Chung Kuo Chuan

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 force.

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.

4. Centeredness: 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 payoff.

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!
