For other technique newsletters and to vote on this technique, please visit the main Technique of the Month section.

Hi Everyone

Thank you again for being one of our Black Belt Wiki newsletter subscribers! Each month, we plan to send you a very short email that highlights a single martial arts technique. We will focus on interesting & useful techniques from a wide variety of martial arts (i.e. Judo throws, Muay Thai kicks, Kung Fu training techniques, etc.).

Technique of the Month - Nov 2014

This month, we look at the Kung Fu martial arts training technique known as Mei Hua Zhuang or Plum Blossom Pole training. You will often see this traditional training technique used in old Kung Fu movies. It consists of large poles (similar to telephone poles) sunk into the ground. Students will then practice their martial arts techniques by stepping from the top of one pole to another pole. This training technique improves balance, footwork, leg strength, coordination. etc. For more on this technique (i.e. video demonstrations), please visit - http://www.blackbeltwiki.com/mei-hua-zhuang

I have never used this technique… as I would be too scared that I would impale myself. :) Nevertheless, one of our most helpful wiki members, Alex (a Kung Fu Sifu from Romania) enjoys using this technique. Here he is on top of the poles.
