打人如拔草/Da Ren Ru Ba Cao – Hitting People is like Pulling up Grass

Xingyiquan is full of great images to bear in mind while practicing. This particular example refers to the relaxed mindset necessary to respond spontaneously to the situation. 

  • “Crossing Hands is like taking a walk, Hitting People is like pulling up grass.”
  • ” When the Hands & Feet arrive together, Hitting People is like pulling up grass.”

And, as my own Teacher said, “Train like there’s an enemy, fight like there’s no one there.”
