Liquid lightning: The Clear energy of XingYi Quan

Liquid lightning: The Clear energy of XingYi Quan


My friend Scott at the Tabby Cat blog has written a new article on XingYi. Unlike most articles which are concerned with the miniature of detail about how you move the arms and legs, this one is more about what you’re supposed to feel going on inside.

Read it and give it a go!

It’s not the fashion these days to talk about what you should feel in martial arts – as a people we seem more concerned with breaking down which muscle is doing what, or what force vector is going where. So, it’s refreshing to throw that all out and get back to the way Chinese Martial Arts were always taught in the past, which is to get the feel of something, not work it out intellectually.
