The autumn leaves are falling like rain. Although my neighbors are all barbarians and you, you are a thousand miles away, there are always two cups at my table.

T’ang Dynasty poem

Ten thousand flowers in spring, the moon in autumn, a cool breeze in summer, snow in winter. If your mind isn't clouded by unnecessary things, this is the best season of your life.

Free Yiquan eBook


If you click on the title of this post, you'll be directed to a website entitled J.P.Lau's YiQuan Research. There you will find a free eBook on Yiquan available for download.

The author says right up front that this book is no substitution for live instruction. At around 300 pages, however, it looks like a very thorough overview of the training methods and aims of Yiquan.

Mr. Lau is a student of Yao Cheng Rong, whose father was the named the successor of the founder of Yiquan, Wang Xiang Zhai.

If you have any interest at all in this martial art, the book is well worth checking out.

I cannot believe nobody has posted even a simple 'Thankyou' for pointing this link out.

So on behalf of everyone who has downloaded this guide on Yiquan a massive thankyou goes out to you.

This 'basic' guide contains so much excellent information and is refreshing in it's down to earth approach and the way it informs the student that it is merely one man's interpretation of the art and the student should find his own way down the Yiquan path.

All in all one of the finest and certainly one of the most in depth pieces regarding Yiquan structure and ideas.

Thankyou again,
