I've been wondering for a while about the "Buddha Palm." I have an inkling it had to do with qi, but all my Google searches give me video game stuff. So, could you guys just fill me in about this technique?

I don't know about Buddha palm, it may just be someone's name for a palm strike. I have seen a Buddha Fist form, which is an internal form which I am told predates Tiaji Quan. It is slow moving with some explosive movements.

I think theatrical performances of martial arts, no matter what style, are very rough glimpses of what an art has to offer and how it is really used.
I saw Kung Fu Hustle and thought it was entertaining, but by no means was it an accurate depiction of how an art is used. (Judging from the smiley, you think the same?)

Doesn`t Hung Gar have a Buddha Palm or Fist (don`t remember) form?
I do know however that Mantak Chia teaches a Buddha Palm form (or Empty force sequence), which was designed to train how to move and channel chi. It is a part of his cosmic healing chi kung. I don`t know where it originates from though.

Bossman, that`s hilarious.
