形意雙手劍法十字訣/Xingyi Shuangshou Jian Fa Shizi Jue – Xingyi Two Handed Sword Method Ten Character Secret

Xingyiquan is the oldest of the Big Three Internal Styles of Chinese Martial Arts. Your beloved Kung Fu Uncle is a fanatical Xingyi Man. Uncle also loves the Two Handed Sword. So it should come as no surprise that I practice Xingyi’s Two Handed Sword. Here‘s the updated, & slightly expanded, 10 Character Secret. Remember: Everything you need to know about Using the Sword is contained in these Ten Words!


十字訣/Shi Zi Jue – Ten Character Secret

劈砍刺撩剪,

  掛劃裹撥圈。

/Pi – Chop

/Kan – Hack

/Ci – Stab

/Liao – Scoop

/Jian – Cut

/Gua – Hang

/Hua – Slash

/Guo – Wrap

/Bo – Deflect

/Quan – Circle


Principles of the Xingyi Sword Method

形意武術與別派不同. 一切器械皆以拳為母。

Xingyi Martial Arts & other Schools are not the same. All of the Weapons, in every case, use the Boxing as the Mother.

 

如劈砍刺撩剪為擊法, 則掛劃裹撥圈為顧法。

If /Pi, /Kan, /Ci, /Liao, & /Jian are Striking Methods, then /Gua, /Hua, /Guo, /Bo, & /Quan are Defending Methods.

劍法種類略與拳同蓋。拳法所能者劍法亦皆能之。

The strategies of the various Sword Methods & Boxing is roughly similar. If the Boxing Method is capable of doing something, then the Sword Method should also be capable of it.
