Bao Quan, also known as Leopard Kung Fu, is a Chinese martial art.
Bao Quan does not overwhelm or rely on strength, but instead relies on speed and outsmarting its opponent. The power of the style derives from its aggressive speed. The leopard practitioner will focus on elbows, knees, low kicks, and leopard punches. Bao Quan fu is a hit, damage and run style designed to overcome superior forces with inferior resources. Counter attacks are sudden, indirect and short, with the aim of landing a debilitating technique.
The goals of Bao Quan style are to:
- develop muscle speed for external strength,
- teach patience,
- use the leopard punch for penetration and lower body springing power.
