Feeding Crane Seminar With Liu Chang’I

July 18 & 19, 2009, Boston, MA


Liu Chang’I

Liu sifu is the lineage head of the Liu family Feeding Crane system, from Taiwan. Feeding Crane was brought to Taiwan in the early part of the 20th century, from Fuchow, China. The system has been passed down unchanged in the Liu family, and contains a complete and traditional curriculum, including power development (kung’li), forms, application, chi’gung, body conditioning, as well as herbal medicine and other traditional practices. Liu sifu’s power is amazing, and his technique is superb. The system also shows clear connections to Okinawan karate, making it of unique interest to those interested in the roots of the Okinawan martial arts.


If you would like to see Liu sifu in action, there are a number of videos on his Chinese language website: http://feeding-crane.myweb.hinet.net/, and there are a number of videos of him on YouTube. His website is also very informative, though it is in Chinese. There is an interview with Liu sifu here: http://www.dragon-tsunami.org/Dtimes/Pages/article36.htm .


This seminar will introduce the Feeding Crane system. It will cover some of the power development exercises (kung’li) that give the system its incredible power. Introductory forms including 3 Battles (Samchien/Sanchin) and applications of the forms, as well as other training practices will also be taught. These training methods will be of great interest to Okinawan karate practitioners as well as practitioners of traditional Chinese martial arts.
