What is meihua Quan?

The most ancient martial arts

Meihuan Quan is one of the famous boxing styles in Chinese Martial Arts with a heritage of about 4000 years. It is rich in content and diverse in form. 

The skills or acrobatics were practiced on the piles. More recently, the training methods have been changed from piles to the ground. Meihua Quan is translated as plum blossom boxing or, in short, plum blossom pile.

The style practices the Qi shaping the inside and outside body.
The training on the Meihua piles is exquisite because of the combination of the steps, which are like the connecting branches following the EIGHT TRIGRAMS, FIVE ELEMENTS THEORY, YIN & YANG THEORY.

The frame of meihua quan

Meihua Quan is rich and colorful, and its martial arts include four parts: frame, forming boxing, twisting boxing, and weapons. The frame is the basic training method containing the five stances or momentum called Da Shi, Shun Shi, Ao Shi, Xiao Shi, and Bai Shi. The stances are practiced left and right for symmetry, like the five plum blossoms petals open. Between the stances, we have movements flexible and rapid, advance and retreat, up and down, moving east and west, flexible and changeable, making the enemy fall into a fog, unable to distinguish its direction of footwork. This method is best for practicing hand and eye movements, like the branches of a plum tree.

What is unique about meihua quan?

Meihua Quan is very different from other styles because it consists of “Wenchang” and “Wuchang.” Wenchang guides the Wuchang. Wuchang represents martial arts, and teaches boxing theory. Wenchang teaches culture to respect teachers and ancestors, studies arts and sciences, and the magic method of incense ceremony. 

The cultural aspect contains the essence of Buddhism, Taoism, and Confucianism and the magical applications of Eight Trigrams (Ba Gua), Five elements theory, and Yin and Yang. It emphasizes the cultivation of the mind and the practice of spirit. To become proficient in the arts and sciences, the activities include the establishment of sacred halls, incense, and memorial tablets, incense burning, ancestors’ worship, and chanting sutras.

Why is learning meihua quan so important?

"My ancestors spoke to do good deeds and respect the heaven and earth, the parents and teachers."

The practitioners are required to possess the capacity in both literal and martial arts.  The literature theories belong to the higher level of Meihua Quan, guiding martial arts skills. Without mastering literature theories (Wenchang) one could hardly reach the truth and essence of Meihua Quan. Wenchang’s study shapes the code of conduct and ethics, and together with the Kung Fu skills training, it could turn the practitioner into a successful and qualified master in a long run. 

The theoretical studies train the mind in martial arts practice to coordinate the body and mind, the mind with breathing. 

The five Qigong stances, Da Shi, Shun Shi, Ao Shi, Xiao Shi and Bai Shi must be kept still followed by movement between stances. The stance transitions comprehend the internal Qi, gathering the Qi in the body as a natural force. The purpose of the practice is to achieve a state of holism, a state where the body, mind, and spirit act in a perfect manner.  

The Most Important Trait Of Meihua Quan Is The Coherent Integrity Of Literature Theories And Kung Fu Skills.

What you will receive

meihua Quan stances

Meihua Quan has five basic stances, which are fundamental static Qigong stances. They all correspond to an element from the 5 Elements Theory from Traditional Chinese Medicine and a set of internal organs (Yin & Yang). The stances are Da Shi, Shun Shi, Ao Shi, Xiao Shi, and Bai Shi.

da shi stance

Da Shi’s  stance corresponds to the Element METAL and internal organs: LUNGS (Yin Organ of the Respiratory System) and LARGE INTESTINE (Yang Organ of the Digestive System). The stance governs the Qi, skin, hair and regards the nose as its window. 

The stance corresponds to the Lung Meridian, a Yin Meridian, and controls the Energy and the Breath. It is paired and has an internal/external relationship with the Large Intestine Meridian. The Lung, together with the Heart Meridian, assists with blood circulation. It is also responsible for descending body fluids and water in the body.


Da Shi Meihua Quan stance
Shun Shi Meihua Quan stance
shun shi stance

Shun Shi’s stance corresponds to the Element WATER and internal organs: KIDNEY (Yin Organ) and BLADDER (Yang Organ) from the Urinary System. It governs water metabolism, absorbs Qi, and the ears are the window of the kidneys.

The stance corresponds to the Kidney and Bladder Meridian. The Kidney Meridian (the root of life) is a Yin Meridian that flows upwards. It controls the development of bones, nourishes the marrow. The lack of Energy in the Kidneys and impaired function is connected to poor memory, lack of clarity, backache, weakness in the legs and knees, edema, fatigue, urinary issues, feelings of cold, impotence, and slow childhood development.


ao shi stance

Ao Shi’s stance corresponds to the Element WOOD and internal organs: LIVER (Yin Organ) and GALLBLADDER (Yang Organ) from the Digestive System. The liver stores the blood. It governs the regulation and strengthening of the ribs, being the window of the eyes. 

The Liver Meridian is a Yin Meridian paired with the Gallbladder Meridian, a Yang Meridian. The function of the meridian is for filtering, detoxifying, nourishing, replenishing, and storing blood. It also regulates the blood and Qi circulation during resting and exercising.

Xiao Shi Meihua Quan stance
xiao shi stance
Xiao Shi’s stance corresponds to the Element FIRE and with the internal organs: HEART and PERICARDIUM (Yin Organs from the Circulatory System), SMALL INTESTINE (Yang Organ from the Digestive System), and TRIPLE BURNER (Extraordinary Yang organ that does not exist in Western Medicine). The Triple Burner or San Jiao is responsible for the water passageways of the body and connects the three Dantian or Energy Centers, which are: Upper (Heart, Lungs & Pericardium), Middle (Liver, Gallbladder, Spleen & Stomach), and Lower Dantien (Kidneys, Bladder, Small & Large Intestines). The heart stores the spirit and governs the blood and the blood vessels. The tongue is the window of the heart, and its outward manifestation is seen in the face. ASSIGNMENT 4
bai shi stance
Bai Shi’s stance corresponds to the Element EARTH with the internal organs: STOMACH ( Yang Organ) and SPLEEN (Yin Organ) from the Digestive System. The earth element governs the metabolism, digestion, production of blood, the transportation and transformation of body fluids and is responsible for keeping the blood in the vessels. The spleen is the origin of the acquired constitution and the source of postnatal Qi & blood. The spleen likes dryness and dislikes dampness. The lips and the mouth serve as the reflection or the window of the splenic conditions. It manifests in the flesh and the muscles. The symbolic direction is the Center. ASSIGNMENT 5

common questions

We get asked these a lot

This class is ideal for everyone.  From complete beginner to advanced practitioner, for the person who if performs well the routine can achieve certification to be able to teach it; for the person that has failed to get up from a comfortable couch over and over because it is old, fat, uncoordinated and embarrassed to exercise.  For the person who cannot find the motivation to work alone or the person who gets bored quickly because exercise is not fun and the entrepreneur that’s burning the candle at both ends. The corporate executive who lives from the hotel room into a hotel room. The friend that can never commit to going out because it is tired at the end of the day. The guy that always buys something with the thought will do the trick, canceling, and post pointing. The mom or dad finds excuses for not finding the time in a busy schedule as a full-time parent. So, let’s FIND THE TIME! Human adults need to live a free life where they have control over the only thing which belongs to them: own body.

Well, this class is not suitable for the person who is looking to learn advanced Kung Fu in 2 weeks and get certified as a teacher. The friend who has its mind about what is best as exercise, the one that is looking for fighting. For this type of class, you can join our other courses. If you subscribed to our Shaolin Path or Bundle Membership you should not buy this course. 

Yep. We think the best contract is no contract. You can cancel your course at any time. However, cancellation does not mean a refund.
