Xinyi Meditation – Liuhebafa & Yiquan – by JR Rodriguez IV
Xinyi Meditation is a unification of select elements of two Internal Chinese Martial Arts: Liuhebafa and Yiquan. Although history makes mention of Liuhebafa and Yiquan practitioners crossing over and learning both arts, none prior to Grandmaster David Chan of Hong Kong, merged the fundamental aspects of both martial arts into one unified system with a comprehensive curriculum. Grandmaster David Chan thereafter named this unified system Xinyi Meditation, a name that took over 22 years of “meditation” (deep thought and careful consideration) to be realized.
Xinyi Meditation employs the notion of “xinyi” (intention) as the guiding principle of both Liuhebafa and Hunyuan Zhanzhuang, to develop a martial arts practitioner into a well balanced fighter having both superior movement and internal power. He has perfected his Xinyi Meditation system in order to be learned faster and easier than the traditional separate study of Liuhebafa and Yiquan.
I am one of four disciples of Master David Chan. I have been a Xinyi Meditation practitioner since 1986, but only started teaching the art last 2011. 😎
