The bear system is characterized by Turning the Back Palm and takes advantage from a losing position, achieving victory from retreat. The Bear's striking methods are: rushing, penetrating, withdrawing, carrying, leaning, shocking, soft and following. The Bear's power is generated from the dantian to the back, with a blunt, full body stopping force. The bear utilizes a short distance shocking force issued from the back, distinguished by a "Second Energy" differing from other animal systems of Yin Style Bagua. The opposing arm guard structures of the Bear System protects the front and back sides of the body, revolving in horizontal, diagonal, or vertical planes providing a 360-degree spherical guard around the practitioner. With addition of turning the waist and torque of the legs, the Bear Guard structure defends and strikes multiple directions simultaneously.
