This video has been digitally re-mastered from the original archival footage to enhance clarity and resolution. Additional footage from Multiple camera angles utilizing digital slow motion, at both one quarter and half speeds of live movement are portrayed for amazing insights into body mechanics never before seen on an instructional video. Additional voiceover scenes have also been added to the presentation. Together, these techniques are employed for a complete learning experience. This first video features the linear, expansion strength of the Ma (Horse) form and the swiftly countering, rending strikes of the Yao (Sparrow Hawk) form. The practice of Horse develops strength and solidity of technique and aids in dissipating excess Yang energy. The practice of SparrowHawk develops side to side coordination and benefits the breath. Exceedingly thorough sequential applications follow each form. Applications from all five levels of Hsing I application (striking, locking, throwing, nerve and cavity attacks) are featured in depth. These videos are by far the best instructional resources on the Hsing I Twelve Animals available today!
Running time = 36 minutes.
