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.
