historical origin

It is a northern boxing. According to legend, Zhao Yican, the Taiping Army general, left the fist in Raoyang, Hebei Province, when he lived in seclusion. Punching feet is a kind of boxing which is gradually enriched and perfected on the basis of eight diamond frames, eight diamond beats and "Yuhuanbu" techniques. Because they are good at legs, they are praised as the "outstanding northern legs" by later generations.

The full name of "Jiufan imperial step mandarin ducks hang in a series of suspended poking feet". This fist is penny-for-penny and martial arts trip. Its routine changes are evolved from eight basic potentials. "Jiufan" means that there are nine ways for Wen and Wu to travel, and "imperial step" is a typical footwork for poking feet, while "hooking up and linking up" means that all forces are attacked or defended, linked and connected. Pointing feet often take false steps to stand, move hand and foot together, and force feet hanging, so it is known as "suspension", and when attacking, left and right exchange, into a pair of spouses and alias "duck feet". Later generations took "martial Arts trip" as leg work, and took turning boxing as the main body to melt into a furnace and formed "poking foot turning over".

Distribution: Mainly spread in Hebei, Tianjin, Beijing, Northeast China and other places, there are also practitioners in the south.
