Splashing Hands is an extremely practical, no-nonsense art. It features quick shuffling footwork and low-focused straight leg kicks. These are combined with jabs, punches, elbows, hammer-fists, chops and finger pokes thrown with blinding, machine gun-like rapidity. Opponents have a difficult time defending against the kind of attacks carried out by a fighter trained in Splashing Hands because of the speed with which the techniques are delivered as well as the sheer number of strikes and kicks the opponent has to deal with in a short period of time.
Unlike other styles of classical martial arts, which are good for tournament fighting and other controlled sparring situations, Splashing Hands is extremely contemporary in that it is geared strictly for the streets. It is in fact a pure street-fighting system.
Splashing Hands, developed at the Shaolin Temple in the late 1700’s, is a close in fighting system of kung-fu. It was taught to those monks who were in charge of guarding the temple gates. Splashing Hands, named for the way the hands move as if one is shaking water from them, is valued for its explosive, high-speed hand and footwork and its simultaneous offensive and defensive techniques. Historically, only a relatively small number of students learned this system. Even after Splashing Hands was introduced to fighters not associated with the Shaolin Temple, it never became a widely-practiced art. Those who knew the effectiveness of the system were reluctant to share their knowledge with others.
