Taught progressivly through forms or routines, which develop different body skill sets as they get higher and more complex. Forms or routines are a library or catalogue of individual techniques, which must then be understood through use of application.

The eagle claw system is taught in a systematic and progressive way, once the sequence or form is learned, it is then broken down into individual techniques which are then in turn broken down into applications.

At the heart of the eagle claw system is the trinity or heart forms of the system, they are:

Hun Kune Sup Loh – The Ten Roads of Eagle Claw
Lin Kune Ng Sup Loh – 50 rows connecting or linking fist
Yat Ling Bhat Cum La Sau – 108 two man partner form

It is not until a student has fully learned these three forms and understands how they link together in design and application that the student can call themself a true eagle claw practioner.
