    Style: Emei Quan
    Description: Emei is the name of one of the four major Buddhist mountains (the others being Wutai, Putuo, and Jiuhua).

    Emei is also one of the major martial mountains, being located just behind Song Mountain (Shaolin) and Wudang Mountain. Just like these other mountains, a wide range of kung fu styles have descended from this venerated sacred place.

    Since the Emei mountain range is renowned for its abundant wildlife, it comes as no surprise that Emei Quan is famous for its animal styles, most particularly monkey style and its unique southern styles.

    Low stable stances with little hopping are characteristic of this style. Jumps are executed very lightly and quickly and its movements are very diverse. Many of its most lethal techniques are derived from the use of the wrist.

    A cite of a cite site

    You do realize that Shaolin Wolf cited that from an article I wrote in our Jan 2000 issue. Scroll to the bottom of Shaolin Wolf and you'll see our citation. Get to the real source If you want to find our more about Emei (aka O-mei) check out our O-mei special Sep 2000 or our line of O-mei videos.

    Yeah, and Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming wrote a book on Emei Baguazhang as well as produced 3 tapes covering the book. Sadly, Martial Arts Mart only has Tape 1 and Tape 2 of the series.

    I know that, I was simply doing plugs to Yang's stuff on Martial Arts Mart, line Gene does, in case someone buys stuff. Plus Martial Arts Mart discounts some stuff, including YJM material so it is cheaper.
