The four-technique quan of cock style is also called four techniques in short. It is a traditional routine in Xingyi quan. Due to its cock style and the fact that there are four techniques inside, people call it Four-technique Quan of Cock Style. This routine is prudent and vividly shows the features of a cock, like the capability of standing on one foot, the movement of pecking a grain of rice, the style of shaking plume and the courage of fighting. In this DVD, it shows all the hand techniques of attacking and defending. It is good for both practicing and fighting.

Xingyi quan is one of the three major “internal” Chinese martial arts. The other two are Taiji quan and Baguazhang. Xingyi quan translates approximately to “Form/Intention Boxing”, or “Shape/Will Boxing”, and is characterized by aggressive, seemingly linear movements and explosive power. Its origins are traceable to the 18th century and may go back even further. There is no single organizational body governing the teaching of the art, and several variant styles exist.

A Xingyi quan fighter uses efficient coordinated movements to generate bursts of power intended to overwhelm the opponent, simultaneously attacking and defending. Forms vary from school to school, but include barehanded sequences and versions of the same sequences with a variety of weapons. These sequences are based upon the movements and fighting behavior of a variety of animals. The training methods allow the student to progress through increasing difficulty in form sequences, timing and fighting strategy.
