Principles

The core principles of our system of Fujian White Crane are similar to those of Taiji, although their implementation is less refined, and therefore more accessible to develop in one's body and movement.

Relax, relax, relax

Let go of excess muscular tension.  Keep a calm and relaxed mind, so you can perceive clearly and act swiftly.

 

Mind, mind, mind

Use your (mind) awareness of your whole body, and then cultivate the motivation for whole-body movement from subtle mind intention, instead of blind/brute force.

Methods for dealing with force:

Floating

Sinking

Swallowing

Spitting

Springing

Lifting

Bursting

Rebounding
