Confucian Fist: Promoting traditional Chinese etiquette and Confucianism
Updated 07:59, 11-Sep-2019

The Confucian Fist originated in the late Ming Dynasty in Fuzhou City, southeast China's Fujian Province. It is a rare southern style martial art created by four Confucian scholars.

Confucian Fist is used in close combats with explosive force. Combining defense and offense moves, this martial art was divided into Confucian, fish, rooster, and dog styles. By using various animals' movements, fighters use all of the attacking space.

In 2014, Confucian Fist was listed as an intangible cultural heritage of Fuzhou City. In 2017, it was selected as an intangible cultural heritage protection project in Fujian Province.
