八反者, 與尋常拳家不同, 反其道而行之, 獨到專具之法也。

The Eight Reverses are distinct from ordinary boxing schools, they act in a diametrically opposite way, only by becoming expert can you possess this method. 

第一反/The First Reverse: 

進步先進前步, 退步先退后步。

Advance Step first advances the front step, Retreat Step first withdraws the rear step. 

第二反/The Second Reverse: 

入則直步, 出則彎步, 跨則横步, 回則倒步。

Enter with a Straight Step, go out with a Cuved Step, stride with a Lateral Step, return with an Inverting Step. 

第三反/The Third Reverse: 

人則五花八門, 我則以靜待動。

People use Five Flowers & Eight Gates, I use Use Stillness to Wait for Movement. 

第四反/The Fourth Reverse: 

人則拳打腳踢, 我則穿掌掩肘。

People use Fist Strikes & Leg Lifts, I use Penetrating Palm & Covering Elbow. 

第五反/The Fifth Reverse: 

人則使梢擊人, 我則使梢先使根。

People usually use the tip to strike a person, I use To Use the Tip First Use the Root.  

第六反/The Sixth Reverse: 

人則用拳變之掌, 我則用直伸出掌。

People usually apply Fist Variations as their Palms, I then apply Straight Extending Palm. 

第七反/The Seventh Reverse: 

人則回拳回身方能對后, 我則動步便對八方。

People use Circling Fist & Returning Body to face the rear, I use Moving Steps to quickly face the Eight Directions. 

第八反/The Eighth Reverse: 

人則挺身直進, 我則掌到步随。

People use Upright Body Straight Advancing, I use the Palms Go & the Steps Follow.
