A two man pattern is not a fight. It is a pattern, containing the unique blend of principles, techniques, physical and mental exercises that makes Chinese martial arts different to other fighting arts. What does this two man Baji pattern tell us about the style? Elbows, shoulders, fists, legs . there are the full range of strikes. Forwards, backwards, sideways, circular . there is a full range of motion. Strikes, locks, pushes, unbalancing . Baji is a complete style, and two man patterns like this must be observed closely to see that completeness shine through.
