Meihua Zhuang sessions' 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.
