    White Crane Eye Attacks

    I have a few questions regarding Southern White Crane and how they do eye attacks. I have alittle bit of background in Wing Chun, so I am familiar with moves like Biu Jee, which I would describe as a "poke" with a finger(s).

    I have heard mention elsewhere of White Crane finger flicking type motions, using more than one finger, like in a fan spread (mimicking the White Crane wings?), is this accurate? So, instead of it being a linear poke, it uses more spread fingers, backfinger or fanning type motions...obviously with a good amount of Fa Jing. Any idea what the Cantonese name for such a move would be?

    I enjoy reading about and researching White Crane because of its close association with other arts from south China, but there is definitely not as much out there as compared to Wing Chun, etc.

    Thanks

    Don't know the White Crane terminology, but the general concept is called Mut Mei - Brush Eyebrow.

    The concept of attacking the eyes in White crane is as described, a "brushing style" ... also the flicking aspect and the fingers are splayed as this makes a stronger spear-hand striking weapon.

    Another form of attack to the eyes in White Crane would be to palm heel directly to the eyes themselves which is a vascular style of attack.
