Yiquan Poem 5

Here is number 5 in the series.

Translated by Professor Chang Shao Quan and Heron Beecham. Reproduced with permission.


The principles of martial study are truly profound;
The application of skill is stored in movements and forms.

Our intent motivates the revolving of the mind;
Yin and Yang change according to our adjustments.

Make the movements as skilful as a wolf;
Explode as powerfully as a thunderclap.

Neither neglect our development nor aid it too much;
And in time our achievement will reach the highest state.
