Introduction to Xingyiquan (September 2020)

6 Week workshop with Dondrub Wangchuk

Xingyquan (also spelled Hsing I Chuan) is the most direct of the three "internal" Chinese martial arts, which also includes Taijiquan and Baguazhang, being likened to the head of the dragon or to a cannon ball of energy (Qi) because of its direct, counterattacking techniques. The legendary 12th century Chinese general, Yeuh Fei, used it to train his victorious troops.
This style of Xingyiquan, which can be traced back to Liu Qi-lan, is based on the Wu Xing Quan or Five Element Fists: ¬ Splitting (Metal), Drilling (Water), Smashing (Wood), Pounding (Fire) and Crossing (Earth). Subsequent training includes the Five Element Linking sets, the Twelve Animal sets and 2-person sets. Related training includes Yi Quan standing meditation postures, which are a powerful Qigong tool.

Will run again, September 8, 2020
