Meihua Zhuang Session Content

Meihua Zhuang (Plum Blossom Poles) is an ancient martial art spread primarily in the rural areas of Hebei, Henan and Shandong provinces of Northern China. It is characterized by five static postures as the basis as well as movements comprised of rapid foot steps and quick movements. The basic training methods look simple and relaxed, however the internals are very subtle and hard, it helps build up the right movement and the breath required in the real fighting.

In today, Meihua Zhuang has become a holistic and effective way for self defense and health improvement. It was originated as a highly effective real battlefield art common in the north China from as early as Ming dynasty. It also integrates physical training for the internals of human body, relaxing and strengthening the mind and body, gaining speed and attaining advanced martial and cognitive-perceptual skills.

The style of Meihuazhuang is rare and very few masters of meihuazhuang teach publicly in the major urban centres of China. The member of Beijing Meihuazhuang Committee, Grandmaster Sui Yunjiang, the disciple of the famous Beijing Meihuazhuang Grandmaster Han Qichang, has been teaching Meihua Zhuang publicly in Beijing since the early 1980s.

1. Meihua Zhuang Sessions include traditional Meihua Zhuang warm up exercises, beginner level five postures with applications:

1. Major Posture "Da Shi"
2. Moving Along Posture "Shun Shi"
3. Opposite Posture "Ao Shi"
4. Minor Posture "Xiao Shi"
5. Spoiling Posture "Bai Shi"

If schedule permits, some fighting drills "Xiao Shou Tao" will be included.

2. Meihua Zhuang Weapon forms with combat applications.
