Instructional DVDs on Xingyi (hsingi).
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 video contains the five elemental combinative form of Ba Shih (Eight Methods). This form will teach the Hsing I practitioner methods of combining the Five Forces Elemental movements for practical usage and develop further understanding of the Five Forces. Also contained in this video is the form of San Guan Chuan (Dual Hand Fist) which is one of the oldest sequential forms in the Hsing I System. The practice of San Guan Chuan will instill fundamental qualities of the Twelve Animals of Hsing I as well as develop higher level footwork. We utilized multiple camera angles to portray the forms fully, at very slow speed utilizing voiceover to point out potential trouble spots. The linked forms are presented once at normal practice speed and also once in digital slow motion, at one quarter live speed, so that you may see the true measure of the body mechanics, continuity and fluidity of the method. A thorough, sequential breakdown of the applications follow each form. This is a must for the Hsing I enthusiast. A very helpful video for the intermediate to advanced practitioner striving to understand the main concepts of Hsing I movement structures.
