Another infrequently heard about style – Da Hong Quan.
Not to be mistaken with “Big Red Fist” associated with Shaolin, Hong here refers to the bird “swan goose”.
Don’t have too much info regarding this except that it predates the Song Dynasty and is inspired by 2 mountain goats fighting. Before Song, that would makes it over 1000 years old.
The name Da Hong is purportedly named after the Hong spirit.
Hey hey, we are talking about the Chinese here, what do you expect!
