Meihuan Quan is one of the famous boxing styles in Chinese Martial Arts with a heritage of about 4000 years. It is rich in content and diverse in form. The skills or acrobatics were practiced on the piles. More recently, the training methods have been changed from piles to the ground. Meihua Quan is translated as plum blossom boxing or, in short, plum blossom pile.
Meihua Quan is rich and colorful, and its martial arts include four parts: frame, forming boxing, twisting boxing, and weapons. The frame is the basic training method containing the five stances or momentum called Da Shi, Shun Shi, Ao Shi, Xiao Shi, and Bai Shi. The stances are practiced left and right for symmetry, like the five plum blossoms petals open.
Between the stances, there are movements flexible and rapid, advance and retreat, up and down, moving east and west, flexible and changeable, making the enemy fall into a fog, unable to distinguish its direction of footwork. This method is best for practicing hand and eye movements, like the branches of a plum tree.
Meihua Quan is very different from other styles because it consists of “Wenchang” and “Wuchang.” Wenchang guides the Wuchang. Wuchang represents martial arts and teaches boxing theory. Wenchang teaches culture to respect teachers and ancestors, studies arts and sciences, and the magic method of incense ceremony.
The cultural aspect contains the essence of Buddhism, Taoism, and Confucianism and the magical applications of the Eight Trigrams (Ba Gua), Five elements theory, and Yin and Yang. It emphasizes the cultivation of the mind and the practice of spirit. To become proficient in the arts and sciences, the activities include the establishment of sacred halls, incense, and memorial tablets, incense burning, ancestors’ worship, and chanting sutras.
The practitioners are required to possess the capacity in both literal and martial arts. The literature theories belong to the higher level of Meihua Quan, guiding martial arts skills. Without mastering literature theories (Wenchang) one could hardly reach the truth and essence of Meihua Quan.
Wenchang’s study shapes the code of conduct and ethics, and together with the Kung Fu skills training, it could turn the practitioner into a successful and qualified master in a long run. The theoretical studies train the mind in martial arts practice to coordinate the body and mind, the mind with breathing.
The five Qigong stances, Da Shi, Shun Shi, Ao Shi, Xiao Shi, and Bai Shi must be kept still followed by movement between stances. The stance transitions comprehend the internal Qi, gathering the Qi in the body as a natural force. The purpose of the practice is to achieve a state of holism, a state where the body, mind, and spirit act in a perfect manner. The most important trait of Meihua Quan is the coherent integrity of literature theories and Kung Fu skills.
The Meihua Quan levels of development are based on the Duanwei system (professional grading), not on the belt system, which is specific for karate practitioners.

Every success story to come from the Shaolin Temple, big or small, has relied on the formula G.A.S., Grit, Action, Support! Your success story will be too.
Shaolin Temple built the Meihua Quan, Health, and Juventology online course because they saw too many people having major issues with body coordination and meridian blockages leading to a lack of flexibility and balance. They built it because they saw many people lost in so-called authentic learning and knowledge of Martial Arts basic skills and traditional forms.
They also built it because they were tired of the noise and smoke of all the overpriced, hyped-up, and ineffective courses and programs out there. They are taking advantage of people who didn't know whom to trust.
Meihua Quan has five basic stances, which are fundamental static Qigong stances. They all correspond to an element from the 5 Elements Theory of Traditional Chinese Medicine and a set of internal organs (Yin and Yang). The stances are Da Shi, Shun Shi, Ao Shi, Xiao Shi, and Bai Shi.
Da Shi’s stance corresponds to the element metal and internal organs: Lungs (Yin organ of the respiratory system) and large intestine (Yang organ of the digestive system). The stance governs the Qi, skin, hair and regards the nose as its window. The stance corresponds to the Lung Meridian, a Yin Meridian, and controls the energy and the breath.
It is paired and has an internal/external relationship with the Large Intestine Meridian. The lung, together with the Heart Meridian, assists with blood circulation. It is also responsible for descending body fluids and water in the body.
Shun Shi’s stance corresponds to the element water and internal organs: kidney (Yin organ) and bladder (Yang organ) from the urinary system. It governs water metabolism, absorbs Qi, and the ears are the window of the kidneys. The stance corresponds to the kidney and Bladder Meridian. The Kidney Meridian (the root of life) is a Yin Meridian that flows upwards.
It controls the development of bones and nourishes the marrow. The lack of energy in the kidneys and impaired function is connected to poor memory, lack of clarity, backache, weakness in the legs and knees, edema, fatigue, urinary issues, feelings of cold, impotence, and slow childhood development.
Ao Shi’s stance corresponds to the element wood and internal organs: liver (Yin organ) and gallbladder (Yang organ) from the digestive system. The liver stores the blood. It governs the regulation and strengthening of the ribs, being the window of the eyes.
The Liver Meridian is a Yin Meridian paired with the Gallbladder Meridian, a Yang Meridian. The function of the meridian is for filtering, detoxifying, nourishing, replenishing, and storing blood. It also regulates the blood and Qi circulation during resting and exercising.
Xiao Shi’s stance corresponds to the element fire and with the internal organs: heart and pericardium (Yin organs from the circulatory system), small intestine (Yang organ from the digestive system), and triple burner (Extraordinary Yang organ that does not exist in Western Medicine).
The triple burner or San Jiao is responsible for the water passageways of the body and connects the three Dantian or energy centers, which are: upper (heart, lungs, and pericardium), middle (liver, gallbladder, spleen, and stomach), and lower Dantien (kidneys, bladder, small and large intestines). The heart stores the spirit and governs the blood and the blood vessels. The tongue is the window of the heart, and its outward manifestation is seen in the face.
Bai Shi’s stance corresponds to the element earth with the internal organs: stomach, (Yang organ) and spleen (Yin organ) from the digestive system. The earth element governs the metabolism, digestion, production of blood, and the transportation and transformation of body fluids and is responsible for keeping the blood in the vessels.
The spleen is the origin of the acquired constitution and the source of postnatal Qi and blood. The spleen likes dryness and dislikes dampness. The lips and the mouth serve as the reflection or the window of the splenic conditions. It manifests in the flesh and the muscles. The symbolic direction is the center.
Mei (梅) Hua (花) or plum flower is a highly valued flower in Chinese culture. It is a symbol of resilience and perseverance in the face of adversity because plum blossoms often bloom most vibrantly even amidst the harsh winter snow.
