Xing Yi

Xing Yi (Will/Mind Boxing) is the oldest of the internal arts. It predates Ba Gua and Tai Chi. The art has its roots in the use of weapons. Its founder, Ji Long Feng was an expert in the spear. It is said that he was always able to defend himself against numerous assailant with the spear. Later he realized that without his weapon of choice, he was defensless and created Xing Yi to protect himself.

Xing Yi is not as difficult to learn as tai chi or ba gua. The system is very simple as far as forms is concerned. However, to master the art takes a lifetime.
