    Wow ! This is very cool . I wish to achieve this level:)

    That is correct.

    That is correct.

    To achieve a Phoenix eye at a pragmatic stage, one must first condition the P/E via push-ups and other such exercises regularly.

    in this way we use …
    in this way we use more than just limbs to strike, we generate power through the use of our whole bodies bringing the arms forward. there is greater stability with the body weight behind the strike aswell as protection of vital organs. by bringing the hips squaring and “closing” we also protect our groin area from strikes. the body should be supple and as relaxed as possible. there should only be brief tension at the point of contact, followed by a snapping retraction. please propagate pak mei!

    thats most …
    thats most definitely correct tigon! great pak mei knowledge. the elbows are generally kept in and pointed down, and that is especially the case at the point of impact with the phoenix-eye fist (in my pak mei branch anyhow). the power comes from the waist (squaring or closing the hips) and the sinking (monkey chest, tiger back) where by the abdominals contract and the shoulders come forward (although kept still low). the result should be the “round shape” of the back and a concave upper body.

    In regards to the …
    In regards to the elbow it is most likely the angle in which the video was taken. As well this video is showing only a static position demonstrating short piercing power.

    Dynamically (ie. in motion), Bak Mei power comes from the hips/waist and shoulders. Please see my small stone lion form video clip for more.

    Thank you for your comments. Regards.

    Pardon me for …
    Pardon me for asking sifu, but you lookas if you’re hyperextending the elbow a bit there. Is that how bak mei is traditionally done, or could it be just the angle of camera making it seem that way? I’m a karate man so I’m not too inclined with the Chinese Arts, much respect to all styles though. Just wondering.

    you dont need to …
    you dont need to callus your body thats a myth and is unnatractive. there is no need in modern day times to callus for defense. thats just dumb, if you get attacked on the streets you can easily do without a callus knuckle to punch with. its personal choice for you then.

    nice. I made the mistake of showing a friends girlfriend that fist and an application to the bicep….little regret as she punched me barley when i was lying down in our dorm room and made my arm go numb for minutes. girlfriend knows the fist too, she does my lower back sometimes and me off and i keep telling her ” its not to play with, you can hurt somone bad”

    The “little lion” …
    The “little lion” set was acturally named in memory of Sifu Sek who passed this set to Cheung Lai Chung. The “si” stands for teacher, not lion. You had weak straight punches on the set, did not use much of your shoulder, the back, or your waist then. You have come a long way.

    I have looked at the few videos you posted. I am really impressed with the work you put in, better than 99% of all White Eye Brow videos posted. Who is your Sifu and what generation are you? Got a set to show?
    I am sixth generation, from Sifu Lai Bing Hung and Chan 15.

    Your statement in …
    Your statement in regards to the unrealistic body feel is true. However, one thing with the boards, is it will condition the phoenix eye (ie. give you that big callus on the knuckle) faster as the boards are a harder/denser material. If your knuckle can withstand a hard surface, it will have no problem on the human body.

    Great input, thanks.

    we hit duck taped phone books, instead of breaking boards…..breaking boards gives you a feel that is unrealistic, compared to hitting something blunt that resembles body……..try it, you’ll see difference, especially if you have good internal training :)
