Sha Da Chuan founded the art by developing it from his teacher, Wang Yue Qun's Tai chi Yuan Gong style. Later Xu Yi Qian learn the Tai chi Yuan Gong of Sha Da Chuan's lineage from Li Xue Qun by further adding more movements into the art. Then it was named Chuan Na Cha Quan, and later changed to Chuan Na Quan but the system is basically Chaquan. Chāquán is associated with the Hui people. One famous master of Chaquan was the famous Wang Zi-Ping (Chinese: 王子平), who was known for his great strength. Other famous modern day masters include Zhang Wenguang, Ma Jinbiao, and Liu Hongchi.
Chāquán is one of the sources of the contemporary wǔshù Chángquán often seen in movies and tournaments. Chaquan is a system that has 6 main weapons (staff, saber, sword, spear, kwandao, hookswords). It emphasizes long range movements and stances combined with speed and power. The style includes many forms, including 10 lines of tantui for basic power training, 10 longer sets of chaquan, and other forms as well.
