Xing Yi is one of the famous big three internal arts of China, but is perhaps the least known or available. Unlike its highly popular cousin Tai chi, Xing yi is not as well known in the west and has a small but dedicated following. However, Xing yi has a rich and complete history spanning centuries and is actually likely the oldest of the 3 major internal styles. It contains a series of apparently simply movements but contains great depth, in both power generation and the promotion of health.
Xing Yi uses a defined series of training methods to refine and develop the exponents efficiency, power and health. These methods are direct and cut straight to the heart of the system; from the standing posture known as "San Ti Shr" to the 5 building blocks of the style, known as the 5 element fists, Xing Yi is a clear and progressive system. In order for the simply movements to create great power and skill, one must train them consistently over a long period of time. The monthly training course is designed to build you skill in an intelligent and progressive way, one step at a time and with clear focus.
