YI QUAN (Mind Boxing) page 2

Yi Quan (Mind Boxing) is also known as Da Cheng Quan (Great Achievement Boxing). Though seemingly a simple system Yi Quan is subtle and deep emphasizing mental training as much as physical. Though originally derived from Xing-Yi Quan, this style simplifies even more completely eliminating Tao Lu (forms). Rather than this traditional practice Yi Quan has a number of other methods. These include Zhan Zhuang (Standing meditation drills), Tui-Shou (Partner Exercises), San-Shou (fighting training), Fa Li (Issuance of Power), and others, Shi Li (testing force).

Yi Quan puts a lot of time into training mind, fist and strength. To accomplish this Yi Quan attempts to eliminate outdated practices and approach Quan Xue, that is to say the Science of Boxing. Yi Quan sees three main approaches to martial studies for self defense, health and the joy of study itself. By streamlining this process, it is felt, more people can safely and enjoyably study the arts. Students start with Standing exercises for health then progress to standing exercises for self defense. Then begins its other methods of single and partner practice.

This is a disk on "Fa Li" or "issuing power" This phase of Yi Quan's (Mind Boxing) method concentrates on essential martial movements and the proper energy or power issued with their practice. A number of exercises lightly but definitely issue the correct actions for martial application. As is typical of Yi Quan the attempt is to strive for simplicity and motions that are natural yet truthful. This aspect of the training is more martially than health oriented but retains Yi Quan's directness and accessibility.
Yi Quan Free Hands

Yi Quan fighters surprised many people in the 1920's with their powerful showings in certain tournaments and, at the same time, their deceptively simple methods of training: right out of the heart of their mother system, Xing Yi.
