Hebei Ying Quan: Jiben Gong Training & Bazi Gong (Foundation Training & Eight Skills)
Xing Yi Quan is one of the major Internal Styles and is distinguished by its stable posture and crisp explosive power. Master Scrima will teach San Ti Shi (Trinity Posture) and some fundamental techniques to lay the groundwork for other training. The focus of this session will be on Ba Zi Gong or Eight Skills. These were created in the early 1900's at the Baoding Military Academy and they are regarded as integral training in the Xing Yi curriculum. It is said 'Xing Yi Wei Ti, Ba Zi Gong Wei Yong,' or Xing Yi trains the body and Ba Zi Gong trains the application/fighting'.
