While it is true that any piece can move at the beginning of Chinese
Chess, it is also true that any piece may move at the beginning of Yang
Qi. If you consider more opening moves a reason for favoring a game,
consider that Yang Qi has 55 possible opening moves, while Chinese Chess
has only 44.

Just a tiny constructive comment:

If you made the white and red Bishops start on columns 'C' and 'F'
(instead of 'C' and 'G') and the Arrows start on 'D' and 'G' (instead of
'D' and 'F'), you would have a Bishop and an Arrow moving on each type
(color) of squares; and therefore no need of the 'King-Jump Rule', which I
believe is a thing that doesn't fit well with the rest of an otherwise
interesting game.

This page is hard to read and understand. Make it that a 7 year old person could read this and understand very good.

I like your idea, but you are now taking away chinese chess stratgey and puting in regular chess stratgey. This is not how chinese chess was suppose to be based off of. And another thing, the elephant in chiness chess isn't able to cross the river because then the other person's elephant couldn't take them. You see. The beuity with Chinese chess is that you can move any piece at the beginning of the game, giving the game many more posiblitys in the game. In other words, you need to redo it and stop thinking of regular chess.
