The original Zhan zhuang were health methods used by Daoist’s in recent centuries, martial artists who already had static standing methods combined these with the internal mechanics of Zhan Zhuang to create a superior strength exercises. The goal of Zhan zhuang in martial arts has been to develop a martially capable body structure, but nowadays most practitioners have again returned to a health-preservation orientation in their training, and few teach Zhan Zhuang as a martial method.
The word Zhan zhuang is the modern term; it was coined by Wang Xiang zhai. Wang, a student of Xing Yi Quan, created a method of Kung Fu-based entirely upon Zhan zhuang, known as Yi quan, “Intent Fist.” Yi quan’s method of study is Zhan zhuang plus movements that continue the feeling of the Standing Post in action.
The most common Zhan Zhuang method is known as Hún Yuán “Completely Round,” “Round Smoothness”) or Chēng Bào, “The Tree Hugging” stance). This posture is entirely Daoist in its origins, it has many variations, and is the main training posture in all branches of Yiquan. This practice has recently also become common practice in Taiji and Qigong schools. In Xing Yi Quan, the practice of Sān Tǐ Shì (三體勢 / 三, Heaven, Earth, and Man) has been a root practice for centuries.
