The Unicorn/Qilin is the opposite of the Lion, representing pure Yin energy. It is known as the mother of the trigrams and animal systems of Baguazhang. The unicorn is characterized as the Reversing the Body Palm, capable of yielding and attacking with a whirling, whipping force. This system develops appropriate change in response to outside forces, the method of yielding and sticking to an incoming attack rather than attempting to meet it with opposing force. The Unicorn's striking methods are: sticking, adhering, soft, following, hip, striking, chopping and cutting. It generates segmented force by utilizing all joints, to produce a flexible, snapping power capable of dissolving, redirecting, and striking an opponent.
