Master Camp 2007: LiuHeBaFa

La Honda Masters of Kung Fu 2007

Another of  the China’s Living Treasure series with an emphasis on LiuHeBaFa style. This DVD shows standing exercises and single actions movements from LHBF. George Xu helps with the translation as Yun Yin Sen shows his Primordial Qi gathering technique. Also George gives one of his insightful presentations on the topic of “quiet” in the martial arts.

From #25060 and the CLT catalog: 

“This title focuses on the Huayue Xinyi Liuhebafaquan system, also known as “water boxing”. This system is from the Sung dynasty and older than taijiquan. On this volume Master Yun Yin Sen focus on the fundamentals and internal practice of this system. Although Master Yun demonstrates the entire form at the end of this title, this should not be viewed as a form instruction title. The content of this camp was to focus on the internal and external fundamentals of this Sung dynasty system. Master Yun came to the USA at the direction of the head of the Xinyiliuhebefaquan Association in Shanghai to disseminate this teaching

There are eight sections covering: standing forms, standing instruction, individual basics, “Circulation of the Primordial Qi” form demonstration, “Circulation of the Primordial Qi” form training, “Circulation of the Primordial Qi” form with no sound with which to practice, demonstration of the entire Liuhebaquan form and a scroll of the qualities of this system. The “Circulation of the Primordial Qi” form is their qi internal training method. Practitioners of this system do not refer to it as qigong, however, although in the West in would fall in this category. This form is extremely useful for general health and not limited to the practice of this system. Master George Xu does the commentary and English explanations of this system.”
