Introduction to Xing Yi Quan
Xing Yi Quan is one of the three major internal Martials Arts, namely Xing Yi, Ba Gua & Tai Chi. the history of Xing Yi Quan dates back to the Ming dynasty, more than 300 hundred years ago.
Xing Yi Quan is commonly referred to as Form and Mind boxing. The name illustrates the strong emphasis placed on the motion of the body being subordinate to conscious control. The form the body takes is an external manifestation of the internal state of mind, and is the underlying premise behind Xing Yi Quan as a method of combat.

Movements are simple and easy to learn, and practitioners can practise the art at their own level of capability. It is excellent for building physical as well as mental strength.
