The Secrets of Phoenix Eye Fist Kung Fu
The Art of Chuka ShaolineBook - 2015
Master the terrifyingly effective Phoenix Eye Fist style of Chinese Kung Fu with this illustrated martial arts guide. The Secrets of Phoenix-Eye Fist Kung-Fu depicts an enormously potent art, also known as Chuka Shaolin, that does not depend on strength or size. Instead, it utilizes a special striking technique, the phoenix-eye fist, aimed at vital points on the opponent's body. Phoenix-Eye Fist Kung-Fu excels at close-range fighting-an area neglected in many other martial arts-and employs a variety of lightning-fast strikes and kicks. Due to its deadly efficacy, there is no sparring in Chuka Shaolin, but instead complex two-person practice forms are employed-both for empty-handed fighting and for fighting with weapons-in which the practitioners fight all-out, and are protected only by a precise knowledge of the form. With hundreds of clear photographs, The Secrets of Phoenix-Eye Fist Kung-Fu reveals: - The fundamental techniques of the empty-handed art - A complete breakdown of the two-person empty-hand practice forms - Detailed instruction in Chuka Shaolin pole fighting, including the practice forms - An overview of the other weapons used in Chuka Shaolin, including the sai, the twin knives, the spear, and the farmer's hoe - Special forms of Chi Kung designed to increase striking power,increase vitality, and aid in resisting and healing injuries
