Farewell, Grandmaster Feng Zhiqiang [1928-2012]
Chen Shi Xin Yi Hunyuan Taijiquan
He is the originator of Chen Shi Xinyi Hunyuan Taijiquan, a distinct training system that is mainly the combination of what he learned from Grandmasters Chen Fake and Hu Yaozhen.
In Hunyuan taijiquan, every movement contains Yin/Yang, movement & stillness. Hunyuan taijiquan put virtue & morality at the foreground. As GM Feng often said,
The essence of Hun Yuan is ‘Xiu Xin’ (correcting the heart) and ‘Wu De’ (martial virtue). When there is no virtue a high level of gongfu can not be accomplished
Feng Zhiqiang is a grandmaster of the 18th generation of Chen Style Taijiquan and is considered the top student of 17th generation masters, Chen Fa-ke (Taijiquan) and Xinyi Grandmaster Hu Yuezhen.
Over the years, Hunyuan taijiquan would become one of the vehicles for students all over the world to reach what GM Feng called, “The Big Tao”… reaching beyond just taiji boxing… nurturing qi and expanding spirit.
