Master LAM, Kam-Chuen

 
 

This is a system of martial art which Zhan Zhuang is a part of.  The name literally means 'Great Achievements', honouring its founder and the ideology of this system.  Another name for this art is I Chuan or Yiquan.

 

The founder, Grand Master Wang Xiang Zhai, was a skilled and renowned martial artist who travelled across China to cultivate and improve himself.  The fruit of his long dedication leads to one revelation: the removal of all external aspects and focus primarily on the internal.  The introduction of stillness in martial arts was then brought forth.  This revolutionary system of martial art is Da Cheng Chuan.

 

Master Lam Kam Chuen is the third generation of this art under Professor Yu Yong Nian and is an acknowledged lineage-holder by his master and Wang Xiang Zhai's daughter, Madam Wang Yuk Fong.

 

Informally, it is common to refer health-orientated side of the art as Zhan Zhuang and the combat-orientated side as Da Cheng Chuan.  The two terms are sometimes interchangeably used.

 

Currently, Master Lam only teaches Da Cheng Chuan to his experienced students.  As Zhan Zhuang is the foundation of this art, he only allows students with a certain level of proficiency in Zhan Zhuang to attend his Da Cheng Chuan classes.
