Zuan Quan

Xingyi Quan, or Form-Intention Boxing, emphasizes the development of relaxed power by training proper body alignment and strengthening the connections between muscle, tendon, and bone. Based on the theory of the Five Elements (Wu Xing), Xingyi is well known for both its martial applicability and its health-building aspects. We teach the Hebei-style Shen Long Xingyi curiculum of Hsu Hong-chi. Instruction includes extensive warm-up and conditioning exercises, standing meditation, empty-hand forms and two-person training, gradually advancing to weapons training.
