The hand forms in Chinese Kung Fu form the core of the training. First, the movement sequences are learned to develop the coordinative skills, especially the hand-eye coordination. Combining hand techniques and step work, combat-specific principles and concepts are identified and real combat situations are systematically mapped and interpreted. This is followed by review and revision of techniques to ensure a lifelong learning curve as a process of quality assurance and control.
The hand forms in Chinese Kung Fu are more than just pure movements. They form a philosophy and mindset that requires discipline, perseverance, concentration and mindfulness. They promote not only physical fitness, but also the mind and well-being.
Training the hand forms requires time, patience and dedication. It is a journey that offers new insights and knowledge with each step. The art is to automate the movements while paying attention to the fine details to perfect the techniques.
Whether you are a beginner or an advanced practitioner, the training of hand forms in Chinese Kung Fu is suitable for anyone who is willing to embark on a journey of self-discipline, self-control and self-development.
