Wuzuquan ( 5 Ancestors Fist)

Wuzuquan (5 Ancestors Fist).

An introduction to Wuzuquan.

Wuzuquan (Five Ancestors Fist) is a Southern Chinese martial art that consists of techniques from five different styles:

•The breathing methods and iron body of Da mo
•The posture and dynamic power of Luohan
•The precision and efficient movement of Emperor Taizu
•The hand techniques and the complementary softness and hardness of Fujian White Crane
•The agility and footwork of Monkey

Wuzuquan is also known as Ngor Chor Kune (Hokkien Dialect) and is a Southern Shaolin martial arts based on the techniques of five different styles such as: Baihe, Qitian, Taizu, Luohan and Dazun. There are several versions of Wuzuquan history, with some putting the founding of the art around 1300 AD, while other put it as late as the 1800s.

Wuzuquan is taught at KIXX under the guidance of Grandmaster Kim Sen Han who is based in Middlesex, England and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Frequent visits to Malaysia and China for courses and competitions continue to maintain strong links to the Far East.

Wuchi (Tai Chi)

Wuchi (Tai Chi).

An introduction to this soft relaxing art.

Wuchi is perhaps the easiest form of exercise to learn and practice. It does not require any special strength, coordination or athletic prowess. You can begin practicing Wuchi right away and begin to feel the benefits the very first time you try it. And yet, like any other discipline, you will be able to gain greater benefit as you practice and refine the simple techniques. The more you practice the more you will develop a greater awareness of your body, its state of balance and tension. You will always be able to improve the alignment of your skeletal system, thereby enabling you to relax your muscles more and more. The teachers tell their students, "No matter how relaxed you are, relax some more."

The only physical attribute necessary to practice Wuchi is the ability to breath. Therefore if you are alive you have everything it takes for Wuchi. When all is said and done, the most important element in Wuchi is your mind. Wuchi provides the perfect exercise for those unable to participate in more vigorous exercise programs. Both men and women can enjoy the positive effects of Wuchi equally.

Wuchi does not require any special equipment or location. Practicing Wuchi does not cause you to sweat. Therefore it is not necessary to wear special clothes or take a shower when you are finished. That means you don't have to spend extra time before or after practice.

Pushing Hands (Tui Shou)

Pushing Hands (Tui Shou):

Introduction to KIXX Pushing Hands.

Pushing Hands (in Mandarin referred to as Tui Shou) is a close quarter, practical class that develops posture and balance. A soft, relaxed approach to training is necessary to promote an intuitive state whilst developing the techniques that allow students to unbalance their opponent without losing their own in the process. The preferred method to learn to achieve this is the use of position and angle providing the minimum of strength. The use of external influences to affect balance via the use of a partner or partners to practice with is encouraged.

The training in the classes is run in loosely along the lines of the following guidelines…

The Stationary or Fixed Step Pushing Hands practice shall have a fixed foot position that orientates the feet per the photos below (Please see photos below for feet positions).

The students’ feet shall not leave the floor.
Freestyle pushing will ensue until there is a loss of balance.
There are three possible positions for Fixed Step:
1) Single Hand (left to left), left leg forward. Both hands in this position will be practiced at a higher level.
2) Single Hand (right to right), right leg forward. Both hands in this position will be practiced at a higher level.
3) Both hands feet square, shoulder width apart.

Please note that the above is an overview of the classes and as such may be altered to suit the level and experience of the students.

The Pushing Hands Class is suitable for adults over 16 years of age.

Childrens KIXX Chinese Boxing

KIXX Chinese Boxing:

Introduction to KIXX Chinese Boxing…

History records that approximately 2000 years ago in North-central China; Kung Fu (Wushu) was developed in the Shaolin Temple of Hunan Province. A the same time Master Tao Mo, a Buddhist Monk, came to the Temple to teach the Buddhist philosophy and noticed that the monks were in such poor health that they could not practice their meditations properly. From his military background, he introduced and developed a series of 18 movements (18 Element Lo Han) for strengthening and toughening the body. From these original 18 exercises other fighting techniques were introduced and perfected over time and the Martial Art was born.

In later times, the Kung Fu practised in Shaolin Temples came to have Northern and Southern sects, which were also subdivided into many distinct branches. Generally the Southern styles emphasised the use of a variety of hand techniques, many systems imitating animals such as tiger, crane, monkey, dragon, etc. The Northern styles however, placed more emphasis on the legs and a variety of kicking techniques. All of the systems eventually incorporated many types of weapons, which were employed against armed invaders.

Over the centuries many schools of martial arts have been founded, each with their own style and forms. Today there are literally hundreds of styles of Chinese Kung Fu. It is said that the origins of all Kung Fu styles can be traced back to the Northern Shaolin Temple in Hunan.

The KIXX Chinese Boxing system is known as Chang Chuen Shu, which means Long Fist Art, is a predominately Northern style utilising the Northern principles for hand and weapons fighting. The style is characterised by strong, powerful leg and hand techniques, speed, agility, confronting power with power. Attacks, counters, parries and blocks are done powerfully using the bodies speed and agility to generate the required force. As the students progress through the grading structure, Southern System (see Wu Zu Quan, 5 Ancestors Fist) techniques are gradually introduced. The Southern System uses evasion, body movement and deflection to overcome power.
