Sifu Lomas presents his comprehensive knowledge of Xing Yi Quan, learnt from numerous different lineages and combined to give you the most effective training methods.
Xing Yi Quan literally translated means ‘Shape-Intention Fist’, and is characterised by aggressive and explosive power that is most often applied from a short range. Xing Yi simultaneously attacks and defends using coordinated movements to generate bursts of power intended to overwhelm the opponent.
In Volume 1 & 2 we learn the 5 fundamental striking methods – the Elements of Metal, Water, Wood, Fire and Earth.
Each element is broken down into fine detail into its upper and lower body movements and potential applications. Lastly, Sifu Lomas demonstrates some two person drills which develops the San Soo 功夫散手 (free-hand) aspect of the forms and the mechanics required to apply Xing Yi powerfully but with intelligence and sensitivity.
