LFIAA Li Style (Lishi) Feng Shou-Kung Fu “Striking The Vital Points On The Body”

The reason why the Li Style (Lishi) Feng Shou-Kung Fu has various striking sets known as the Poison Hand Methods (Du Shou Fa). Is that these strikes are aimed at vital Qi cavities (Qixue) on the opponents body that can cause either a knockout, paralysis or death. The Chinese call this acquired skill Point Pressing (Dianxue) or Fall Strike (Dim Mak) or the term that I quite like is the Crushing Points Strike (Ya Sui Da). The Poison Hand Strikes that are taught to each and every practitioner of the Li Style Feng Shou-Kung Fu are directed at these same vital Qi-points on the opponents body, the word Poison (Du) is the type of power (Jin) that the practitioner emits into the opponents body to disrupt, disperse and scatter their natural qi flow within their body, which will cause damage to their internal organs (Zangfu), hence poisoning the body.

Some of the areas of the opponents body that the Feng Shou-Kung Fu practitioner targets, has more than just one of these vital Qi points passing through the area. If you can imagine a roundabout where more than three roads connect to it, then this is what some of these vital Qi points are like, they can have three to four meridians or channels passing through the same area. For example the clavicle as the Stomach channel, the Kidney channel and the Large Intestine channel passing through the area. So a well timed strike aimed at this area can cause tremendous internal damage and Qi disruption to the opponent.

But irrespective that each practitioner might have a good knowledge and understanding of the location of these vital Qi points on the opponents body. But without being able to issue any power into their Poison Hand Strikes that can then cause disruption to the opponents Qi makes them ineffective and useless. The ultimate aim of every Feng Shou-Kung Fu practitioner is to issue power (Fajin) out of their Poison Hand Striking Methods, which means that every practitioner has developed their ability to coordinate their whole body mechanics in a smooth, well timed and precise way so as to issue power.

Developing a relaxed, aligned body with skilful body methods (Shen Fa) so as to issue power is really what every practitioner must achieve. If they truly want their strikes to become poison to the every opponent to crush their vital points.
