Pak Mei Cha Hua Shi Zi Quan Passed down by Zeng Huibo

Pak Mei Cha Hua Shi Zi Quan Passed down by Zeng Huibo
    Zeng Huibo was a famous boxer taught by Master Zhang Liquan in Guangzhou during the period of the Republic of China. It was said that Zeng Huibo once came to Zhang Liquan for advice. Being deeply shocked by the power of Zhang Liquan's Pak Mei Kung-fu, he hence became one of Zhang's disciples in learning it. He had been also teaching boxing skills having got a great reputation in Guangzhou. Another famous boxer named Lu Xuan had also been one of the disciples of Zeng Huibo then.
    I like Chinese Kun-fu very much persistently all through and eager to learn practical Kung-fu skills in protecting myself now and then. In 1960, I was lucky to meet Master Lu Xuan and further respecting him as my teacher to learn Pak Mei Quan (white eyebrows boxing) as well as some San Shou (free fighting) skills by a very accidental opportunity. During that period, Master Lu Xuan usually went to Li Wan Lake Park discussing something about Kung-fu skills and practicing with his friends. As he had always fought against the evils for the puny, he had got a byname called "Hou Ye (monkey uncle)" vividly describing the great diversity and the high speed in his playing Pak Mei Quan in those real fighting.
    Master Lu Xuan was already in his fifties when I followed him learning Kung-fu. He had a great passion and never felt tired or impatient in teaching me hand to hand by him but, it is a pity that neither had I a weak savvy to understand his Kung-fu skills deeply nor to play the Quan well enough. I feel ashamed of it.
    Hereinafter I would like to give you a brief introduction to Cha Hua Shi Zi Quan, it is one of the styles of Pak Mei Quan passed down by Master Lu Xuan.
I have been learning Pak Mei Quan for many years, having realized that it is one of Nei Jia Quan (interior Kung-fu) styles focusing on exercising one's Jin (tendon), Gu (bones), Qi (interior strength and breathing), Jing (vigor), Qi (inner energy) and Shen (spirit). It takes the most prominent characteristic of animals in body shaping demanding having Xiong Yao (bear's waist), Hu Bei (tiger's back), Yuan Bi (ape's arm), Pao Tou (panther's head) requiring Chen Zheng (lower down your elbow), Chui Bi (droop your arm) and walking San Jiao Qian Yang Ma (walks in triangle pliers-ram- horse steps). When you are attacking, take Kylin Da Jian Bu (kylin hitting in arrow-like stepping) and form Hu Bu (tiger steps) with Tan Yao (spreading waist), then take Po Bu (compelled step).That is the so called "Bai Wen Bai Zhe (hundred times moving forward and hundred times turning over), Po Bu Nan Fang (hard for your rival to defend your compelled steps)". Regarding its Shou Fa (hand techniques) and Gong Fa (Kung-fu training skills), we have got Duan Qiao (short bridge), Ban Bian Qiao (half of the bridge) ,Cun Jing (inch strength), Su Jing (rapid strength) and Liu Jing (six strength). In the time of real fighting, you should always occupy the advantaged situation by following the principle of "Bu Ding Bu Ba (neither T-shape nor toe-outward), keep still in case your opponent does not move and send out your force in hitting in advance when your opponent is about to be attacking."
