Monkey Kung Fu is known for its tumbling and rolling techniques, its agile footwork and its deadly accuracy.
Monkeys in the wild have to fight against enemies many times their size. They try to run away if possible. If not, they never assume they can take out their opponent in a first blow in any case. Monkey kung fu is therefore about being clever and intelligent. To fight well, think like a monkey and adopt its mannerisms to outwit your opponent in a fight.
There are four main sects of Monkey Kung Fu today - The Northern Monkey Style, Southern Monkey Style, the Wushu Monkey Style as well as the Tai Sheng Pek Kwar School.
Monkey Kung Fu in Mainland China is traditionally divided between the Northern and Southern Styles, with Wushu Practitioners adopting the style for performances. The Tai Sheng School also has a notable following, especially overseas.
Although both share the same outward mannerisms of a monkey, Northern Style Monkey fighters emphasize long range attacks and intricate patterns of movement. Southern Style Monkey fighters emphasize close range and quick continuous attacks.
Our eBook contains an illustrated guide to the Northern Style Monkey Kung Fu Hou Quan Form (Monkey Fist), together with notes as to its concepts and applications. It also comes with an illustrated guide to the background concepts of Monkey Kung Fu.
Hou Quan (meaning "Monkey Fist" in Mandarin Chinese) is a form of the Northern Monkey sect based in Sichuan Province, China, and is a beginner to intermediate routine that teaches the major skills of Northern Monkey Kung Fu.
