Ten Animals Kung Fu presents descriptions and analyses of 88 routines and short forms of Xn Y Li H Qun. The Third Edition provides additional descriptions (primarily of turns and finishes) and revisions within the descriptive structure and analyses of the Second Edition.
The Second Edition presents descriptions of the 82 short forms within the new standardized format of Begin, Continue, Turn and Continue, and Turn and Finish. The standardization simplifies understanding forms and comparisons within and between groups of forms. Descriptions of the 6 long routines have been revised within the original steps. The following chapters are new:
Primary Functions, Turns, and Finishes provides qualitative and quantitative analyses of the purposes and frequencies of these major aspects of Xn Y short forms.
Applications provides descriptions and analyses of the practical functions of the forms.
Transition Routine provides a long routine that focuses on standard Xn Y transitions between subroutines, the key to creative practice.
