... we can make a reasonable deduction by considering this logical proposition: Having ample leisure to develop and implement exercise therapies suggests that defensive systems of hand-to-hand combat were already being practiced.

For instructors of non-sport martial training, this Master's Manual details 340 duan chuan fa or "Short Fist" extremely aggressive and terminal close range fighting techniques, maneuvers and strategies against specific aggressions. As this is oriented toward seasoned instructors, no photos are included, nor are they necessary with the detailed written directions. This is not "self defense" material: that is not its genesis and it is patently inappropriate for those who do not train seriously.The techniques present combinations of throws, locks, breaks, holds, chops, kicks, punches and other strikes arranged in 11 levels of belt ranks up to 5th Black, as presently used in the Chuan Fa Kenpo system. Each technique will easily suggest 10 optional and equally effective maneuvers, i.e. these are "seeds" for dynamic, adaptive responses. There has been a deliberate attempt in the Manual's layout to allow room for you to leave tracks as you modify these seminal maneuvers.
