Liuhe Quan or the six-combination Chuan is combat orientated. It is believed to be a derivative of Shaolin Quan and to have been passed on from an old boxer named Cao who lived at Botou in Hebei Province during Emperor Daoguang’s reign in the Qing Dynasty (1821-1850). This style of Chuan was handed on from Cao to Li Guanming; from Li to Wang Dianliang, Tong Zhongyi and Li Shuting. Tong Zhongyi, known as one of the twin heroes in Cangzhou, opened a club in Shanghai to disseminate it further.

Liuhe Quan features strong, yet graceful stances. Its moves look comfortable, compact and vigorous. They are powerful with a clear-cut difference between substantial and empty moves. The moves of six-combinations Chuan imitate those of the dragon, tiger, crane, rabbit and monkey, and boxers rove in accordance with the Chinese eight diagrams. Resourcefulness and dexterity are demanded in executing the moves of evading, extending, jumping and moving either fast or slow, heavily or lightly …. Visit website here.

This is a follow up on an earlier entry about LiuHe, one time taught in “Chi Lu” in Singapore.

And like in the description above, this is one graceful, compact and vigorous system – brilliant Northern style in my book!
