Chinese Martial Arts Training Camp

Liu He Ba Fa: Qi Gong, Basic Techniques & Xia Lu (lower section)

Master Nick Scrima will teach two sessions on Liu He Ba Fa, which he learned from Tao Ping Shiang, one of the eight senior disciples of Wu Yihui, regarded as the leading exponent of the system. Not as well known as Taiji, Xing Yi or Bagua, Liu He Ba Fa remains its own distinctive system. Master Tao preferred to call it Water Boxing, emphasizing that Liu He, the Six Harmonies, and Ba Fa, the Eight Methods, referred to the core principles. Master Scrima will introduce some basic techniques and Qi Gong exercises.The focus will be an introduction to the LHBF Xia Lu, or Lower Section of the system (traditionally the form is divided into two Parts, the Shang Lu - Upper Section - was presented at the 2017 camp), along with selected applications.

This material will be offered in two parts:

  • Part I will be featured on Wednesday from 9:00am - Noon. Participants will be introduced to LHBF basics, Qi Gong Exercises and Form Work
  • Part II will be featured on Wednesday from 3:00pm - 5:00pm. Participants will continue with form training and practice selected applications
