Components of the Xinyi-Dao System

  • Shaolin Kung Fu is an external martial art style which means the focus is on conditioning the physical body through exercises and forms designed to strengthen and tone muscles, bones, tendons, and ligaments.

  • Taiji Quan is an internal martial art style which means the focus is on cultivating internal energy that strengthens internal organs, improves blood circulation, deepens breathing, focuses the mind. This martial art style uses slow movement and is well-known in the western world and often recommended by health practitioners for improving overall physical health.

  • Bagua Zhang is an internal martial art style that uses circular stepping patterns and coiling body motions to deflect an opponent’s attack. The style was created by master Dong Hai-Chuan in the Qing Dynasty and is based on the I Ching or Book of Changes. Because of its unique circular and coiling physical movements, it is also very beneficial for health.

  • Xingyi Quan is an internal martial art style that uses aggressive straight-line attacks. It has been used for over several hundred years in the training of soldiers and bodyguards in China. The style is based on the five elements theory and mimics the natural attacking movements of twelve major animals.

  • Dai Style Xinyi Quan is the precursor to Xingyi Quan. Its deep focus is on developing whole body power through building the body’s core engine (dantian), and then applying this unique body/power structure for close range striking using the head, shoulders, elbows, hips, knees, and feet. The transmission of this art has been a closed-door secret for hundreds of years until the 1980s, and even today there are only a handful of masters who are teaching this art.
