Image Training & Body Models Part 1

形意拳之六型/Xingyiquan Zhi Liu Xing- Xingyiquan’s Six Models:

 

雞腿 – Chicken Legs: The thighs rub each other in passing, the knees close strongly.

龍身 – Dragon Body: The waist leads movement. Rise, Fall, Expand, & Contract, all are guided by the waist.

熊膀 -Bear Shoulders: Settle the shoulders, erect the neck, raise the head & move the arms from the back. Rising Hand is not Drilling Fist, it’s using the Bear Shoulders.

鷹爪 – Eagle Claws: The hands go out like steel files, & come back like iron hooks. The hands strongly manifest the Tearing Force when separating.

虎抱 – Tiger Embrace: The chest relaxes & expands laterally. When the back is straight, the chest becomes a bow that multiplies force as it passes through to the arms.

雷聲 – Thunder Sound: Settle the Qi to the Dan Tian, relax the chest & breathe from the abdomen. When the Qi is full, the voice will resonate & sudden exhalations will be forceful. “Thunder rolls overhead, people laugh nervously to each other.”

  1. certainly like your web-site but you have to test the spelling on several of
    your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling problems and I
    to find it very troublesome to inform the truth on the other hand I’ll certainly come back again.
