This DVD demonstrates hunyuan (applying balanced power) Sanshou quan’s techniques in a real combat. It includes the technique combination of Shaolin, long fist (chang quan), short fist (duan quan), through arm (tong bi), turn over fist (fanzi quan), mantis boxing (tanglang quan) and xingyi quan, and can be regarded as a collection of specimens of traditional Sanshou.

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.
