bold forward thrust, the hind foot can follow the step, the front hand is prominent, and the thrust is with hip strength, only the big step forward, the face straight forward, can you follow the back step, the back elbow hair Push the front shoulders, loosen the shoulders, loosen the hips to close the knees, and close the knees to take a step.

Hold the elbows as a move: use props, floor, and strokes and then add eye-hands, timing as a move, or when using it, there are several styles of lifting, hanging, hanging, and covering. In the case of Chinese high style, it is lift and hang, and in short style it is point. Beating, dusting, throwing, smashing, enemy squatting short pose, I progress behind, squeeze it with hip force or smash it, pick it up, and do not touch the opponent's hand to prevent the enemy from moving and clasping. The crotch is an independent move, three reliance on the crotch, and the triple relies on the crotch.

Hitting the elbows is the best way to get your hands out, so you can prevent changes. Don't retract the back hand too early, otherwise, the momentum will be insufficient, and naturally there will be no hip strength, and the supporting force will be strong.

Ti is close to the body, the trick used is, when the opponent gets in, I climb on his shoulders with both hands, or press his chest to lift the knees, using the fastest method, squeeze with both hands and then stalk, lift hard and soft lift The difference is that the hard mention is the use of the mention, and the soft mention is actually a twist.

Chaoyang also used his hands to squeeze and make progress.
