History of Kung Fu
Why Choose Kung Fu

Leopard (Bao Xing)

Although an external animal, the leopard does not have as much mass as the tiger. Therefore, it can’t crush its prey like a tiger. Instead it relies on speed and aggression to make up the shortfall. The leopard attacks with a relentless series of attacks, unconcerned about blocking or being hit.

“Why block when I can hit” sums up this up pretty well. Highly ferocious, this form emphasizes speed and charging at the opponent. Unlike the tiger, the leopard form has no time or need for rooted stances. The only reason the leopard would root a foot is to get a better push off when he or she leaps at an opponent.
