Hi Everyone,

This Summer I will release a live DVD Training Program for Hsing-i, Santi and the standing postures of I Chuan. In my opinion these practices are ‘the fastest way to build your Chi and martial power’.

Hsing-i is the least known of the three main internal martial arts (the other two being tai chi and bagua). It is the most yang of the internal martial arts and with consistent practice can rapidly make the body healthy and strong.  Each of the five core movements correspond to one of the elements within Chinese Medicine’s Five Element Theory.

I Chuan was derived from hsing-i and involves standing in specific postures to open up the chi in your body. I am happy to be releasing this material and hope that more discover the amazing benefits of Hsing-i and I Chuan.



P.S. This DVD set will have lots of useful information for anyone practicing qigong and tai chi for health even if you are not a martial artist…Join the Hsing-i Launch List

In my opinion, Santi is much stronger and more effective at chi development than any of the standing tai chi postures or any of the standing qigong postures… Read More
