Through investigation, it is found that the "Location San Jiao" is actually the dissimilation of "Liu Fu San Jiao", and the three parts of "Liu Fu San Jiao" should be divided by functional features rather than anatomical structure.

Our research has found that the core reason of above dispute is caused by the vague understanding of the meaning of "Chu". Based on the analysis of relevant text of Nei Jing and the character of Chu with the meaning of leaving, it is concluded that "Wei Qi Chu Shang Jiao". And it means Wei Qi has left Shang Jiao of Zang Fu system and following into Meridian system, according to Wei Qi' s connotation of following and protecting. Shang Jiao is the original starting point of Wei Qi in circulation just as it is born. And Shang Jiao is the place where "the slippery and tough Qi of water and grain" has transformed its name into "Wei Qi", which is also the conjunction point that Wei Qi changing from Ti (ontology) into Yong (methodology). And it explains the theory of clinical application based on this view.
