Shaolin Tantui

Grandmaster Wong demonstrates the three harmonies of legs, body and hands

Many of our students are amazed that they could learn kungfu sets from us very quickly. A main reason is that we place great emphasis on the basics. Once we perform the basics well, we can learn any patterns quickly. It is like when you can type well, you can type any documents.

The basics of the patterns are the three harmonies, a term sometimes mentioned but seldom understood. Kungfu classics often explain the three harmonies as the feet harmonize with the body, the body harmonizes with the hands, and the hands harmonize with the feet. As usually the case in the kungfu classics, the explanation was not meant for public consumption but as a reminder for practitioners who had gone through the the three harmonies themselves
