Long Fist (长拳 (simplified)/長拳 (traditional) Zhǎngquán?, Romanized as "Chángquán") is a general term for northern Chinese external martial arts. As an external or "hard" technique, Long Fist focuses on the use of physical strength and agility as opposed to breath control and leverage. Long Fist is characterized by fully extended, aggressive strikes using large circular motion to improve mobility, making it a long range fighting style at first glance. Advanced study incorporates joint locks and throws in its forms.
Long Fist is well known for its impressive acrobatic kicks that require great flexibility and athleticism to perform.
