Descendants of Huo Yuanjia speak

In a fight competition on May 17, Ma Baoguo, the “Hunyuan shape and meaning Taiji master”, was knocked down three times in 30 seconds by Wang Qingmin, a 50-year-old amateur fighter, and fell to the ground directly for the last time. This result not only makes Ma Baoguo become a network celebrity again, but also puts “Taijiquan” and “traditional Chinese martial arts” on the cusp of the storm again. For a while, comments such as “can’t be seen on the shelf”, “it’s not martial arts but dance”, “swindlers gather in the martial arts world” filled the Internet. In response to this situation, Huo Jinghong, the fifth generation of xuansun of Huo Yuanjia, the great Xia of Jinmen and the representative inheritor of Huo’s hand practice boxing, the intangible cultural heritage of Tianjin, said in an interview with red star news that Ma Baoguo could not represent the traditional Chinese martial arts, he could not represent the traditional Chinese martial arts, and the traditional martial arts could not represent the whole Chinese martial arts.
Speaking of Tianjin, the most impressive image for people is probably Huo Yuanjia, the great Xia of Jinmen. The song “the Great Wall will never fall” made the former martial artist a national hero in the hearts of the Chinese people, and “Huo’s lost track boxing” (now Huo’s hand practice boxing) was a hot word in that year. At the 2017 National Games, Huo Jinghong, the fifth generation of xuansun of Huo Yuanjia, won the champion of the mass competition Qigong group competition on behalf of Tianjin team. As the only martial artist of the Huo family, Huo Jinghong is also a representative inheritor of the intangible cultural heritage of Tianjin.

According to relevant records, the great Xia Huo Yuanjia has two sons and three daughters, respectively: Huo Dongzhang, huodongge, huodongqing, huodonglin and huodongqin. Huo Dongzhang, the eldest son, does not learn martial arts, while Huo Dongge, the second son, has a high level of martial arts. At the age of 16, he went to Shanghai Jingwu association to teach. In 1924, he established Nanyang branch of Jingwu Association in Surabaya (now Surabaya, the capital of Indonesia’s East Java province). He is the successor of Huo Yuanjia’s martial arts spirit. Huo Dongge has three sons: the first, the second and the third. Huo is Huo Jinghong’s grandfather, so Huo Jinghong is the fifth generation of xuansun of huoyuanjia. According to Huo Jinghong, since her grandfather’s generation, the Huo family has gradually stopped practicing martial arts. When she was 5 and a half years old, she started to practice martial arts because of coincidence. Later, she was admitted to the Martial Arts Department of beiti university to continue to learn martial arts routines. After graduating from beiti University in 2000, Huo Jinghong joined Tianjin business school (now Tianjin Business University) as a physical education teacher. In 2015, as the only young generation of Huo family to learn martial arts, she naturally became a representative inheritor of the intangible cultural heritage of Tianjin, Huo’s hands-on boxing.
Huo Jinghong’s practice of hand boxing is a combination of Taiji, Changquan, Tanquan and other martial arts. It pays attention to the combination of hands and feet, is rigorous and flexible, and has a lot of stress on strength. “Hardness” is rigid but not rigid, while “softness” is soft but not soft. The posture is extended, the posture is correct, the movement is round and agile, and the whole body movement alternates with the local movement. Its change is more unexpected, and it is good at fighting and practical, not difficult to learn, but difficult to practice, and more difficult to refine. In 1910, in order to meet the needs of the society at that time and strengthen the people’s body, Shanghai Jingwu Association modified and compiled the Huo’s hand practice boxing, which has 72 types. In the process of practice, Huo Jinghong also found that some of them can not meet the requirements of the times. She revised them one by one. On this basis, she dug out some of the contents of other boxing and equipment, forming the “Huo Yuanjia’s lost art”. While Huo Jinghong’s own practice improved, she also promoted the “Huo Yuanjia’s lost art”.

In response to the event that Ma Baoguo, the “Hunyuan shape and meaning Taiji master” who became a hot spot on the Internet, was killed by Wang Qingmin, a 50 year old amateur fighter, Huo Jinghong said that he always paid attention to it because it happened in the martial arts circle. Huo Jinghong believes that in recent years, the reason why “masters” emerge in endlessly and compete with people frequently “is that there are too many visitors, so such things happen. If everyone doesn’t pay attention, these people may not appear Although he is not willing to evaluate “masters” like Ma Baoguo, Huo Jinghong always emphasizes that “traditional Wushu is a very broad and profound concept, so its meaning is not only to defeat each other, but also the behavior of any individual, including a group, can not represent the traditional Wushu, including my great ancestor Huo Yuanjia, It can’t represent traditional martial arts. “
According to Huo Jinghong, in addition to the role of traditional martial arts in strengthening people’s health, more importantly, it can bring people a spirit of self-improvement, “I’m strong, and I want to defeat you. These are two concepts. Our original intention in martial arts is to be strong, not to defeat others. ” She stressed that attack skill is just a function, a function and a purpose of martial arts, but it doesn’t represent all. For example, Huo Yuanjia, my current Gaozu, may be considered to be “very good at fighting” through the publicity of movies and TV plays. But in my opinion, huoyuanjia’s most powerful is that he practices martial arts so much in China when foreign enemies come and the nation is humiliated Among them, he was able to stand up, even though he failed in the end
