LHBF Lineage
Chen Xiyi (989 AD). A Taoist hermit who lived up Mount Hua, believed to be the originator of the Art.
Wu Yihui was the first master to introduce LHBF to the public in Shanghai in 1930’s. Many of Wu Yihui’s students had other martial arts backgrounds and modelled the LHBF form to merge with their own martial arts. This is one of the explanations for its similarities with other martial arts such as Tai chi and Yiquan.

In the 1950s, Liang Zi Peng, Sun Di, Fong PS, Lee YN and others introduced LHBF to the wider world.

Many LHBF practitioners believe the practice of LHBF forms part of the cultivation of micro cosmic energy flow of the body. Indeed the names of the LHBF moves trace the energy flow from the lower Dantian to the crown (Baihui) in the picture below.
