The form presented in this book is a basic long fist set from the Northern Shaolin Long Fist system. The form itself is easy to learn, yet introduces the student to a large number of sophisticated practical applications. A careful study of the form reveals its rich content, including the following concepts: fist, palm, knee and kicking attacks, blocks and parries for various hand and foot attacks, defenses to grabbing attacks, throwing techniques, chin na (seize and control) techniques, simultaneous kick and hand strike, and simultaneous block and strike. This book is divided into two sections. The first section contains a full representation of the form as performed by renowned Master Karl Romain. The second section is a representation of various practical self-defense applications of the form. Each picture is accompanied by detailed explanatory text.
