Chung Kuo Chuan
was the Master Form from China
Chung Kuo Chuan translates to "Chinese Boxing Form".
This is a general term used in China referring to the
"National Art of Martial Technique" (Kuoshu). The
techniques taught at Dragon's Way can trace their roots
back to the original style which came from the Shaolin
Temples of Honan and Fukien in mainland China.
The physical techniques that our students learn
are very broad and encompass many aspects of
traditional Martial Arts. Chung Kuo Chuan
teaches balance between punches and kicks, ground
and aerial fighting, pressure points, animal forms,
weaponry, energy boxing and many more.
Chung Kuo Chuan
is a life style and not a "sport"
The basic 10
principles that Chung Kuo Chuan teach students on their
journey to black belt are;
1. Rooting: Sinking and
relaxing the body mass to increase stability.
2. Yielding: Never opposing
3. Sticking: Using forward
pressure to close the gap between you and your opponent
and to control your opponent once contact is made.
Sticking expedites the climax of the encounter.
The mastering of your own complete balance and the
conquering of your opponent’s balance.
5. Six-Nine Theory: The
theory of change, inspired by the “I Ching.” A boxer
guided by six-nine theory retains the ability to change
energy and tactics at any moment in combat. He never
overextends and never commits himself to an “all or
nothing” gambit. Six-nine theory also entails a
philosophy favoring techniques with a high percentage of
6. Unitary Theory: The
development of maximum power and speed, not by reliance
on the muscles, but by training every part of the body
to work in unison, and by learning to draw fully on the
body’s internal resources.
7. Projection: Turning
energy within the body (“chi”) into force directed at a
point outside the body.
8. Line and Angle: The study
of the angles of the body and the lines of attack to
promote efficiency in defense and economy in the
projection of energy. With an appreciation of line and
angle, you can fend off attacks with subtle movements,
sometimes of less than an inch. You eliminate wasted
motions that delay seizing the offensive and create
openings for further attacks. You avoid clashing with
your opponent head on, but instead maneuver to his weak
angle, where you need less power to vanquish him.
9. Body State: A special
development of the muscles that allows energy to
circulate freely and project powerfully. This entails a
pervasiveness of energy throughout the entire body,
rather than the segmenting of energy into isolated parts
of the body.
10. Mind-Hit: The mastery of
the mental dimensions of combat. This is a broad
category that includes methods of disrupting an
opponent’s mental focus.
By learning how to apply these 10
key lessons, a Chung Kuo Chuan student will have a more
complete and well-rounded level of Martial Arts than
most any typical form taught in the United States today.
With a focus on physical ability and awareness, Chung
Kuo Chuan guides students to a harmonization between
mind and body using their own internal energy of power!
