The intermediate Xingyi quan Competition Routine is examined and approved by the Chinese Sports Administration, Chinese Wushu Research Institute and Chinese Wushu Management Center. It consists of six parts and 48 movements, with rich content and reasonable, various structure changing and high sophistication. Basically, it contains the hand techniques and footwork as well as leg techniques and jumping, etc., of traditional xingyi quan, which means that it maintains the main skills from five elements, twelve-style quan, advancing and retreating continuous quan, four-technique quan and mixture-styles quan. It has the continuous, compact characteristic in practicing, and it is a quite comprehensive routine.

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.
