Kung Fu Hand Forms

Wushu Shaolin Kung Fu : Orange Belt is an amazing reference manual that continues where yellow belt dropped off. Students begin with the most basic and widely practiced preliminary Wushu routine known as Chuji Chang Quan(初级长拳) or the 4th level Chang Quan. After completing the elementary Wushu requirement students learn Da Tong Bi Quan (大通臂拳). As the first core routine in the Shaolin Temple Curriculum Tong Bi Quan is believed to have been developed by a Taoist Priest named Dong Cheng after observing some Yellow Gibbons interacting in the mountain slopes.

Northern Shaolin Kung Fu is renowned by true Kung Fu practitioners as an authentic style of traditional Chinese martial arts. Duan Da (少林短打), also known as Shaolin #6 translates into Short Strike and is the first set taught from the 10 Core Northern Shaolin routines. Shaolin #6 is also the most recognizable form of the 10 core routines because it is taught by many teachers throughout the globe. It has several high kicks, the famous double-toe kick, jumping tornado kick, and two low ground sweeps.

Kung Fu Weapons

Wushu Shaolin Kung Fu : Orange Belt also introduces students to the Elementary Level Wushu Spear combinations #1, #2, #3, #4, #5, #6, and #7. After completing all of the elementary spear combinations students begin learning the basic spear routine known as Chuji Qiang Shu (初级枪术). Once the Wushu weapon requirement is completed students may proceed to the Shaolin Compulsary Broadsword (少林刀). The final requirement is the Intermediate Wushu Staff routine known as Zhongji Gunshu (中级棍术). This routine is a complex form that serves as a basis for the advanced level cudgel.
