紅船班中正旦易金小練頭拳訣微嘗 ( a lite taste of SLT Kuen kuit according to Yik Kam the Red boat Opera artist)

反清 復明 五湖四海 十指連心 遝我河山

眼對手 手對心 手從心發 一絲不苟.....

訣云:斯為上乘法,通関開竅有奇功.

3, 拳普歌訣 ( first few stanza ofSLT Kuen Kuit)

集意会神平肩襠 双手前起半(分)陰阳 左脚跘出有善惡.... 右跟曲勁口口口...

口口口口單朝阳 吞吐如虹口口口....


Commentary:

若朔其源, 訣中諸如 "集意会神平肩襠 双手前起半(分)陰阳"之句, 仍出自峨嵋十二庄. 諸如單朝阳, 吞吐如虹之詞非白鶴门無他.

詠春以單昭陽,昭陽應六变固若金蕩.

吞吐浮沉君須記 揎蓋挑疊常要用

吞吐浮沉...揎蓋挑疊...升降開合..... 形,勢,气脉...

气平正立平肩裆 两掌前起半阴阳 ... 再将左右任分腿

White Crane Kuen Kuit for reference:

昭陽 (Facing Sun)

<白鶴仙師祖傳真法> 中的 <方七娘白鶴拳十五勢>,就載有 : [跌、砍拳...招陽、......]十五個勢法,並注明如何動作及攻防意義之所在。.......這十五個勢應為當時最早見之於拳譜中的勢法,當是當時所傳教的。

比如十五勢拳譜中所寫: [招 (昭) 陽。白鶴拳法之五:凡拳起手,只要招 (昭)陽,無論他用何勢,可用此勢,大門放過,小門直入。蓋此勢兩手顧鼻面,短牙顧中攔切,戒分腳退後。]......。

On Inch Jing Join Power

.........永春白鶴拳以 " 寸勁節力 " 見稱,能集中全身之力,於一剎那間發出,達到最好的持擊效果。要求力從胸起如雷從地發,蓄於身腰,發於臂手。........

........雙手沉肩、墜肘、坐腕成昭陽手,分成三節,肩至肘為內節,肘關節為中節,腕關節為尾節,要做到內節如鐵一般堅實,與肩身成一整體;.........

圈手入側門,坐節沉肘,肩墮;成昭陽手,手入即身入;不用僵力。

三) 兩手昭陽、吞吐節力:雙手沉肩、墜肘、坐腕成「昭陽手」,分成三節,肩至肘為內節(根節),肘關節為中節,腕關節為尾節,要做到內節如鐵一般堅實,與肩身成一整體;中節吞墜,尾節如膠如漆,靈活多變。雙手來去出力發勁,出手時吐氣(吐),收手時吸氣(吞),一吞一吐互相配合無間,堅持「中門不讓,子午不離」。練習時與肩、頭、背、胯、膝要貫串一氣,互相呼應,如有橡筋互相牽引、拉扯,吞肩坐節(墜肘),發胛力,勁達指尖。出手時節中隨身與胯同向,不可縮入開出,手節對膝,承接全身各處之力。
