SAFE-BODY CANNON OR AN SHEN PAO
The two fundamental sparring set in Xingyiquan are Wu Hua Pao or Five-Flower Cannon and An Shen Pao or Safe-Body Cannon, which manifest the combat applications of Five-Element Continuous Fist and 12 Animal-Form continuous Fist respectively. The Safe-Body Cannon shown above is reproduced from YouTube.
We shall have our Shaolin Wahnam version which will improve on this one by
- having all the five fundamental fists represented
- introducing counters against typical attacks in today’s free sparring
- arranging our attack in ways to gain tactical advantages
