This section would feature the Xiangqi Manuals that are still extant since the Southern Song Dynasty (960-1276AD), a thousand years ago. Unfortunately, most of the material that the Webmaster has in his collection is in a mess. It has been an ongoing effort for the past few years to try to classify them. 

The main reference that the Webmaster has chosen is Encyclopedia of Xiangqi Manuals by Yang Mingzhong et al which is an established reference book for the ancient manuals in mordern times. Please note that the legendary Xie Xiaxun had also written a similar encyclopedia with a similar name but the main reference material used in this Website for this section would be Yang Mingzhong's version.

The Webmaster will continue slogging to try to upload these ancient manuals, which he believes are an integral part of the history and culture of Xiangqi. Your Xiangqi journey CANNOT be complete without going through them.
