Enhance internal power and precision energy circulation, with intent/fascia connectivity. Energy control along the meridian pathways, is enhanced with understanding of dantian control methods and advanced coordination of every segment of the human body. Traditionally, the Dantian is the energy and gravitational center in humans located approximately three fingers width below the navel and towards the center of the body. The dantian is surrounded by unique layers of muscles and the vital organs within the lower abdominal region. Dantian Control develops accurate coordination of the internal abdominal muscles with complex martial movement/connecting the brain with the gut, which modern science considers to be “the Second Brain” and the Enteric Nervous System. The gut, like the brain, contains hundreds of millions of neurons and regulates not only digestion, but cognitive function as well as efficient response to the environment. By training the connection of the Dantian Control Methods with the practitioner’s mind/intent, synchronicity of internal energy flow with the spiraling of tendons is optimized, in an ancient evolutionary way.
An exploration of technical striking and physics, with advanced knowledge of internal energy and power control. The integrated martial system trains the body to generate force from synergy of breath and momentum, utilizing kinetics of spiraling movements and refined mechanics. Formwork practice optimizes intent and fascia connectivity. Circle training heightens the practitioner’s natural vortex, improving the cycling of cerebral spinal fluid in the body while increasing inter-hemispheric communication within the brain. The frames and formwork of Imperial Renaissance Fighting Systems trains the practitioner to step with circular geometry and strike with precise angles of attack, utilizing centripetal and centrifugal power/ similar to blades rotating on a fan. Routines are divided into three categories- Yin Style Bagua/Eight Animal Hard Palms (Fajin based or smooth, explosive power), Yin Style Bagua/Penetrating Palms (Intent based, continuous flow), and Cheng Baguazhang martial frame strategy/Swimming (Weaving) Body Linking Palms (Dynamic coiling, fluid). Experience the martial science used by the ancient imperial court and excel in nuanced movement adaptation.
Apply principals of martial physics with instinct, leverage, and economy of motion for self-defense. Build internal strength and adapt and change in response to outside forces. Baguazhang power generates from the correct alignment of internal body structure, synchronized with breath, energy, and core movements in a systematic way. With proper control of muscle/tendon layers and the skeletal structure, the practitioner develops a spring-like body, coiling and uncoiling, constantly changing, moving, striking. Subtle coiling rotations of the body remain in motion with internal muscle control, as the entire body continues to revolve with spiral force. Every joint and bearing in the human body rotate with a gear-like torque, layering precise muscle groups for focused shocking power and fluidity.
