The basic palms are the most effective techniques being used in the Eight mother palms and other movements. The basic palms need to be trained well so that you could have great ability to do highter level movements and apply highter level principles and stratgy.
The verbal transaltion of the names of the Eight mother palms and basic palms from Chinese charaaters mostly could not carry the meaning of the movements, so I will start to use Chinese pronouncation to represent the movements, then you can start to understand the meaning through my detailed explanation and your own training, some verbal translation really could carry the mening of the movements, and also carry the mening of Chinese characters, I will use the translation.
My transaltion and explaination of names of the movements will be gradually uploaded here and my facebook page.
