The form HOÀNG SƠN



(Source: Post 172

In this Post VCDO November 2021 you will find all the nine parts of this important form: HOANH SON Quyen created by G.M Phan Hoang in 1914. This quyen/form could be executed in both styles: gentle and slow or dynamic and clear cut.

Historical facts. During the last part of the 16th century Vietnam was in chaos situation: King Mac, Lord Trinh, and Lord Nguyen were fighting against each other for gaining the power. On that background a great master appeared: Master NGUYEN BINH-KHIEM (1491-1581). He was the master for all the three antagonists, author of many writings, and especially a book called Sấm Trạng Trình which is considered by some people a book of advices on strategy while many people believe, so far, it is a Vietnamese equivalent book to ‘Nostradamus’. Up to our time NGUYEN BINH-KHIEM is venerated as an Immortal in the Buddhist Sect CAO-DAI.

 Story and legend. NGUYEN HOANG  was a brilliant officer serving in the army of Lord TRINH-KIEM who was his brother-in-law. Lord TRINH-KIEM was aware of the possibility that later NGUYEN HOANG  will challenge his authority, therefore Lord TRINH was awaiting for an opportunity to eliminate his potential opponent. Facing this great danger NGUYEN HOANG  called on master BINH-KHIEM for advice. On that meeting the master did not say a word but pointing his forefinger to the south, beyond these mountains, then waved his forefinger three times before stopping and drawing a lateral line.  NGUYEN HOANG  then understood that the master told him to go far away to take refuge behind the Lateral Mountain Hoanh-Son. And then after what will he have to do? The master still did not say anything, he just gave him a book and motioned him to go. Following the advice of his master NGUYEN HOANG went south with his family and a number of followers. He seriously applied the knowledge and strategy gained from the book of the master and later became a Lord NGUYEN.  Generations after, one of his descendent became King GIA-LONG founder of the NGUYEN Dynasty (1881-1945).    

 According to popular oral-history the advice of master BINH-KHIEM was in this saying:

 “Hoành Sơn nhất đái, vạn đại dung thân’ = One Transverse  Mountain can protect many generations.

 It is believed that the original copy of his book is still to be preserved at a pagoda known under a code name ‘CHUA MAI’, somewhere in North Vietnam./.

COMMENTS FOR THE THREE SETS ( Number 01 to number 06)

It is foolish to teach those who do not want to learn and it is criminal to transfer knowledge to those who would use it against humanity. Therefore, the priority should be given to those who come forward asking for knowledge -with sincerity and honesty, and with good intension of learning. So with observation -of the stances, the gestures, the behaviour, the mind- a master could see how deep, how sincere a new comer is.


Hoành-sơn nhất đái is a high chain of mountain in central Vietnam which makes the pass difficult. So the first required quality for those who want to learn Hoanh-Son Quyen is the willingness to overcome difficulty, to be determined, and to be persistent. In other words, at first step, Hoanh-Son aims to train the learner in this way.


Viễn kiến vô ngại . Successful and happy people are those who develop vision at any situation, they are trained to foresee and to be determined. They will quietly opt for the best solution. 


Nguyệt ảnh thâm tuyền.  In a night of full moon, looking up to the sky, people can see a beautiful moon; and they see only one moon. But the wise observer, looking down to a river, can see many moons reflected through thousands of waves. The water, for not having rigid form, can provide surprising power. The mind of a wise learner is beautiful like a moon and deep like water; moving slowly but surely. /.
