Xingyi Beng Quan
Foundations and Dynamics (Intermediate, Advanced)
This video covers the third in the creative cycle Xingyi Beng Quan (崩）burst. The underlying movement in burst is that of a penetrating hammer, directly striking the target. The focus in this segment is on developing skill with this technique, not on the basics. The turn for continuous practice is from the Dragon, one of Xingyiquan’s 12 animals. It is also one of Wudang’s 3 Basic Methods.
Terri discusses the simplicity of Beng, and it’s effectiveness together with the concept of ‘one perfect move.’
