Grandmaster Sin Thé will teach the first road of the legendary Mien Chien — Cotton Fist system during his visit to New Orleans.
The Cotton Fist system was originally developed by Mulan. As a keen observer of nature, she was taken by the lightness of the cottonwood seeds that would burst open, float through the air and cover the ground, only to be stirred up again by the slightest breeze. She used the element of lightness to develop the four forms which, similar to the Mulan Fan forms, have a lot of moves which crouch down to the ground followed by leaping up into the air. It combines practical fighting with the lightness of body training.
The Cotton Fist system consists of four roads. In this seminar, Grandmaster Sin The will cover the first road. It is called U Hua Paow — The Meteoric Burst of Fire of the Five Flowers and consists of 28 moves.
