Xingyiquan

Hsing-I Chuan 形意拳

5 element 12 animal's style

 

Xingyiquan (Form and Mind Boxing) is internal martial arts and features as a foundation five basic techniques, based on the powers of five elements: metal, water, wood, fire, earth. This style of boxing has also evolved from the imitation of the characteristic movements, spirits, and natural fighting instincts of twelve animals, such as dragon, tiger, monkey, horse, water lizard, chicken, sparrow hawk, swallow, snake, tai bird, eagle and bear. Simple, steady, and fast movements, as well as straightforward and compact routines, characterize this style.

The practice of Xingyiquan 形意拳, as well as Taijiquan or Baguazhang 八卦掌, improves the Qi circulation in the body and maintains health. In addition, the training builds up an abundant level of internal Qi so that both the physical and the mental bodies can be strengthened.
