  • First, the eye method is special. “Live monkey” practice boxing look around, only turn the head, not turn the eyes.

Therefore, it seems that the head moves, but the body moves, a movement of the whole movement, the force is complete. Blink eyelids do not move eyebrows, because the eyebrows move eyes are closed. Monkeys do not close their eyes. When boxing eyebrows are flying is a big taboo in boxing, eyes closed more does not meet the requirements of the actual battle.

Crooked walk, seemingly crooked, but in fact, the two legs take turns to force, a real and a virtual, left crooked then left real, the body center line to the left, the right leg all virtual; right down then right real, the body center line to the right, the left leg all virtual. Therefore, it seems to be crooked, but in fact, there is a right in the crooked, fallen but not fallen.
