Shaolin "Fan Tsi Eagle Claw" is a set of traditional Chinese kung fu fighting techniques. This type of Northern Kung Fu was developed and widely used in China. The traditional style of kung fu was used by the famous military General, Ngok Fei, to train his soldiers. This set of fighting techniques is mostly composed of the following: "Jau" (grab), "Da" (strike) , "Kum" (catch), "Na" (hold), "Fan Gun" (separate the tendons), "Cho Gwat" (dislocating the joints), "Dim Yuet" (strike precisely the pressure points), "Baai Hei" (stop the breathing) , "Sim Gin" (fast changing stances), and "Tun Noh" (Jump and take away). Traditional Eagle Claw is based on three (3) fundamental forms: Hahng Kuen Sahp Lo (walking fist 10 sections), Lin Kuen Ng Sahp Lo (combination fist 50 sections), and 108 Chin Na (joint locking techniques). All the techniques are very practical. (read more)
