For the first time ever, Bruce has created two internal arts training programs that teach Hsing-i Chuan and I Chuan Standing Postures (Over 10 hours of footage–11 DVDs total).These are some of the most powerful health, chi building and martial practices in China.
This training program covers the fundamentals of the wood fist of hsing-i chuan, also known as beng chuan or crushing fist. Beng Chuan is represented by the wood element and it is often compared to the force of a powerful plant growing and expanding through concrete with a steady, inexorable force. The wood element is linked to energy of the liver and relates to taking action and moving through obstacles in the world.
This training program teaches the fundamentals of the water fist of hsing-i chuan, also known as tsuan chuan or drilling fist. The physical motion of tsuan chuan goes from down to up and uses peng, an expansive internal energy. The internal pressures that tsuan chuan generates within the body during execution of the technique, in addition to its basic chi work, directly and positively affect the kidneys and the whole vitality of the body. Tsuan chuan is represented by the water element, and focuses on making the hands able to move around an opponent's arms like water moves around a rock.
I Chuan—mind intention boxing—uses eight standing postures to develop internal power and vibrant health. The I Chuan system was developed by Wang Hsiang Zai. He was a student of Guo Yun Shen from the Hebei Hsing-i School, a style heavily influenced by bagua zhangi.
This is the most comprehensive material Bruce has ever offered about these subjects. If you are looking for a way to build chi for health or for martial power, this series of DVDs explains the internal workings and secrets of these amazing arts. Bruce calls these practices 'The Fastest Way to Build Martial Power and Chi'.
