It is the style of sparring traditionally used in the Shaolin Temple and is claimed by many kung fu styles as their primary method of sparring. It can be identified by the use of throws, takedowns, and foot and hand techniques used on a lei tei(I'm not certain of this spelling), which is a raised platform without ropes. If a person were to lose his balance and be forced off the mat, he would lose. It is rumored that these stages were lined with a pit of spikes. If you have seen the the Van Damme movie "Blood Sport" then you know what the stage they fought on looks like.

The correct spelling is lei tai. Sorry.
