Cháng Jiā Quán, Xiǎo Luóhàn Quán
Chang Family Boxing"s Small Luohan Boxing

Chang Family Xiao Luohan form practiced in rural Henan village.
Although rare today Chang style was once highly respected being called one of the Three Big Names in Henan boxing (along with Shaolin and the legendary I'll find out later style). Chang Family Boxing used to be very popular in the Zhengzhou area of Henan up until the mid 1900's. The Chang family system includes several Shaolin forms. This is not surprising seeing how close he lived to the temple. Several researchers have theorized that he learned Shaolin Luohan boxingfrom his teacher Yan Shengdao in Luoyang. The Chang system includes several Luo han Sets including both Da and Xiao Luohan forms and QingLong ChuHai Quan. It also includes other Shaolin sets such as Da Hong Quan and Pao Quan.
The Chang Jia Quan system was created by Cháng Nǎi Zhōu of the Zhengzhou area of Henan province in the early/mid 1700's. Chang Naizhou was known for his mastery of not just the highest levels of martial arts but also his knowledge of the Confucian classics, Medicine, Neigong, and Buddhist and Taoist scriptures and practices.
Since childhood Chang Naizhou studied martial arts diligently seeking out the best teachers he could find. Eventually after gaining a profound knowledge of the martial arts as well as medicine, philosophy, and Neigong, he created his own unique system.
He also left a very large amount of writings detailing not just forms but also the philosophical underpinnings of his art, as well as the first practical, detailed accounts of the use of Neigong and medical theory in martial arts. A select portion of these writings have been translated into English.
His writings are thought to have been very influential in the development of Taiji Quan.
