Hsing-I fist postures fighting applications are powerful and extremely practical. This DVD offers two-and-a-half hours of detailed instruction on the self-defense applications of Xingyi’s Five Fist Postures.
You will go into a workshop and learn along with Sifu Ken Gullette’s students. Each of the fist postures — Pi Chuan, Tsuan Chuan, Peng Chuan, Pao Chuan and Heng Chuan — are broken down to not only teach you the basic and obvious fighting techniques, but also techniques that are hidden inside the movements. You will learn hand strikes, punches, angles, joint locks, blocks, deflections, and much more — all with an emphasis on internal body mechanics.
When practicing the fist postures for self-defense, it is important to capture the essence of each fist posture — Splitting like an axe, drilling like a rush of water, a crushing punch, an exploding block and upward strike, and a crossing movement.
Ken shows a lot more than just techniques and movements. He teaches the body mechanics you need to know for high-quality internal kung-fu. By the time you get through with this DVD, you will know how to unlock the secrets of the fist postures. The techniques you will learn are real-life fighting applications for real-life self-defense.
As usual, Ken strips the mystical away and shows you the physical skills that represent the true nature of the internal martial arts.
