Xing Yi Quan is classified as one of the Wudang styles of Chinese martial arts. The name of the art translates approximately to "Form-Intention Fist", or "Shape-Will Fist".
Xing Yi is characterized by aggressive, seemingly linear movements and explosive power that's most often applied from a short range. A practitioner of Xing Yi uses coordinated movements to generate bursts of power intended to overwhelm the opponent, simultaneously attacking and defending. Methods vary from school to school, but always include bare-handed fighting training (mostly in single movements/combinations and sometimes in forms) and the training of weapons usage with similar or identical body mechanics to that used for bare-handed fighting. The most basic notions of movement and body mechanics in the art were heavily influenced by the practice of staffs and spears. Historically and technically related martial arts include Dai Xin Yi Liu He Quan, Liu He Xin Yi Quan or Yi Quan.
Master Yu Weidong picked up Xingyi Fist since he was a young boy and is the 6th inheritor of Xingyi Quan. He is good at Xingyi bagua and Xingyi tai chi and won a lot of honor and reputation during his learning and teaching life. He does a lot in helping Xingyi Quan to walk to every corner of the world and be known by every Wushu enthusiast.
