  • Need help with 18 basic stances translation

    Hello everyone, this is my first post to the forum. I am researching how the Chinese martial arts influenced the Korean martial arts via the ancient Korean text the Moo Yei Do Bo TOng Ji which drew from Qi Ji Kwangs 32 postures and Mao's Bubishi to name a few famous Chinese texts.

    In the text it mentions the 35 hand techniques and the 18 steps. I thought I'd start with the 18 steps. My understanding of Chinese is very limited. Although I translated the characters many of the actual techniques escape me. So I hope some of you here would share your expertise.



    1-甃步 - Mountain stance (Front stance) Bow and Arrow

    2-後甃步 - Cat Stance
    3-碾步 - Half moon stepping

    4-冲步- Jumping or skipping steps

    5-撒步-(Don't know what stance or step this is this is)
    6-曲步- Snap kicks

    7-踏步-Stomping kicks/steps

    8-敛步-(Don't know what stance or step this is this is)
    9-坐馬步- Sitting horse stance

    10-钓马步- (Don't know what stance or step this is this is)
    11-连枝步- Combination attacks

    12-仙人步- Fairy stance/walk (Don't know what stance or step this is this is)
    13-分身步 - Divide body (Don't know what stance or step this is this is)
    14-翻身步-Turn body walk (turning motions ???)
    15-追步-Purse/chase (Don't know what stance or step this is)
    16-逼步- Urge(Don't know what stance or step this is)
    17-斜步- Inclined (Don't know what stance or step this is this is)
    18-绞花步- Strangle flower (Don't know what stance or step this is this is)

    Also the text I pulled this from is linked here:
    Which seems to be a text from 1675

    Thanks again for any help

    Dan, did you look here:

    Some of these descriptions are of stances that are commonly found in Japanese and Japanese / Chinese mix martial arts.
