Our Chinese boxing style is known as [[Feng Shou]] 风手, meaning 'Hand of the Wind', and this has its connection with the Earl of the Wind' whose name was [[Feng Po]]. Now in Chinese mythology he is depicted as a very old man with a long flowing white beard, who stands on the green grass of the Heavens' highest pinnacle, dressed in a yellow cloak and wearing a red and blue hat. In his hands he holds the open end of a cotton sack, and wherever he points the mouth of the sack, so the wind blows in that direction.<br>
 +
Thus from his exalted position in the heavens he can turn a full circle, and send the winds unhindered across the whole world. If he moves slowly then the wind from the sack will hardly move, so it will feel like the gentleness of a morning breeze, but if he becomes angry or is surprised then he may turn very fast, and the wind will hurtle across the universe to become and create the devastation of a tornado. So don't upset him by becoming aggressive for the one thing he really hates is violence.<br>
