Water Style Boxing

Water Style Boxing is an internal martial art based on the Tao, a study of harmony. It is beneficial for health as well as an excellent system of self-defense.

The movements of the form have a likeness to water flowing down a mountain effortlessly around obstacles, slowing down to the stillness of a pool, and possessing the powerful force of a waterfall.

Students will appreciate the energies of T’aichi, Pa Kua and Hsing-I as they unfold as one in the more than 250 moves in the main form.

The founder of this system is Chen Tuan (c. 906 -990), a famed Taoist sage and mathematician. Water Boxing was created approximately one thousand years ago and remained a closed system until it was taught publicly in
the 1950s.

Great-Grandmaster Wu Yi hui (1886 – 1958), who was the modern authority of Water Boxing, taught Grandmaster Tao Ping-Siang in the late 1930s.

It was Grandmaster Tao who passed this gift on to Sifu Nathan Menaged.

Only a handful of schools in the United States teach Water Boxing, and we are fortunate to be able to offer Grandmaster Tao’s style.
