Xing Yi Quan is a traditional combat oriented style of martial arts from China.

Xing is translated as “Shape or Form”, Yi is translated as “Will or Intention” and Quan is usually translated as “Boxing or Martial Arts Style”.

The name refers to hiding your intention from your opponent while you see their intention. It also highlights the importance of cultivating your will power.

Xing Yi Quan is known as a power punching style

Although you might think all martial arts styles focus on power punching, they donʼt. Some styles are strong on kicking like Northern Shaolin, others focus on speed and accuracy like Praying Mantis. While yet others focus on joint manipulation like Eagle Claw, or throwing like Shaui Jiao. All these styles of Kung Fu have punches, kicks, joint locking, throws and fast strikes including Xing Yi Quan. However, Xing Yi Quan specializes in powerful strikes that have a shocking penetrating quality.
