Product Description

Product Description

Region 0 Dvd playable anywhere in the world. Master the Art of Twelve Animals Kung Fu (Gongfu) Xingyiquan (Hsing I Chuan), or 'Shape-Mind Fist' is a well-known Chinese internal martial art, similar to Taijiquan (Tai Chi Chuan). Xingyiquan imitates the movements and inner characteristics of twelve animals the Dragon, Tiger, Monkey, Horse, Water Lizard, Chicken, Harrier, Swallow, Snake, Chinese Ostrich, Eagle and Bear. Mastery of these animal forms gives you a variety of simple and effective fighting techniques. Xingyi training also builds your Qi (energy) for improved health, and your muscular strength for incredible power and vitality. The fundamental postures are demonstrated, including the Five Phases, with explanations of their relationships to Five Elements Theory. Senior students demonstrate the two-person Five Phases Matching exercise and Linking sequence, which improve your reaction speed and attack/counterattack skills. Lastly, the Xingyiquan sequence and each of the twelve animal forms with martial applications are shown. This DVD compliments the book "Xingyiquan", by Master Liang Shou-Yu and Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming (YMAA). DVD Directed by Dr. Yang.

Review

As the authors point out, after the student has learned the basic postures, the 12 shapes form is usually taught. But here the authors did something different which was nice. They presented another form instead which is rarely seen, a combination of the five fists and the 12 animal shapes that was developed by Master Liang's teacher, Master Zheng... --Google

Hsing-I is probably the most powerful of all Chinese Martial arts and this dvd is an example to dvd makers on how to get your message across clearly and with no shenanigans. --Student viewer of the dvd...

After purchasing the rather brilliant book by the same title and same authors, I found the DVD to be quite a bit of a let down. Firstly, at almost £50, I was expecting at least a 2 dvd set. Instead this item is only a single disk set which leaves many areas contained within the book unrepresented. There is very little mention of the philosophy behind xingy or any coverage of the excellant chi kung excercises. The five element forms are demonstrated and demonstrated well but with no actual examples of their martial usage as given in the book. However, unlike the book we are presented with some excellant full demostrations of all of the 12 animal forms but again only limited use is made of their marital applications. My main gripe is that in order to do the book any real justice this should definitely been made into a 2 dvd set which would also be more representative of its price tag!

Studied this martial art a few years ago but was unable to continue at the time. Have now been able to restart my learning. Clear and concise instruction with good demonstration.
