An Introduction of Jia Pai Divided up within a Quan Zhong
Jia Pai (school or group), is generally referred to as a sort of different varieties or subspecies within a particular Quan Zhong (species or genres of boxing). In Mainland China, different styles of various individualities within a Quan Zhong would be normally qualified as unlike Jia Pai differed from each other with distinct Shi (branches usually denoted by diverse family names), Shi (styles) or Pai (groups). In Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan and Guangdong Province, those are primarily designated as Jia (schools), Pai or Jia Pai.
     Compared with Quan Zhong, the appearance or creation of different Jia Pai is attributable to the diversification of the marked individualities of martial arts. During the period of teaching and learning a Quan Zhong, a Jia Pai had been formed and come into being due to the learners with various personal experiences and understandings had inosculated their Kung-fu with what they had learned and practiced.
    So-called a style of individuality has been a general result summed into by what a pugilist has ever practiced and experienced for a long time and his particular understanding (including all the good qualities whatever he has absorbed and gathered from other schools of Quan). On the other hand, it might be formed by a pugilist who, in order to give prominence to his individuality, purposely added or abandoned something in the content of the martial arts he learned.
     Quan Zhong can also be formed along with the historical development and maturity of a certain or more Jia Pai. In fact, the existing or newly emerging Quan Zhong nowadays also own some styles or particularity of various individualities somewhat similar to Jia Pal at the beginning of their formation. They might also be a combination or association of some local colored collective wisdom within different Quans. For example, the well-known Xing Yi Quan (forming and minding boxing) was derived from Xin Yi Quan (minding and intending boxing). Cai Li Fo (Cai school, the Li and the Buddha school) Quan belonging to Nan Pal (the south group) has getting its name because it bears the most of the contents of Cai Jia Quan (the Cai school boxing), Li Jia Quan (the Li school) and Fo Jia Quan (the Buddha school). In addition, many Quan Zhong come from the north and south of China mostly came into being after the separation and development of some earlier formed Quan Zhong.
     In recent years, some Pai ofTai Ji Quan (shadow boxing), such as Chen Jia Pai (Chen school) and Yang Jia Pal (Yang school) and so on, almost advocate roughly the same theory though, but widely diverge from each other with their understandings, researching and practicing ways and exercises. Compared with many existing Quan Zhong come from the north and south of China nowadays, those various styles of Tai Ji Quan seem to be different ones.
     Making a comprehensive view over any or all Quan Zhong and Jia Pai in the kaleidoscope of traditional martial arts, we can notice they are not on the same level and layer. We can recognize different levels and layers by thinking about the various kinds of Chinese traditional Kung-fu with their comprehensive culture contents and what the martial artists have been exercising in one sort has been emphasized already with his general cultural quality.
     Absorbing, gathering and abstracting the common characteristics and the cores of the theories and practicing experiences of any or all Quan Zhong and Jia Pai, we will get that all kinds of Chinese traditional Kung-fu surely being a Da Jia (a huge household).
