Master Qian Zhao Hong is one of the best Xing Yi fighters in China: member of Shanghai Wu Shu Association, Vice Chairman of Institute of Shanghai Pa-Kua, Vice Chairman of Institute of Shanghai Wu Dong Qigong, and Highest level Ninth Generation of Xin Yi Liu He Quan (10 Animal Xing Yi). He has defeated more than 50 masters, earning his nickname “Chainsaw.”
His specialty is wild ring fighting. He has a strong presence/electric field around him. He is a legendary fighter. Every inch he moves and every point on his body is a fist attacking you, every time. When he was young, if his defense touched your arm, your arm would break, his kick would break your leg. If his finger touched your body, you go to hospital. He is the most respected and undefeated master.

Qian Zhao Hong, a high level internal martial artist from Shanghai and noted fighter and push hands practitioner, discusses internal principles and techniques. Qian is said to be one of the top fighters in all of China. He has trained in Xingyi, Wudang Taiji, Chan (Spiral) Taiji and a number of other martial arts, starting when he was a child in a Shanghai neighborhood called Wushu Village because so many martial arts masters lived and taught there. Most martial arts focus on becoming stronger and stronger. His emphasis is on becoming empty to get freedom of response.
Qoutes: ”The dantian power, he said, should be deep, hidden and very concentrated. ”It should be like a wild ball or ring that is floating until it moves and can then move spontaneously.” In movement, he is like a ball always in contact, as opposed to moving from point A to point B, where a gap is implied in attack and defense. … because Qian uses a balllike motion, the ball rotates in response to the opponent – his hand rotates, his dantian rotates, the whole body rotates together. ”His outside hand is in harmony with the dantian. Therefore he never lets you feel him point to point, which would create a gap and an opportunity to attack.” Because of the ball motion,… opponents are surprised and cannot fully deliver force to his body while he can easily redirect force. ”Because of the ball motion, he is like a chainsaw. The body at every point is like a chainsaw with teeth that can hurt the opponent. It is continous, spontaneous, rolling, with no beginning and no end.”
”A million harmonies” … this means that the whole mind, physical body and energy are completly harmonized so that they act as one, otherwise power is lost. While everything works together, yet everything is relaxed as water… …this comes from smooth training with focus on the dantian. ”There is deep invisible and smooth training so that all movements are smooth and the whole body is involved. This power does not come from punching the bag or lifting weights or hitting the sand bag. It comes from harmony and smoothness.”
”Big brightness.” This is like being crystal clear and giving off an aura. First you have to be empty and quiet as if you have no physical body. Then your qi starts moving. There is no physical trace or technique. The qi rises without physical effort. It is as if a tiger looks at you and you cannot move.
… fighting should not be against the opponent but should focus on sticking to the opponent and connecting to him. ”Let your force be empty. Follow your opponents force to use your opponents force. Don’t use force against force. You should always redirect the opponent’s force.”
