Quoted from iliqchuan.com “I Liq Chuan (literally translated as Mental-Physical Martial Art) is an art of cultivating consciousness based on Tai Chi and Chan (Zen) principles of non-assertion, non-resistance, harmony of yin and yang, oneness and the present moment.”
“As a system of Kung Fu, I Liq Chuan emphasizes the development of internal power through mental attitude and awareness. The training develops sticking and merging abilities, circular spiral energy, Chin Na, F’a Jing, Chi Kung, and most importantly, integration of the mind’s complete awareness in the present moment –be it in daily life or any situation. The “inner feel” is cultivated first, and then the appropriate external movement is merely an expression of the developed “inner feel”.”
This I Liq Chuan study group is sanctioned by Grand Master Sam F.S. Chin for the Chestertown and Eastern shore area.
In the study group we will explore the 15 basic exercises and work on basic two person drills in an effort to better understand the Mental-Physical unity that we often ignore or overlook.
The best explanation of the art comes from Grand Master Sam.
