Our BP system is very sophisticated and layered in it's approach to developing skill and power. Each level builds upon the last but can also effectively stand alone as a system in itself. Level three for example develops a very destructive ging that has a pushing and centrifugal type of force.
The meditations develop the inner force. The stillness or yin state manifests yang. Our meditations have special sequences that activate a condition within the body conducive to accumulate, circulate and store energy in a specific way. Level three develops power that is used for our system of six directional elbow fighting.
There are not many Kung Fu systems that include elbow fighting as a system in itself in this way. We have a saying that 'Palms beat hands, elbows beat palms'. As as student progresses the body is developed and changed and the style of the individual begins to manifest. There is no 'Burning Palm' style. Burning Palm system unlocks someones potential and once the body is developed the practitioners own style emerges.
The physical aspect of our elbow training not only develop the body to issue power but it has a very healing impact on the spine and body structure. Predominately it's a close range fighting method but can and has been used by my Sifu long range in real combat. The flexibility and torque developed are devastating and when combined with the power generated from the nei gong for this level it's a deadly art. No wonder this was once hidden knowledge.
