What is Liu He Ba Fa
Water Boxing or Liu He Ba Fa means "Six Harmony Eight Methods." In the Daoist belief, life is a balance between the five elements. Every element is necessary for life, but the water element is the key to longevity. The creator of Water Boxing, Chen Xi Yi, lived on Hua Shan (Mount Hua) in Shanxi Province during the 10th century. Water Boxing is often considered an internal style, and it is a combination of Tai Chi, Xingyi, and Bagua. It has two major routines composed of 66 movements.
Each movement is a sequence of 3 to 7 separate techniques, and it has more than 300 moves in the two routines. It has about 700 techniques and is often called an encyclopedia of martial arts. From the outside, this form creates a calm sensation (like water flowing), but from the inside comes abundant and powerful energy.
