五行炮/Wu Xing Pao – Five Phases Pounding is a key Xingyi Duilian that both the Shanxi & Hebei styles have in common. It is essential for learning to apply the Five Fists for both attack & defense. It matches the Producing & Restraining Cycles of the Five Phases against each other, in a complex web of mutually generative & mutually restraining applications of force.

  3. Hey there! I just wanted to ask if you ever
    have any issues with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked
    and I ended up losing months of hard work due to no backup.
    Do you have any solutions to stop hackers?

  4. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all
    is required to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% positive. Any recommendations or advice would
    be greatly appreciated. Appreciate it
