Lecture: Zhong Xin Dao (Neutral Way) Martial Art of Awareness

A world leading proponent of internal Chinese martial arts, Grand Master and Professor Emeritus Sam F.S. Chin is on his way to Hertfordshire and will deliver a free lecture at the University of Hertfordshire on Friday 23rd March 2018, 6pm-8pm.

Grand Master Sam F.S.Chin is Gate Keeper of I Liq Chuan (Martial art of Awareness) - the fastest growing Chinese internal martial arts system in the world with instructors in over 20 countries. He is a founder of its unique training method Zhong Xin Dao (Centre Heart Path, laterally translated as Neutral Path) Trained initially by his father during 1980s Sam Chin won numerous competitions and was recognised by the USA Martial Arts Federation as Hall of Fame Outstanding Master. In November 2017 become a honorary professor of State University of Plovdiv, fitting recognition for life dedicated to Zen and research into martial arts. Today he is based in Pleasant Valley, New York with his wife and four children, and continues to teach his art worldwide via workshops, lectures and seminars.

I Liq Chuan (literally translated as Mental-Physical Martial Art) is an art of cultivating consciousness based on Tai Chi and Zen principles of non-assertion, non-resistance, harmony of yin and yang, oneness and the present moment.

Practitioners believe that everything is created through the energy of yin and yang. The whole universe has yin and yang energy and when yin and yang energy is balanced, they are harmonized. Students are taught the art through philosophy and a series of exercises in order to learn to recognise and discipline the inner energy flow (Chi). Developing this art benefits the whole nervous and intrinsic systems and brings total control, harmony and awareness to the mind and body.

I Liq Chuan makes you aware of your strength, its limits, and the best use of your strength for self-defence. As a system of Kung Fu, it emphasises the development of internal power through mental attitude and awareness. The training develops integration of the mind’s complete awareness in the present moment and then the appropriate external movement is merely an expression of the developed “inner feel”.

Further details of his other engagements whilst in Hertfordshire can be found at www.iliqchuan.com or by contacting Irek on ireneusz.zareba@iliqchuan.com.
