Chuojioquan is "a kicking strike". It is also called "yuan yan tui" ("mandarin duck's legs"). It is one of the quanshu styles widely spread in the west of China. It has special leg functions and was famous for such functional foot capabilities as: kicks, bites, hovers, nods, thrusts, etc. Kickboxing techniques made up a special style and such boxing techniques as bagen and chjuzi.

Chuojioquan is a special method using feet in hand-to-hand fight. It appeared in times of Sun dynasty and became popular during dynasties Min and Tsin. Chuojioquan was also known as “yuanyan tui” (mandarin duck’s leg). It is consist of “bagen” (“eight roots”) and “quzhi” (“nine branches”). “Bagen” is eight strong single movements with feet returning. “The nine branches” are nine sections called 9-links-mandarin duck leg.

In this quanshu style leg motions are mostly performed. It includes the following basic leg motions: dynes (4-cycle sign), chuai ("kick", foot strike), guai ( "to turn") dyan ("a dot strikes"), tsyue (kicking backward), tso ("to interlace), den ("a heel strike"), nyan ("to press", millstone), etc. Foot tricks are divided into four types: "frank" (mines), "secret" (yin), "confidential" (mi) and "hidden" (tsan). Practicing chuojioquan helps to improve joints mobility.
