Fa Men Chuan
offers a coherent and practical life proposal in the face of
the existential crisis of modern life. A system of living
which combines in martial arts the elements of its practice
which are forgotten in the process of commercialization.
This is none other than the internal formation of the
martial artist. For the purpose of internal formation, Fa
Men Chuan uses a philosophy based on the development of the
conscience human values to an understanding of our social
and individual responsibility; motivating the stimulation of
spiritual activity for a formative inner growth. The methods
include Chi Kung, meditation, relaxation, etc… In addition
there is a series of formative seminars directed toward the
modification of conduct.
Fa Men Chuan in the present
There are many schools and
versions of martial arts in the present. Within the Shaolin
monastery over three hundred and sixty schools were born, as
per tradition; ours is one of them. We believe that at the
present time there are no older schools than ours.
As a result
of its lifespan of over 1,500 years, our school has an ample
fund of experience, technique, and philosophy. In the
oriental philosophy classes, the traditional ancient
teachings are offered; an orientation which teaches the
practitioner calmness, stress-management, analytic skill,
emotional control, increased ability to study, objectivity,
foundation to the present time, the school has survived. In
America it's been functioning for several dozen years, with
over four hundred duly trained professors, and over one
hundred thirty schools in America and Worldwide, including:
USA, Canadá, México, Puerto Rico, República Dominicana,
Venezuela, Perú, Colombia, and representatives in Spain,
France, Japan, and England, offering a quality teaching
based on excellence and professionalism.
Men Chuan Organization
We are a
private non-government not-for-profit organization. We have
no political commitments. We are organized under the laws of
the Free Associated State of Puerto Rico (USA), with our own
organism of classification, without connection or submission
to any government agency. We are autonomous of other
national or international sports institutions. Fa Men Chuan
is a recognized international organization, within the
International Kuoshu Federation of Taiwan, and the Kung- Fu
Federation of Taipei (ROC).
Thus Fa Men
Chuan maintains itself always at the vanguard of martial
arts, keeping the tradition pure, with its own rules.
The athletic activities are
understood and taught as an extension of the classes. The
classes themselves are taught with the purpose of
accelerating and giving depth to the technical development
of the participant.
Ta-Yu the Door os he Sun Fa
It is the
organization through which are managed the organization,
publicity, education, and publications. Through it the
centers of integrated growth, the houses of Fa Men Chuan,
are developed. In México it is constituted since June 2nd,
2000, by permission of the Secretary of Foreign Relations
with permit # 090228925, file # 0009028925 Folio # 17074;
public article #50,214 folio #125 volume 734 year 2000.
various minor traditional monasteries or centers of martial
perfection exist, where various black sashes reside,
executing a special program leading to mastery of Fa Men
Chuan. The work is not easy. Adapting an oriental tradition
to the modern Western World, maintaining a complete
discipline and way of thinking, is truly an arduous labor.
The task is
being done, however, and soon we will see true masters
offering an incomparable teaching. We have received a
teaching over 1,000 years old, and we will extend it 1,000
years more, that is our consignment.
