Chang Quan means Long Fist in English. The Chang Quan system is a fast-moving kung fu style that relies on extended arm movements and is famous for its arsenal of deadly kicks that can hit any target at will.
Chang Quan is a broad term used to describe a group of Chinese martial arts systems that rely on extended and fast, dynamic movement to attack and defend. Chang Quan literally means Long Fist in Chinese. Long is strictly relative - Unlike wrestling or short range styles such as Wing Chun, the aim of Chang Quan is to take the fight to the enemy and keep them away from your own vital targets.
Chang Quan has its origins1,000 years ago in the Song Dynasty where it was reputedly created by its First Emperor, Tai Zu. During this time, Chang Quan has spread throughout China and is widely practiced by common folk as an easy to learn yet powerful self defense system.
Chang Quan believes in bold and honest movements that has given inspiration to a number of other kung fu styles such as Shaolin and Hung Gar. The Chang Quan fighter makes relentless spirited attacks that contain a flurry of deadly strikes to overwhelm his opponent.
Tan Tui means Springing Leg in Chinese and is one of the beginner level sets of Chang Quan Kung Fu. The word Tan shares the same pronunciation as "bullet” in Chinese, and the style can therefore also be likened to kicks firing like bullets.
The set comprises of 10 routines known as "roads”. There is also an expanded version consisting of 12 roads. The 10 Roads version is presented here. The emphasis of the 10 Roads is on kicking high and continuously so as to overwhelm the opponent.
The set is a well known entry level set for many Northern Chinese Kung Fu systems. While it exists on its own as a legitimate style, it is also a core form incorporated into many other styles such as Chang Quan and Shaolin Kung Fu. Shaolin has its own Tan Tui set that comprises of 12 routines.
