Catching the Leg can be an effective in supporting the action and precision of the hands. Baguazhang’s Wind Palm combines both splitting and twisting to subdue the opponent, creating pressure on their biceps femoris, gastrocnemius, and achilles tendon, in order to lock their spine, while Xingyi’s Metal Shape uses elliptical linear structures to dominate the upper hemisphere of the opponent and upset their central equilibrium with a standing leg hook. Both styles engage the opponent’s aggression with lightness and sensitivity, maintain contact, and exploit weaknesses in the opponent’s situation.
