Leaping, Jumping, Going, & Entering, Long Fist has all of these, Short Striking does not have these Body Methods. Rolling, Leaking, Raising, & Winding, Short Strike has all of these, Long Fist Striking does not have these Body Methods. Modern people cause boxing to be “one point at the ends of the Earth, & one point in the local corner.” Hands dance & feet trip, not knowing how by way of Qi one’s striving stops, as if you have not yet Crossed Hands.
That is, once in a while strike the opponent, one hand & one foot suddenly cross at once, seeking not to mutually assault. You’ll say the reason is Long Fist is inferior to Short Strike, hiding its inaccurate Hand Methods behind resentment, & not devotedly refining it. Not knowing this really isn’t Long Fist. Long Fist is long driving & big entering, horizontal thrusting & vertical crashing, with regard ms to the older words, because its power is greater, it isn’t an empty theory.
Short Strike is drawing near & fighting at close quarters. Adhering, Grabbing, Attaching, & Leaning pertain to it, the original system is one thing, the gong is not two principles. In a generation, many will make mistakes, what is special is to be the one that recognizes it.
