This system, taught by Grandmaster Wei Lun Huang to Sifu Dennis, offers one’s mind and heart the ability to sharply focus on each movement which is led by intention rather than physical force. There are six harmonies, eight methods, three stances and twelve postures, however — once the student connects the postures, they become one seamless whole.
