Xingyi twelve-style quan is derived from the living style and fighting form of 12 animals, including dragon, tiger, monkey, horse, crocodile, cock, swallow, sparrow hawk, snake, Falcon, eagle and bear. Adding more hand and leg techniques makes it richer and more powerful.

Xingyi twelve-style quan derived from xingyi quan (xingyi liuhe quan ) with 10 big forms as dragon, monkey, horse, cock, swallow, sparrow hawk, snake eagle and bear. It was passed down by Dai Longbang. The originator of xingyi quan, Li Luoneng added crocodile style and falcon style to create xingyi quan and made it like xingyi quan. But they are different in many theories and xinyi quan is more complete in combat skills.

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.
