Hua Quan is an old style with a huge repertoire of techniques and forms. It stands as a complete system of martial art.
There are traditionally 48 hand sets to master in the system, including:
the 12 core forms, 12 advanced forms called roads, sparring sets, Chin Na, long and short weapons sets and specialized training methods.
As the style spread throughout the region, it became named after its place of origin- the Hua Shan area around Shaanxi Province. A highly developed style, there is an old saying in a
form of a poem that basically states "knowing the 48 hand sets of Hua Quan, one can travel anywhere under the heavens."
