Learning Xingyi Water

Some will start teaching Hsing Yi with the element Water, rather than the more popular introduction of Metal (Axe Hand). One uses Water in setting up the energy for Metal. Water springs up like lightning. Hsing Yi animals Dove and Snake are similar as is a move in Eagle-Bear.

Practicing Water strengthens the Kidneys.

The upward forward arm strike can be used as a block, as well as a strike; as in a dynamic striking-block (cover).

In Xingyi Water (Zuan) the front hand first goes from palm upward then overturns to palm downward block, as one would overturn a cup of water. This is then passed and collected by the rear hand rooted below the ground and strikes with a spurting energy springing upward while stepping forward.

This is the root platform from which the springing rising hand strikes in an uppercut.

The beginning downward block is followed by a stepping uppercut. This change of direction aids the penetration through the opponent's reaction and energy.

One lowers their center of gravity, by rooting their stance deep beneath the ground. One can check the advance of an opponent, or pin his position with this uppercut.

In Water (Zuan) the front hand first goes from an upward palm to a downward block. This change is done as one would overturn a cup of water, so the Qi in the palm of the front hand is transferred to the other rear hand. When it is collected by rear hand, you sink with an outward to inward twistof the foot; rooted on or below the ground. The rear hand which becomes the right (front) hand, strikes with a spurting energy springing upward.

Internal power is gathered by the rear-hand: draw the energy in toward the Lower Dan Tien; as the palm downward-hand turns down and inward to a palm upward uppercut; inhaling. The rear strike will be more rooted, by next pooling this transferred-gathered energy beneath the ground of the rear foot, up to six feet below the surface.

A book that teaches about Qi and internal energy for use in Xingyi that also uses Tai Chi and Qigong, it includes detailed multiple angled photos of the Xingyi Five Elements and descriptions of the Animals: Axe Hand; Hsing-i & Internal Strength Workout:

Hupei (Hubei) Style of Xingyi, learned from Grand Master Wong Jack Man.
