Grandmaster Tse’s Chùn Yuén Diaries 俊元日記 8

Sīgōng 師公 – Grandteacher, Wáng Píng 王平 and Sīgōng Wu Ren 胡仁 studied the same skill, perhaps they were Kung Fu brothers.

History and Name

Part 8

We start the forms by standing straight with our legs together and our feet are at 45 degrees, making a v shape. We then step forward 45 degrees to the left and the bring the feet together, to they face forwards as do the shoulders. These first movements I named “Chun Yuen Stance 俊元站樁” and “Step Forward to Bring up the Qi 上步提氣”. We can find these movements at the beginning of:

Xíng Shǒu 行手 – Style Hand

Dàbēi Quán 大悲拳 – Great Sadness Fist

Wǔ Hǔ Duàn Mén Dāo 五虎斷門刀 – Five Tigers Breaking the Gate Dāo

Shísān Bǎshǒu Biān Gān 十三把手鞭杆 13 Grab Short Stick

Mìjù Quán 密袓拳 – Secret Ancestor Fist

Èrláng Quán 二郎拳- Third Eye Immortal Fist

Yànqīng Quán燕青拳- Green Swallow Fist

Jiǔ Jié Biān 九節鞭 – Nine Section Whip

Qīnglóng Jiàn 青龍劔 – Green Dragon Sword

Báihè Jiàn 白鶴劔 – White Crane Sword

Lóngfèng Jiàn 龍鳳劔 – Dragon and Phoenix Sword

 

Five Tigers Breaking the Gate Dao and White Crane Sword have the same beginning, so, my Sīgōng 師公 – Grandteacher, Wáng Píng 王平 and Sīgōng Wu Ren 胡仁 studied the same skill, perhaps they were Kung Fu brothers, and my Sifu Wu Chun Yuen learnt from both of them. When I was studying, I saw many of my Sifu’s Kung Fu brothers practising. However, today, we are the only ones teaching this skill, as far as I have known. I have not seen anyone else teaching the same skill. So, in the end I named this skill Chùn Yuén Quán.
