Duan Quan, also known as Short-Range Boxing.
Is a form of kung fu practiced primarily in the Hebei Province of China. It is a short-range style created specifically for combat. The founder of this art is unknown except that it
evolved more than four hundred years ago.
A highly-dynamic and combat-oriented martial art, Duan Quan focuses on short and compact routines, low stances, and quick movements. Students are taught to be highly mobile, in order
o keep the opponent disoriented and unable to attack. Low stances and small but quick movements are major features of this style. The arms and legs are bent slightly. They also use
simple and sudden moves and the techniques are executed smartly, wasting no energy.
