iron-KW-ancientTImperial Renaissance Fighting Systems:

≡The system includes training in Traditional Yin Style Baguazhang, Cheng Baguazhang, and Gongfu Jia 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 (Interlinking Body).  As the last internal art of the late Qing Dynasty bodyguards (integrated with the wartime system “The Fairbairn Method” of William E. Fairbairn), Baguazhang is one of the most profound, and sophisticated in martial approach. The comprehensive fighting system enhances centripetal and centrifugal power control and kinetics, in historical and modern methods for self-defense and cultivation. Chen Taijiquan is characterized as an advanced Ming Dynasty art using the leverage of joints and bone structure with flexible yielding power, to neutralize or initiate strikes in close quarters elements. 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 contains biomechanic framework development and bridging of the three traditional systems – extracting methods 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 includes the framework of noncommercialized Chen Tai Chi Chuan, Beijing Gongfu Jia. IRFS is an internal martial art system, meaning nuanced internal physics is emphasized/ methods practiced strengthen an individual’s organs through intent/fascia control and internal muscle groups, distinct from external training systems. The adaptive martial structures in both empty hand and historical/modern weapons training, restructure one’s body to merge with the laws of physics of martial understanding which has evolved from the medieval to modern world.  Baguazhang training consists of  Hard Palm and Swimming Body Linking Palm (Interlinking Body)/ with a focus on Traditional Concepts/Routines/Empty Hand/ Urban Strategy/ Weapons training of historical/modern. Taijiquan training consists of Beijing/Village Chen Gongfu Jia (Old, New Frames) emphasizing biomechanics/energy intent, ancient martial framework and Ming Dynasty weapons and strategy.
