Shifu using the Wuxi Finger Hold on Po

The use of the Wuxi Finger Hold involves pinching an opponent's index finger and then flexing your pinky. Once the pinky is flexed, an explosive golden shock wave occurs. It is unknown what happens to the opponent who has the move performed on them, though the hold has built a reputation for itself as being highly advanced and dangerous.

Trivia

  • In the first storyboard version of the Wuxi Finger Hold of the first film, Shifu used a Chinese finger trap to catch Po.[2]
  • In an interview with "Po", Scholastic News Online asked about the hardest move for him to learn. Po confirms with the Wuxi Finger Hold and states that Shifu told him (after he defeated Tai Lung with the hold) that there's really no such move; it was just a story that kung fu masters made up to scare their students into submission. In addition, Po couldn't really recall how he did it.[3]
  • According to some traditional Chinese sources, the "third dynasty" that Master Wuxi had invented the hold may have been the Zhōu Dynasty.[4]
