Since ancient times, Meihua Quan has been transmitted and taught from generation to generation from two distinct perspectives: Wenchang, the field of knowledge, and Wuchang, the military or martial arts field.
Meihua Quan’s theoretical and philosophical elaboration are included in manuscripts that the masters have secretly handed down over the centuries. Since the 14th Century, the study of the theory and practice of Meihua Quan (Wenli 文理 and Wugong 武功) have been opposed and repressed by the Chinese imperial authorities, resulting in real secret societies.
The Wenchang represents the cultural and philosophical doctrine, with a specific systemic autonomy, relating to the theory, history, and genealogy of the Meihua Quan style and literature, geomancy, divination arts numerology, and health preservation. It was born and developed as the unification of the philosophical contents of Buddhism, Taoism, Confucianism, linked to the theories of Yin & Yang, the Five Elements, and Bagua (eight trigrams theory).
Meihua Quan theory includes the contents of the Chinese philosophy such as the “Daodejing” (“The book of the way and its power” or “Laozi”) and the “Yijing” or “Book of changes “giving a reinterpretation in a holistic whole.
