HSING-I Training Program


Great Grand Master Sun Lu-Tang long spent many years training in Northern Kung-Fu systems, Special Chin-Na Practices, and Shuai-Chiao, then trained extensively in Hsing-I, Pa-Kua, & Tai-Chi. Through this training he created to a Complete, Internal System - The Sun Lu-Tang System. Within this system he combined the knowledge of his masters from each system to develop the first truly integrated Internal Martial Arts System. Sun Lu-Tang was famous for his ability to instantly overcome any opponent without punching, kicking or struggling in any way. This method was the root of old China's elite body guard companies and is known as Chin-Chiao - “Faster Then Thought Self Defense.” Advanced training consists of studying other branches of Hsing-I or Pa-Kua.
