Thread: Mantis Glossary of Terminology

  1. #16
    I saw this thread and decided to add some of the details I know. Below are some of the concepts for 7*PM. The romanizations for everything are Yale Cantonese as I find it the easiest to maintain correct pronunciation. Cantonese also stays true to the 7*'s Hong Kong lineage.

    IMPORTANT: Do not read too much into the English translations. I wrote them in a manner that would be easiest for me to remember what they are, but they are not fully encompassing of the principle they describe. I truly feel that in order to completely describe the principle you'd need to write pages of text!

    9 - 撲手而入手 - Pok Su Yh Yahp Su - Pressing downward and advance
    10 - 挑手而入手 - Tu Su Yh Yahp Su - Lifting and advance
    11 - 開手而叠手 - Ho Su Yh Dihp Su - Stacking the arms
    12 - 粘手而破手 - Jm Su Yh Po Su - Stick to and break the attack (Chin Na)

    It has been some time and no one added the translations... I needed the translations and got them at the previously mentioned page www.authentickungfu.com. No work from my side except for Pinyin for those who can't read characters and copying the stuff together. I was unable to read the cantonese terms but it was at least easy to map them to the correct characters.

    1.抅 ju1 Hook
    2.搂 lou3 Grapple
    3.采 cai3 Pull
    4.挂 gua4 Block
    5.刁 diao1 Intercept
    6.崩 beng1 Chop
    7.粘 zhan1 Contact
    8.黏 nian2 Cling
    9.贴 tie1 Tag
    10.靠 kao4 Lean
    11.闪 shan3 Dodge
    12.腾挪 teng2 nuo2 Bounce
    13.挫 cuo4 Dent
    14.统 tong3 Straight Forward
    15.挑 tiao1 Ward Off
    16.封 feng1 Grab
    17.补 bu3 Supplement
    18.圈 quan1 Circle
    19.势劈 shi4 pi1 Powerful Chop
    20.缠 chan2 Wrap
    21.偷 tou1 Filch
    22.漏 lou4 Slip
    23.翻 fan1 Flutter
    24.顶 ding3 Prop
    25.榜 bang3 Topple
    26.碎 sui4 Sieze
    27.捋 l3 Strike
    28.提 ti2 Hang
    29.弹 tan2 Spring
    30.脱 tuo1 Cast Off
    31.楸 qiu1 Sprout

    I'm still in search for the characters to the rest of the information provided on authentickungfu.com. Some of the Cantonese (it is Cantonese, isn't it?) is so hard to understand that I can't think of a Mandarin character that could sound alike. And the Cantonese romanization also doesn't seem to be standardized. If I copy the stuff from there to an online Cantonese dictionary, it does not necessarily spit out a translation...

    Did anyone translate the stuff there to characters and could provide the information?
