Developing Stillness, Peace & Strength
This Qigong system is famous for creating more energy, strength and stamina in your body
It also enhances an experience of Stillness and Peace and Quiet in your mind.
The original Zhan Zhuang exercises were health methods used by Daoist’s in recent centuries.
Martial artists who already had static standing methods combined these with the internal mechanics of Zhan Zhuang to create superior strength exercises.
The goal of Zhan Zhuang in martial arts has been to develop a martially capable body structure, but nowadays most practitioners have again returned to a health-preservation orientation in their training and only a few teach Zhan Zhuang as a martial art method.
The word Zhan Zhuang is the modern term; it was coined by Wang Xiang zhai. Wang, a student of Xing Yi Quan, created a method of Kung Fu-based entirely upon Zhan Zhuang, known as Yi quan, “Intent Fist”. Yi Quan’s method of study is Zhan Zhuang plus movements that continue the feeling of the Standing Post in action.
The most common Zhan Zhuang method is known as Hún Yuán “Completely Round,” “Round Smoothness” or Chēng Bào – “The Tree Hugging” stance. This posture is entirely Daoist in its origins, it has many variations, and is the main training posture in all branches of Yiquan.
This practice has recently also become common practice in Taiji and Qigong schools.
In Xing Yi Quan, the practice of Sān Tǐ Shì (三體勢 / 三, Heaven, Earth, and Man) has been a root practice for centuries.

“My mission is to help people experience that they are connected to and are part of something much larger than themselves.”
I am the last known remaining teacher of the Jen Gee Dao Tai Kit Kuen Monastery School Principles and Philosophy, originally from Southern China.
During my 30 years of both treating people in my TCM Acupuncture Clinic and practicing and teaching Taiji (Tai chi) and Qigong, I have learnt what true health in a human physical body really looks like and how to achieve it. I believe if you really want to be healthy then you need to see your life, the world and why you are here in a different way.
Prior to studying TCM, Qigong and Taiji, I spent 16 years in the New Zealand Army and seven of those in the NZSAS (New Zealand Special Forces).
I am also a husband, a father of three children and a grandfather. I love traveling the world with my wife, Josephine, and my young son, Rayner – meeting new people and experiencing their cultures and countries.
