Yi quan, also known as dacheng quan, is a martial art system founded by the Chinese xingyiquan master, Wang Xiangzhai in 1920s. Derived from xingyiquan, yi quan discarded its “xing” (meaning form) part to emphasize the essence of true martial power. Yi quan is essentially formless, containing no fixed sets of fighting movements or techniques. Instead, yi quan focuses on developing one’s natural movement and fighting abilities. Yi quan is also unique for its discarding of traditional martial arts concepts, like qi, meridians, dan tian etc. to make way for new explanations and ideas rooted in Western science, medicine and psychology.

The actual training in yi quan can generally be divided into the following: Zhan zhuang — stake exercise or motionless postures; Shi li — try force or slow moving exercises; Moca bu — Shi li for the legs; Fa li — Exercises that teach the use of explosive force; Shi Sheng — Breathing exercises or testing sound, including shouting; Tui shou — Pushing hands; San shou — Free fighting practice; and Duan shou — Break hand, fighting techniques including strikes and kicks.

Based on the theory and practice of yi quan, Master Wang Yongxiang demonstrates yi quan’s piling for life enhancement techniques in this DVD. Helpful for enhancing the practitioner’s physical and mental well-being, the methods and techniques introduced require that the practitioner incorporate thought into force, not just using force to attack or fight.
