kino mutai vs eagle claw tai chi
In the debate over which style is best, you may find many people using the same term to refer to two systems: Eagle Claw and Kino Mutai. Both systems practice the same physical exercises and have similar goals. However, they are not the same. Learn the differences between each style and determine which one is right for you. This article will cover both styles.
The history of the Eagle Claw is not as clear. Although it has its roots in the ancient Chinese martial arts of the Shaolin Temple, the early practitioners of the art were actually trained in the military, and this is how the tradition developed. However, once it was adopted into the Chinese martial arts, it became a family tradition, passed on through generations. With the advent of public martial arts schools, its history lost much of its secrecy.
kino mutai vs mizong chuan
The fundamentals of both types of kung fu vary slightly, but they both rely on continuous biting. A continuous bite not only inflicts pain and injury, it can also cut an opponent’s arteries and cause severe bleeding. The preferred target areas for Kina Mutai practitioners are the face, neck, ear, and groin. The nipple and latissimus dorsi muscle are also popular targets, but many practitioners prefer to use them for a variety of reasons.
Kina Mutai practitioners should begin by learning some fundamental principles. One of these principles is the proper way to bite. A normal person will bite too hard in one bite, but a proper Kina Mutai bite involves applying pressure to the opponent’s incisors and repeating the circular ripping of flesh. If a single small bite is performed incorrectly, the damage caused will be considerable.

Hong Kong-born martial arts actor Jackie Chan studied hapkido under Grandmaster Jin Pal Kim.

He was also the instructor of Olympic boxer Andrew Maynard, and Washington Redskin linebacker Ken Harvey.
