The Bear system belongs to the Gen trigram, which is the youngest of the Yang trigrams. As such, it is very strong, but does not fight in a dominant manner. It is the art of snatching victory from defeat, attacking from a retreat, or fooling an opponent by being seemingly simple. It is ideally suited for people who are strong, large in frame (though not necessarily in height) or stocky/heavy and are capable of using their body weight to advantage. A generalization is that the Bear uses a heavy, rotating force to neutralize the opponent while attacking from an unexpected direction.
The Association for Traditional Studies mission statement is to preserve, document, and disseminate China’s traditional knowledge. Now actively in the dissemination phase, our mission to share authentic knowledge with practitioners around the globe is being fulfilled by our unprecedented free online library of educational videos. While every video is free, the advertisements and donations from people like you help us to continue paying royalties to the practitioners and the families of the practitioners we have documented for over 20 years in China. If you enjoy these videos, please make a tax deductible contribution by clicking Donate above. No matter how large our small, every donation supports our work, and the work of great practitioners of the arts. We thank you for your support!YouTube responded to TubePress with an HTTP 410 - No longer available
