  • Abridged Zhang San Feng Set, the Bagua, Wuxing and Techniques.

    Hi Folks, just for fun I though I would start a thread on Wudang Kung Fu and the Abridged Zhang San feng Set.

    We are blessed in our school to have knowledge of the 13 Techniques, 5 Wuxing or Elements and 8 Bagua.

    My question to you is, how then do we apply them to the individual patterns?

    For Example lets take one of the patterns from the Abridged Zhang San Feng Set, ‘Cosmos First Emerges’.

    Pattern = ‘Cosmos First Emerges’
    Wuxing / Element = Water
    Technique = Lie, or Spread
    Bagua = Kan

    Please correct me if I’m wrong on any of the above, I’m still getting to grips with it myself.

    The Abridged Patterns are:
    1 Two Aspects of Yin-Yang
    2 Nebula Evolving Round
    3 Cosmos First Emerges
    4 Gentle Breeze through Sleeves
    5 Play the Lute
    6 Wide Horse Charges at Stable
    7 Receive Wind Push Door
    8 Big Boss Removes Helmet
    9 Lovely Horse Flying Kick
    10 Golden Eagle Spreads Wings
    11 White Crane Flaps Wings
    12 Black Bear Tests Claws
    13 Change Flower Plant Wood
    14 Garment Receives Flowing Breeze
    15 Cosmos Returns to One
    16 Chi Flow

    So pick one and fill in the gaps.

    looking forward to all responses

    Have Fun,

    Mmmm, fellow Wahnamer's, due to lack of response, I'm guessing that very few people know the Zhang San Feng patterns, the post is not clear and limited, or it has past students that the Bagua, Wuxing and 13 Techniques are not so well known!

    Maybe extending the limited selection to all forms and patterns of the Wahnam arts may engage a wider audience!

    So how then would one apply the any of 13 Techniques, 5 Wuxing or Elements and 8 Bagua. to an individual Tajiquan or Kung Fu pattern?
