Baji Quan (Eight Extremes Boxing) sometimes called Kai Men Baji Quan, famous within China for its quick, abrupt, powerful and practical techniques.
Baji quan was originally called bazi quan (巴子拳 or 鈀子拳) or "rake fist" because the fists, held loosely and slightly open, are used to strike downwards in a rake-like fashion. The term Baji comes from the Chinese classic, the Yijing(I-Ching), and signifies an "extension of all directions". In this case, it means "including everything" or "the universe".
