I-Liq Chuan is an internal martial art based on Zen (Chan) and Taiji principles. The name translates into mind-body fist or mental-physical boxing. I-Liq Chuan emphasizes the development of awareness as the basis for martial skill. The training process includes harmonizing yourself by directing mental attention to one's senses to gain understanding of body structure, muscular movement, and the link between the mind and body. The harmonizing with your opponent training involves partner exercises to develop circular spiral movements with sensitivity, sticking, and merging abilities (I-Liq Chuan spinning/sticky hands training is similar to taijiquan's push hands training). Sifu Sam Chin (and instructors from the I-Liq Chuan Association) comes out to the bay area (about twice a year) to teach weekend workshops and to check on the student's progress in I-Liq Chuan.
