Tien Shan Pai Lineage
Tien Shan Pai is a northern style which originated in the Tien Shan mountains of northwestern China. It is well known in Taiwan as an effective fighting style. At the same time, it also contains graceful empty-hand and weapons forms stressing rhythm and "ing shou"--the demonstration of power accentuated by solid thuds made by the hands. Tien Shan Pai self-defense is characterized by attacks from the side coupled with multiple blocks, so that if one block fails, the second can cover. Footwork is considered essential to countering attacks; Tien Shan Pai focuses on low, steady steps to the side, along with swift "hidden" steps to trick the opponent.
