Xingyi Pi Quan

This video covers the first in the creative cycle Xingyi Pi Quan (劈)split. Several of the fist methods used in Pi are also used in the other four of the five elements. The ways in which the fists extend, how the fingers open and close, and correct alignment with the body are important for correct movement. With xingyi, everything is direct. The body moves all together, all at the same time.

Terri provides an introduction to pi quan along with some examples (do’s and don’ts) for practice.
