SHAOLIN HAND FORMS

Shaolin Kung Fu

Grandmaster Wong demonstrating the Monkey Paws


While many other martial arts use only the fist and the palm for their hand techniques, Shaolin Kungfu uses many hand-forms. Various types of fists as well as the Tiger Claw, the Dragon Hand Form, the Crane Beak, the Praying Mantis Hand and the Monkey Paw are shown. Different hand forms are used because they are particularly useful for particular targets.

Please note: you can download the video clips onto your own computer and view them at your leisure. Place your computer pointer at a relevant picture or link, and right click. Choose “Save Target As”. Select the directory or sub-directory where you wish to keep the video clip. Click “Save”.
