The Process of ‘Zhong Xin Dao’ – Cultivating the Neutral Path’.
You will learn – ‘How to Listen’ – ‘Ting’ and ‘How to Feed’ the correct energy to your partner so you can refine both your own and your partners skill level. This is perhaps the most important key to progress in the Internal Martial Arts. Throughout this class you will be building awareness of the Neutral Point and refining the feel of the Neutral Touch in Application. Recognizing the Neutral Half-line to establish offense and defense / full and empty. Direct Knowing through Linking and Reflection.
You will be instructed to clearly feel and access the Three Engagements, (Circle with Center, Center with Center, Center with Cross); with an emphasis on refining the use of ‘Peng’ Energy
– the Internal and External Force Field Spheres of Offense & Defense.
You will learn partner work with Condense & Expand to measure the strength of your opponent’s sphere.
Your training will progress to understand how these conditions interrelate, and recognize and manifest the feel of the furthest point using awareness of Six Directional Energy and Yin & Yang muscle balance.
About the Instructor
Master Hsin Chin is coming to the SF Bay Area and will be teaching a workshop focusing on Foundational Training in Body Unification and the Process of Spinning Hands.
This will be a great training opportunity for participants who are new to the Zhong Xin Dao / I Liq Chuan System or for those who have developed practice.
You will receive personalized hands on training, feeding of the spinning hands energies, and specific corrections for progress in your current and subsequent levels of the Zhong Xin Dao / I Liq Chuan System.
Hsin is has a exceptional eye and can pinpoint gaps in your structure, alignment, connection and attention. Personally, the corrections and insights I have gained from working with Hsin have been transformative and invaluable; opening a new sense of awareness, nuance and clarity to movements I have been training all my time in the internal martial arts.
Testimonial for Master Hsin Chin
” I have had the good fortune to meet and train with Master Hsin Chin thru several years of seminars. He has a sensitive touch. His feedback is detailed. He takes his time to see and feel what I’m doing, and then gives specific instructions for me to feel more directly, my structure, movement and especially my attention. Though he is at an incredibly higher level than me, he is able to relate to my level, and give me feedback that I can work with. Hsin pushes me to my limit, to expand understanding. Hsin has the feel of ZXD/ILC and is ever so generous in sharing it.”

About Zhong Xin Dao / 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 Internal 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.
