Wu Shu Sayings:

"The fist resembles the speed of a meteor, the eyes are as quick as lighting."

"The movements of the spear is like a floating Dragon; the sword is as graceful as the Phoenix in flight; and the broad sword is like the fierce tiger."

"If you practice only the form of fist and not the basics, even if you practice until old age you still will not achieve success."

"Practice breathing to strengthen the internal organs; practice external movements to strengthen the muscles, bones and skin."

"Take years to practice the fist, months to practice the stick, and every day to practice the spear."

"The spear is the king of all weapons."

"The stick is the grandfather of weapons."

"The fist strikes 30%; the legs stike 70%."
