Bai Mei (White Eyebrows) Wu Xing (Five Elements) Pole
    The school of Bai Mei (White Eyebrows) Quan (Boxing) focuses on the practical use of one's strength in essence. It is famous especially for fierce strike. Bai Mei Pole is basically the same with its Quan.
    There are two series of Bai Mei Pole. The primary one is Da Zhen Pole (A series with double-headed pole). Now we introduce the advanced one, Wu Xing (Five Elements) Zhong Lan (Middle Blocking) Pole (a series with single-headed pole). The length of the Pole should be about one foot longer than the stature of that practicer. The Pole for practicing Wu Xing Pole is generally made from Malaysian Kun Dian Wood or the softer ash. However, there is no absolute role for the pole, practicer can make the pole by his own preference. Practicer using harder pole can generate bigger might and greater execution, while the flexible pole is easier to handle.
    Wu Xing Zhong Lan Pole, also known as Wu Xing Pole for short, is based on the principle of neutralizing the opponent's attack to conquer him. This principle comes from Nourishing ("Sheng") and Control ("Ke") of five basic elements of Jin (Metal), Mu (Wood), Shui (Water), Huo (Fire), Tu (Earth) in the Taoism theory. Practicer should focus all his strength on the head of the Pole to make his striking mighty and step neatly and flexibly. Special attention should be paid to felicity but not a sleight of hand.
    In Wu Xing Pole, Feng (Ward off), Sha (Chop), Tan (Flip), Jian (Point), and Quan (Circle) are techniques that nourish (One of two functions between five elements) each other; Cuo (Twine), Tiao (Raise), Lan (Hold back), Sao (Sweep) and Zhi (Throwing out) are techniques that control (One of two functions between five elements) each other, and producing followed by bating between Dian (Sting), Ge (Cut), Pao (Throw), Bo (Block) and Shuai (Plunging) are techniques that both nourish and control each other.
    Jin (Mental): Some techniques moving made sidelong by Feng(Warding off), Cuo (Twining), and Bo (Blocking).
    Shui(Water): Some techniques moving downward made by Sha (Chopping:), Sao (Sweeping), and Dian (Stinging).
    Mu (Wood): Some techniques moving upward made by Tan Flipping), Tiao (Raising), and Pao (Throwing).
    Huo (Fire): Some techniques moving straight made by (Pointing), Zhi (Throwing out), and Shuai (Plunging).
    Tu (Earth): Some techniques moving centering made by Quan (Circling), Lan (Blocking), and Ge (Cutting).
    For example, your opponent resists your motions of Jin (Metal) with Huo (Fire), but your Jin can counterattack his Huo by producing Shui(water). Your choice of techniques can be derived the same way.
    Body guidance is slanting your body with twisting your waist and covering your arms. Step guidance focuses on receding, moving upon, rotating and triangle. When you exercise the Pole yourself, you can practice the veracity of your pole attacking by putting leaves, dragonflies or nuts on the ground.
