Learn the Xing Yi 12 Animals with Xing Yi Academy
There is an amazing variety within Xing Yi Quan and most of this variety is found within the practice of the animal styles. Each animal is almost an entire martial art in itself. Learn the strategy, structure, body mechanics, force generation, techniques and applications.
Xing Yi Academy is led by Paul Andrews, an instructor with over 20 years experience in Chinese Martial Arts, having studied in the UK, USA, and China. Xing Yi Quan is his specialism and his school focuses heavily on teaching the 12 animals.
Come learn with Paul, each week he will present a new aspect of one of the Xing Yi Animals.
Learn the strategy of each animal - how it applies the body mechanics and force generation in both defensive and offensive methods.
Understand the structure of the stances - learn to become robust but flexible, how to adapt your stance and structure to different situations.
Develop the force generation - learn to really express energy through your body and create effective striking, kicking and takedown power.
Embody the body mechanics - learn to control the body, coordinate the footwork, waist and torso. Change the movement patterns with different animals to become agile, evasive, direct, and imposing.
Learn all of the animals of Xing Yi, including additional extra animals - Wildcat and Crane.
