The stake exercise includes the healthcare stake (parallel step) and actual combat stake (oblique T-step). The essential points of the stake exercises: focusing attention, relaxing body and breathing naturally. The aim of try force is to invigorate the force you have obtained in stake exercises and to use it freely. The important thing about try force is that slowness is better than quickness. While the stake exercise is relatively still, the try force is about even movement.

Yi quan, also known as dacheng quan, is a martial art system founded by the Chinese xingyiquan master, Wang Xiangzhai in 1920s. Derived from xingyiquan, yi quan discarded its “xing” (meaning form) part to emphasize the essence of true martial power. Yi quan is essentially formless, containing no fixed sets of fighting movements or techniques. Instead, yi quan focuses on developing one’s natural movement and fighting abilities. Yi quan is also unique for its discarding of traditional martial arts concepts, like qi, meridians, dan tian etc. to make way for new explanations and ideas rooted in Western science, medicine and psychology.

The actual training in yi quan can generally be divided into the following: Zhan zhuang — stake exercise or motionless postures; Shi li — try force or slow moving exercises; Moca bu — Shi li for the legs; Fa li — Exercises that teach the use of explosive force; Shi Sheng — Breathing exercises or testing sound, including shouting; Tui shou — Pushing hands; San shou — Free fighting practice; and Duan shou — Break hand, fighting techniques including strikes and kicks.
