To research the history of Tongbei quan("Spreading Power from the Back Boxing", tong "through," bei "back" and quan "fist"), the author found that there is much misinformation about. For example: "Guiguzi", Bin Chuan Tong Bei Quan, "Han", Han Chuan Tong Bei Road and "White Ape" Bei Quan Chuan Bei Quan (ref 2007 eighth issue of the Wu Tianxi fist book) etc.. These stories lie in much myth, the origins of Bei Quan and the opinion of the public are divergent. This has resulted in a serious distortion of history. Chinese martial arts being such a large national and cultural heritage provides a historical responsibility to ensure the original appearance and inheritance of the varied arts be retained. Therefore we shall examine the origins, history and developments of Tongbei boxing and its derivatives.
Tongbei quan, Wudang boxing and Songxi school boxing history
Learnt from history, inscriptions, origin relations between the historical heritage of the Tongbei boxing and Wudang boxing master Zhang Songxi.
For thirty-eight years Qi Jiajing (1559), military strategist and famous poet, was a general and leader for various armies in Zhejiang, Beijing and many other places. In order to enhance physical fitness and combat skills, he invited excellent martial artists to assist in the training of his troops, his Qi army. For a time, soldiers and civilians, Da Ming monks and Wudang Dan Shi, composed a united troop due to the anti Japanese pirate and mongol raids generating many heroic history poems. Therefore, Qi Jiguang and all the officers and soldiers learnt sixteen folk boxing, which had Wudang boxing master Zhang Songxi rate practitioners, which brought in thirty-two and six step potential Changquan Wudang Boxing (also known as road six, ten section brocade, neijiaquan, Bei Quan) to build the foundation for the training exercises. This training for the soldiers and officers was put by Song as: "Qi Quan" (also known as: Qi Changquan, only 32, after the development of 108 potential). In addition, the practice of Qi Jiguang in the training of Anti Japanese soldiers, pertaining a summary of the other classes and relevant military theory which was edited by "Ji Xiao Xin Shu", become the history model of Ming Dynasty Jiajing. Thus Begun the study of traditional Wushu theory, promoting the development of related boxing genres.
According to the "Ningbo Fu Zhi - Zhang Songxi biography": by Zhang Songxi, Yin man (now in Ningbo) and the old artist Sun Shisan. The law says in Song Zhi Zhang Sanfeng...... To Jiajing, the law was passed in Songxi for the four. The late Ming and early Qing thinker, historian Huang Zongxi (Lei Nan Zhejiang, Yuyao County, former deputy governor of Nanming) who wrote "Lei South Wang Zhengnan anthology epitaph" set: "Mitutoyo, after death, is popular in Shanxi, and the king for most cases. Wenzhou Chen Feng, Wang Zong from teaching, to teach the local people, is popular in Wenzhou. Zhang Songxi is the jiajing. Songxi has three students, and Ye Jimei last spring, four". The following four generations from the evolution of Zhejiang were; Simingshan Ye Jimei (alias Ye Jinquan) son of King Sinan flyers. Xian (also known as Wang Zhengnan, a native of Zhejiang Fenghua, a former Nanming County native). In the early Qing Dynasty, Wang Chuan Huang material (alias Huang Baixue, National Academy students, the Department of Nanming left vice governor censor, the late Ming and early Qing thinker and historian Huang Zongxi's son) entered the mainstream, a yellow line, Wudang Songxi School of material development ZTE boxing skills. The reform and innovation of these traditional martial arts skills' law system, made a great contribution to consolidting a stone strong base.
“Liulu and Shiduanjin "is derived from the original parent Tong Bei Quan
Testing the Jiajing took fifteen years of the Qing emperor Kangxi 154 year rule (1522 ~ 1676). The master Zhang Songxi, of Songxi Wudang,the representative of the internal boxing school, developed an independent school system, through the use of historical inheritance and development of the formation of internal organs, which became the school’s law. The potential relaxation of nature, through arm drill Hunyuan and “hand in a velvet glove”, a strength inside (back) rule, had also matured around this time. In this regard, the Qing emperor Kangxi of eight years (1668), the late Ming and early Qing Dynasty historian Huang Zongyi, Zhang Songxi and the disciple of Wang Laixian (alias gaotu Sinan single Wang Zhengnan) wrote, "Lei Nan Wang Zhengnan anthology epitaph".Finishing with the Qing emperor Kangxi of fifteen years (1676) with the yellow "boxing" material of the book, thus completing the records of Wudang boxing skills "School of SongxiLiulu, Shiduanjin" formula.
Huang's father declared: "Shaolin is external kungfu, Wudang is internal kungfu", a "causal neijiaquan". During the Qing Dynasty, the development of the derivative Bei boxing, indeed played a vital rol in fueling this. The sword Chi stated: "back in the home of Tai Chi, it has the same original mother boxing is derived". When the Yellow collection of books, Liulu surfaced label, ten original mother boxing: "Jin renamed neijiaquan". And said: "Shaolin, external kungfu. Wudang, internal kungfu".
Other trains of thought led to, Shaolin and Wudang having "double" methods, known as the "home alone do not agree". The leading branch, with the rule of "mother boxing arm (back)" removing two words, changed it to: "the arm (back).". This then took 24 years (1935) to be explored and confirmed by the "five elements". With it stemming back to the Qing Dynasty, Yan Bei Qi Taichang was inherited by Mr. Xu (Hebei) and his followers. Mr. Xu is one of the few left knowing the true origins and understandings of the mixture of “five rows back boxing” and “Hunyuan Taichi”.
