I-Liq Chuan (意力拳)is a rare chinese internal martial art based on heightened awareness of one's own body and mind, and of the opponent and the environment. The art has its foundation in Tai Chi and Zen philosophy. The heightened awareness of one's own body and mind, and of the environment allows one to harmonize and unify one's own body and mind, and ultimately with the opponent and the environment.
