Single whip is common in most styles of tai chi. It appears several times in the forms and is a good posture to hold for qigong practice. Single whip appears early in the form and repeated throughout.

Single whip is a useful self defence move and has multiple variations. Defending from a punch, grabbing the arm and striking their head can be quite effective.

The arms being raised and standing in a horse riding stance can provide health benefits to the heart and groin area.
