Explosive Offensive Internal Power
YMAA Boston, Jamaica Plain, MA - July 31st, 2011, 9:00am - 5:00pm
Xingyiquan is a popularly known internal art whose creation is credited to Marshall Yue Fei of the Song Dynasty. It is also known as "Form Boxing," and is based on the movements and inner characteristics of 12 animals. Considered a military style, Xingyiquan consists of aggressive offensive and defensive techniques with explosive bursts of power. This seminar teaches foundation, theory, footwork, 2-person drills, and Five Element Fists.


This seminar will focus on teaching a strong foundation to Xingyiquan practice. During the seminar, we will be discussing:
  • Brief history and theory of Xingyiquan
  • Foundation work for beginning to intermediate students
  • Proper footwork and rooting
  • 2-person drills
  • The Five Elements Fists


YMAA instructor Ken Craggs studied Xingyiquan for many years under Tai Ngo, who is a disciple and longtime student of Dr. Yang. Paul Green, who has studied White Crane, Long Fist, and Chin Na at YMAA for over 10 years, will be assisting Ken.


Everybody is welcome to attend this Xingyiquan seminar. Previous martial arts experience is a plus, but not required. Attendance is limited, so register soon. This seminar will benefit:
  • Martial artists of all styles who would like to learn the internal art of Xingyiquan
  • Beginning and intermediate Xingyiquan practitioners wishing to solidify their foundation and practice
  • Practitioners who want to learn the Five Elements Fists in a structured and well-paced manner


We recommend wearing loose practice clothing (T-shirt and pants) and a pair of indoor shoes, unless you prefer training barefoot or in socks. Street shoes are not permitted on the training floor.
