Imperial Renaissance Fighting Systems:
≡The system includes training in Traditional Yin Style Baguazhang, Cheng Baguazhang, and Ancient Chen Taijiquan.≡ Baguazhang is based on teachings and philosophies which are thousands of years old but refined in the mid-1800s by Dong Haichuan who passed the core systems to Yin Fu (Eight Animal) and Cheng Ting Hua (Swimming Dragon). As the last Royal martial art of the Imperial Court in Beijing, Baguazhang is one of the most profound, and rare Internal Energy fighting systems. The comprehensive martial science enhances centripetal and centrifugal power control and kinetics, in martial defense and internal health. Chen Taijiquan is characterized as an ancient Internal Energy fighting system using the leverage of joints and bone structure coordinated with a flexible yielding power, to neutralize or initiate strikes in combat. Chen Tai Chi develops the change in response to outside forces, an art of yielding and sticking to an incoming attack rather than attempting to meet it with opposing force. IRFS is a training system with roots from direct lineages branching from Ancient lines of Baguazhang and Chen Tai Chi Chuan. It contains sophisticated systems of Yin and Cheng style Baguazhang, based on the eight trigrams of the I Ching (generating a complete understanding of Dong Haichuan’s original Baguazhang/ studying two separate methods between his two top disciples). The system also includes routines of martial Chen Tai Chi Chuan, Beijing/Chen Village Gongfu Jia. IRFS emphasizes concise modern training concepts and classical approach. Baguazhang training consists of Hard Palm, Smooth Palm, and Swimming Body Linking Palm (Swimming Dragon)/ with focus on Traditional Routines/Variants and technical fighting applications. Taijiquan training consists of Beijing/Village Chen Tai Chi Chuan (Old, New Frames) with focus on martial physics and internal energy biomechanics, as well as real world self-defense application and pushhands. Baguazhang and Taijiquan are internal martial arts, the integrated methods practiced strengthening mind/body mechanics and synergy of an individual’s organs, fascia layers, and energy, distinct from external training systems. The powerful motion economy, energy control, and circle walking methods restructure one’s body to utilize ancient physics to optimize cognitive performance, equilibrium, and martial function.
