• The seven stars:
1. hands, 2. feet, 3. elbows. 4. knees,
5. shoulders, 6. thighs, 7. head.
• The three fronts:
1. eyes, 2.hands, 3. legs.
• The waist plays a vital role in the art of Gung Fu.
Front Bend, Side Bend, Back Bend.
• Leg training:
The legs are much more powerful and have a longer reach than the hands.
The whole balance is involved.

• The blocking and striking should be one continuous action.
