Yiquan (Mind or intent boxing)
Practice consists of standing postures (Zhan Zhuang), basic movement patterns, push hands, expressing force practice, and later free fighting practice. With it’s focus on Zhan Zhuang and the importance of coordinating mind and body, Yiquan is considered neijiquan, an internal martial arts system. Although Yiquan is a martial art, the focus of practice especially in the beginning is on establishing health and strength through relaxation, correct posture, increased circulation, and opening up and loosening the joints. As a martial art it contains no fixed set of fighting techniques. Instead the focus is on cultivating body and mind to move freely in any situation.
Yiquan includes training for cultivating health and the study of martial arts skills. Because of the way Yiquan is practiced both health and martial arts can be practiced simultaneously. Though if one chooses to, they can focus only on health training.
