Xingyi twelve hong chui uses fists (big hammer) throughout the routine. It includes advancing, retreating, rotating and turning, or bundling, unfolding, withdrawing and sending. There are both basic techniques and advance skills for this routine. The demonstrator, Master Li Hong, is a seventh Dan of Chinese wushu and the second generation headmaster of Shang-style xingyiquan.

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.
