Learn about Leopard Kung Fu - Chinese Martial Arts Style

Leopard Kung Fu (or Bao Quan) is a Chinese martial arts that focuses on aggressive speed and agility to defeat an opponent (versus Tiger Kung Fu which relies on strength and powerful strikes). Leopard Kung Fu is also known as Panther style.

This style of Kung Fu is famous for the Leopard Punch, a half fist strike. Nevertheless, Leopard Kung Fu uses a wide variety of punches, elbow strikes and kicks. According to Mandarin Kung Fu, Leopard Kung Fu utilizes "a series of fast and unrelenting techniques" (versus attempting a single knockout punch) and "the movements of the leopard do not emphasize blocking, because this would slow down the attack. Instead of blocking an incoming technique, the leopard movements would use a slight shift out of the way followed immediately by a series of fast attacks".
