Literally translated, Tongbei Quan means “Through Back Fist”, but it’s simplified translation can be intended as “Power through Back”.

Tongbei Quan is another Shaolin Daolu (dao lu = pattern, just like “katà” in Karate), this time with a precise objective in mind: to make each fist efficient by using both back and hip power.

Performing Tongbei Quan at its full speed for a good ten-times is a very good way to simultaneously train cardio, speed, flexibility and endurance.
