I’m going back someday, come what may …..

Dachengquan (Yiquan) is an internal martial art which shares many of the same principles of Taijiquan, Xingyiquan, and Baguazhang…..read more here.

Dacheng which I would translate to “major accomplishment or success” is fascinating for anyone looking into evolution of TCMAs.

I don’t claim to know a lot about this but through the many books and videos that started surfacing these last 10 yrs or so, I see an effort to return to the original face of CKF through their unique paradigm of training.

Okay. Okay like I said, I got only armchair knowledge so don’t shoot me.

Superficially glancing at the system, you see elements from the 3 major internal styles, standing qigong, Fukien White Crane and even western boxing all rolled into it.

Where is the Fukien White Crane, you may ask?

Well, it is recorded that WangXiangZhai spent time working with White Crane exponents in his expeditions and many authors talk of “White Crane energies” that Wang integrated into his Yiquan.

Me?

I see some of their kicks as very White Crane-ish ….. perhaps its just me ……… and my good friend Mr. Carlsberg ……
