PHK "Plum Flower Set" Combat Applications

4 “secret” keywords of Mui Fa Kyun are “Advance, Retreat, Attack, Defense”. Notice the order of importance.

The set teaches basic boxing skills in the south paw guard of the ancient Siu Lam box, i.e. – for the majority of people – with the dominant right hand in the front, using mainly straight punches (Ping Cheui), uppercuts (Tung Tin Cheui), hammer fists (Pek Cheui) and right leg kicks.
