Gung Li Chuan

About

Gung Li Chuan was founded by Chao Lian (1657 - 1748) who was from Shanxi Province in China. 

Gung Li is a form which is used by many styles as a basic training set.  This form uses dynamic tension as part of its training methods.  Gung Li makes use of deep stances in order to develop lower body strength and endurance.  Gung Li Chuan or Power Fist Form is one of the four basic Shaolin Chuan Sets.  

Gung Li Chuan is broken down into 7 sections of form.  Though the form is broken down into lines or sections, it is meant to be practiced as one complete set.  By breaking the movements down we are able to give you the details needed to learn each movement by itself, then you will be able to link the movements together.  It is more important that each movement be done correctly, then fast.  So, you can go as fast as you like as long as you do each movement perfectly.
