Fist forms or empty hand forms, forms without weapons are a sequence of moves that teach techniques such as striking grappling and more importantly stance work.Learning these forms enables a Choy Lee Fut practitioner to fully utilise all power generated. This happens by using; stancework for stability, the knees, waist and shoulders for power, arms and legs to attack defend and lock, which coordinates the body into one effective unit.
The Choy Lee Fut forms were developed by Chan Heung over 200 years ago. These forms have been taught the same way they have been taught in the past. The moves and sequences still remain the same till this day.
