Description of workshop…

Master Hsin Chin is coming to the SF Bay Area and will be teaching a workshop focusing on Spinning Hands at In Motion Center on September 17th & 18th.

This will be a great training opportunity for participants with a developed practice to get 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. Participants new to the Zhong Xin Dao / I Liq Chuan System are welcome to attend with recommendation and approval of a Licensed ILC Instructor.

Hsin has an exceptional eye and can pinpoint gaps in your structure, alignment, connection and attention. The corrections and insights I have personally gained from working with him have been transformative and invaluable.


What you’ll get out of it…

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 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.

Grand-master Sam F.S. Chin is an impressive man, an excellent teacher and a kind person. He also possesses extraordinary skill in his family’s art of “I Liq Chuan”, translated as “Mind Strength Fist”, which is growing rapidly worldwide with Instructors and Practitioners in over 20 countries. I Liq Chuan is a synthesis of Tai Chi, Hsing-I, Ba Gua and Hakka arts and also a merging of Taoist and Buddhist teaching.

Grandmaster Sam F.S. Chin is the co-founder and head instructor of I-Liq Chuan trained martial arts since childhood by his father – the founder of I Liq Chuan, Chin Lik Keong.

During the 1980’s, Master Sam Chin won numerous competitions, as well as the state heavy weight kick-boxing championships of Selangor (Malaysia) in 1978.
He has been teaching for over 30 years and has conducted seminars and workshops internationally. .
Master Chin has been recognized by the USA Wushu Kung-Fu Federation as a Hall of Fame Outstanding Master.

In August 2009, Grandmaster Sam F.S. Chin was officially named the Gate Keeper/Lineage Holder of the art by his father GM Chin Lik Keong.\

Hsin Chin is a young Master with wonderful teaching skills, great heart and spirit – Hsin is excited to share his world class level of skill in accord with the Chin family legacy.
