China's Yiquan top experts and
their training materials

This web site is dedicated to those who seek a direct access to the authentic teachings in Yiquan (Yi Chuan, aka Yi Quan, I Chuan, Dacheng or Da Cheng Chuan).
The dual aspect of Yiquan: Healing oneself and  learning combat practices is not a source of contradictions. Rather, these two faces are complementary and inseparable, as Yin is for Yang and vice-versa.
Often, the healing aspect is sadly neglected in Yichuan, while combat practices and the relentless search for inner and physical efficiency are  greatly overplayed.
In reality, most Yiquan fighters do include in their training health exercices as well as well as proper diet to help them extract maximum efficiency from their physical and spiritual / mental  bodies.
I hope you will  enjoy these exceptional and rare documents, photos, video clips featuring Top Experts in this field.
This way, the information which is normally available, only to disciples and students in attendance, can be brought to all persons interested.
