Introduction of Nan Quan Techniques                   
 I. Head
    Player's head should be kept facing the front with a straight neck. The consciousness must be absorbed in and maintaining calm and serious all the time. When the pugilist stays still, his eyes will watch forward or peep at his hands and steps at times. When his movement is started, his hands will act in association with his eyes all following his attention.
 II. Body
    1. The chest and the back
    There are two typical poses of the upper part of the Body----one is to lift the chest and tighten the back; the other is to constringe the chest and expand the back. The most popular branch of "Nan Quan" famous for its various Qiao Fa (the special methods for the arms' movement looked like many bridges) prefers to the frontal pose of lifting the chest and tightening the back. Another branch constringing the chest and expanding the back is good in combat or fighting. What should be paid attention to the latter pose is that the method should be performed within a reasonable extent. One should not act liking a hunchback.
     2.The waist and the crotch
     Taking advantage of moving the waist and crotch can help the pugilist to become more forceful. So Nan Quan's techniques require focusing on moving one's waist to speed up his movements and pressing on the crotch to make body stable.
     3.The abdomen and the buttock
     Do not put the abdomen forward or put the buttocks backward. Pugilist should tighten up his abdomen and buttocks in order to keep the body straight.
  III. The legs and the crura
     One should keep his legs and crura steady and place his center of gravity between two legs. He should move his legs speedily and firmly.
  V. The arms
     There a saying goes, "porrect arms cherish power; arms nearby defend body duly." Even though the two methods of the upper body are quite different, both of them prohibit one's shrugging the shoulders or raising the elbows too high making his movements stiff. Qiao Fa (a kind of method named bridging) is widely used in "Nan Quan." Take the "Quan Qiao" (circling bridging) for example, one's arms should be kept straight in front of the body, and then moved upright circles in proper size. When one is practicing another kind of Qiao Fa, "Pan Qiao" (setting up bridging), he should bend his arms into a circle staying at the height between head and waist. Obviously, the above two movements are relating to various circles. Working hard on them is beneficial not only to perform methods of hands and arms but also to master the fundamental skills of defense.
