    Bak Mei vs Wing Chun Theories

    Hi,
    what's are the major essential theories and concepts in Bak Mei kung fu.

    What are the differences and similarities between Bak Mei and wing chun in terms of theories and applications.

    Does Bak Mei also have the 8 angles of attack and 8 directional footwork.

    I remember reading the legends of kung fu article in an issue of black belt magazine about how Bak Mei practioners inhale when striking to create compression like a balloon, when every other style exhale. Can someone explain how this works and the logic behind it.

    Thanks
    kung fu fighter

    pak mei inhales and exhales depending on the technique.

    pak mei doesnt stick.

    pakmei uses triangle footwork, for trapping and uprooting.
    charging and chasing steps.

    Many pak mei deflections are actually attacks.

    pak mei has centerline but mainly utilises angular attacks at a 45 degrees to attack the centerline.

    pak mei has similiar kicking.
    There is no technique that speed cannot defeat......

    Hi tiger on duty,

    pak mei inhales and exhales depending on the technique.

    so does wing chun.

    pak mei doesnt stick.

    wing chun has both sticking as well as non sticking.

    pakmei uses triangle footwork, for trapping and uprooting.
    charging and chasing steps.

    So does wing chun.

    Many pak mei deflections are actually attacks.

    The deflections in wing chun can be used softly to absorb or to distroy the opponent's bridges.

    pak mei has centerline but mainly utilises angular attacks at a 45 degrees to attack the centerline.

    So does wing chun.

    Can you give some examples of these as well as other differences.

    the simple heart punch, where the right fist strikes the sternum or solar plexus, the left does a whipping block to deflect and break the wrist of the attacker or at least cause some nerve damage or severe pain.
    this is a centerline attack.

    use the same technique but step to the right of the left punch, pivot and whipping block and punch to the head or ribs(floating ribs) or neck.
    this is a angular use of the centerline technique.
    There is no technique that speed cannot defeat......
