Zhong Xin Dao - Paris

Welcome to the Paris website for Zhong Xin Dao I Liq Chuan, the art of Grandmaster Sam F.S. Chin. The literal translation is Zhong – 中 – Center, Xin – 心 – Heart, and Dao – 道 – Path. The art is also known as “The Martial Art of Awareness”.

Zhong Xin Dao is a unique martial art practice based on mindfulness to cultivate awareness and non-resistance. Through training we recognize and realize the process of balancing our mind and body; and we observe the power that is the effect of this balance.

Our training consists of 15 Basic Exercises, the 21 Form, the Butterfly Form, Spinning Hands, Sticky Hands and applications.
