My Discover Yi Chuan course will help you unlock the power of your intent (Yi) and use it to Discover, Develop and Apply Integrated Strength  for self-defense, health restoration and energy cultivation.  

Discover Yi Chuan works by reframing daily practice to focus on developing the latent capacity we all have to use our body as a single unit.  Intense 'Feelizations' are used to induce connections within our frame and bring them under conscious control.  Permutations and combinations of variations then evolve into freestyle practice where the Integrated State is maintained by feel.  Then we learn to apply the Integrated State to self defense, health maintenance and restoration and/or life activities both mundane and adventurous.

DYC gives you everything you need.  Detailed explanation of why and how to training differently to get different results, teaching & guided practice videos on a wide variety of topics and live training sessions with Q&A are all included.  For more support you or your group can book a Check In session, focused private training customized you your needs.  For a limited time new subscribers can book their fist check in for FREE.  -Steve

Train Differently to Get Better Results - 

"Having studied a mixture of various martial arts over the years I was looking for a new teacher who could help me focus more on the internal dynamics of strength generation. Luckily I found Steve who happens to specialize in exactly that. Steve is a great teacher. His style is to not-only explain the movements of the practice and feeling-state that you need to achieve, but he also tries to put it all into practical language that explains what’s happening and why. I found that this style of explanation works very well for the way that I learn. The training method that Steve teaches has helped me to build much better internal foundations. I do have several years experience of external and internal martial arts and my original teachers have all been exceptionally talented, but Steve has helped me increase my overall body connection greatly. I can feel the difference when I practice now, I move differently and I think about power generation differently to before. Steve’s approach to teaching is very accessible and anyone at any level of experience can benefit from it. It can be studied by itself as a stand-alone art, but also provides a complement to anyone training in another martial art system. I’m looking forward to continuing this journey and know that it will always be with me in one form or other for my whole life." -Bruce, Surrey, UK

I have been studying YiChuan for coming up to 20 years now. I was a good student, as I thought, in that I did what my teacher told me to do. I practiced conscientiously but I did not ask wider and more challenging questions of myself and my teacher. It took me some 14 years into this journey before I started asking myself uncomfortable questions about what learning really means in the YiChuan context and what are the core principles on which the art is based. My learning up to this point had been a series of skills that I had not been able to link together. Lots of ‘skills’ but no hun yuan – and therefore no art. Easier to see and talk about than to do though! It was in this context that I met Steve. He was a breath of fresh air and our conversations and training focused in on the core of creating interconnectivity between all parts of myself and between me and the environment. His immense passion for the art and for helping people over this barrier to experiencing and practicing hun yuan has been incredibly helpful in challenging some of the very unhelpful habits that I had picked up. Intention Fist has been a fantastic resource for supporting my enquiry into the core of YiChuan. Not only is he extremely generous with his time and knowledge, he is very creative in trying to help me overcome blocks I have to accessing this core knowledge." - Nick, Sounthhampton, UK

"My friend and colleague, Dr. John, introduced me to yi chuan and his teacher (Steve) after learning of my affinity for martial arts and as a self-protection instructor. I was not familiar at all with any "internal art", nor had I even heard of such a concept until I met Dr. John. When Dr. John told me about his yi chuan practice, I was intrigued. He invited me to meet Steve, and I was grateful for the opportunity to see their training and check out this "yi chuan". I was quickly baffled and fascinated by Steve's Integrated Strength. I could not counter-attack any move he put on me no matter what I tried. He already had me participating in the tree wrestling exercise and demonstrated how it applies to Integrated Strength. I also attended a couple of his public workshops where I saw him displace every body type with every training background with such ease and grace. It was then that I knew I would begin my study and practice of yi chuan. Steve's web content has been a tremendous aid in my understanding of the *intention* (for lack of a better word) behind internal arts, or any martial art. After my first check-in with Steve, I was able to cultivate a daily practice where I am already seeing benefits in a short amount of time. It felt odd at first given my combatives background, but I am beginning to understand more about myself and the practice. It is evident that Steve has spent many years on his own training; but has also taken the time to read, research, prove/disprove, and distill loaded concepts into digestible exercises. His presentation and methodology will help you quickly accelerate your journey in Integrated Strength. He is very motivational, encouraging, gracious, wise and whip-smart. He always cultivates an environment that fosters very good energy, which leaves me feeling renewed and excited. All of these traits make for a coach and teacher that one would be incredibly lucky to learn from, as those are rare to come by. I have two, so I consider myself to have hit the jackpot! I cannot wait to see how yi chuan influences my pekiti-tirsia kali (PTK-SMF), combatives, and grappling training–as well as my own journey in teaching, coaching, and every other area in my life–in the years to come. Thanks, Steve!"
