“Awareness is consciousness allied to knowledge. It includes being attentive to what goes both inside yourself and in the external world.
Awareness cannot be taught verbally. It has to be experienced. In order to be experienced, a particular learning situation needs to be created.
This situation must both stimulate awareness and pose problems that only heightened awareness can solve.”

About I-Liq Chuan:
I-Liq Chuan (roughly translated as “mind-body fist”) is an art of cultivating consciousness based on Tai Chi and Chan (Zen) principles of non-assertions, non-resistance, harmony of yin and yang, oneness, and the present moment. As a system of kung fu, I-Liq Chuan emphasizes the development of internal power through mental attitude and awareness. The training develops sticking and merging abilities, circular spiral energy, Chin Na (locking), Fa Jing (projecting force), Chi Kung, and most importantly, integration of the mind’s complete awareness in the present moment. I-Liq Chuan trains the ability to sense the opponent’s intention through awareness and to redirect the force and use it against the opponent or incorporate the use of Fa Jing.
