Pikua Chuan is one of the least recognitioned styles in Kung Fu. Few people outside of China have learned this powerful system. According to certain records, the style originated in the district of Chang, within the Province of Hou Pei (Hebei), practiced especially in the region of Lau Tan. One of the most respected exports of this system is none other than one of Master Su’s teacher, the late Grand Master Liu Yuen Chiao.
This style combines the characteristics of the Gibbon, the long arms of the Monkey and the strong wings of the Eagle. An ancient system, Pikua Chuan has movements designed exclusively for combat which required long range strokes, thus allowing the practitioner to react immediately at the first sign of attack. The energy is concentrated in the waist and then is transmitted rapidly to the arms and legs.
