About the translation...
Peter Kwok didn't provide to his
students the names of the movements for this form.
I did have one teacher who found this
form in book form in Chinese. He had it translated.
But has not passed it on.
I have a student who obtained and
provided to me all four Hua Chuan's in book form, in
Chinese. I found someone to translate this information for
me. Since none of my teachers had a reliable and consistent
translation, I am using my translated material to document
Number Three Series of Hua Boxing is a short one among
the twelve advanced series of Hua Boxing. The main
feature of it is: brisk, lively with close structure; there
are a lot of leap movements with great difficulty.
In addition to all kinds of “hand postures,” such as
fist, palm, hook, and all kinds of “stance postures,” such
as Bow Stance, Horse Stance, Squat (Tiger) Stance, Empty
Stance and Seated (Lotus) Stance; there are twelve “hand movements” on fist and palm, they
are: push, cross, hack, raise, hug, support, shake, tuck,
pick, plant, rush, carry; and six “step movements;” they are tread step, beat step,
walking step, reverse step, leap step and shovel step; and six “leg movements;” they are hook kicking, flying
kicking, turn legs, cross legs, pedal kicking and inside
crescent kicking as well as back sweep and front sweep.
The structure order of it almost makes leap movements as
the focus. There are five parts among the six which
are arranged with leap movements in different styles and
ways, some leap movements are even combined with several
In part one, after the tread and rush movement, three
leap movements include jump flying kick, stride and kicking
upward and leap like a swing lotus are connected and become
a movement called “five phoenixes flying together,” (it is
also called three flying movements).
In part two, after the reverse rush, the front sweep and
jump flying kick are connected to the movement which is
called “twist dragon and flying phoenix.”
In part three, after the leap movement – tornado kicking,
the movement of leap like a swing lotus will be connected
and following with support punch in horse stance and turn
In part four, after the movement of walking step left and
right with cloud hand and flying foot, a leap movement, jump
flying kick is arranged without any run-up and jump-up
In part five, no leap movement is arranged, but a
movement called “mount a horse” which is combined with a
beat step and a straddle leg is arranged. Then the
feature of brisk is not reduced.
In part six, after the movement of tread and rush, a
three fourths movement - "turning like a swing lotus" which
includes a full twisted body turning is arranged.
The characters of brisk and lively are featured because
the combination of leap and step and some quick movements
with this kind of structure order; at the same time, because
of these leap movements (some with condition of run-up and
jump –up, some with condition of jump-up but without run up,
some without any condition of jump-up and run-up, some
movements are to kick forward in the air(jump flying kick),
some are to kick backward in the air, ( stride and kicking
upward), some are to swing legs outward in the air(leap like
a swing lotus), some are to swing legs inward in the air
(tornado kicking), some are to turn around the body in the
air,etc), all these movements make a pretty high request to
the skills of take-off, speed and vacant. However,
just because of this point, the Number Three Series of Hua
Boxing owns a character of brisk and lively, and it provides
a good condition for the learners to train the speed,
sensitivity and accuracy and good quality to face any
There are a lot of difficult leap
movements in Number Three Series of Hua Boxing, in addition
to own a good leaping ability; you need to specialize in
leaping skills as well. I explain some brief
instructions in accordance with my experience in daily
practice. However, since my experience for it is not
deep enough, there must be some mistakes exist, I expect to
get some help and corrections from comrades who love martial
art as well.
