Hsing-I Chuan (Xing Yi Quan) is a Chinese boxing style of Taoist origin.   It's name literally translates as ‘mind form boxing’, although it should be ‘heart and mind boxing’, as it is the heart that controls the emotions and it is that which fires the body’s initial responses.


Hsing-I is an internal art that is concerned with life, health and creativity rather than death, destruction and swelling of the self-ego; which is so often the focus of most martial training today. It's movements are simple to look at and learn, but hard to master. It is straight forward and direct in it's actions, combining both soft and hard movements, therefore, it conforms to the Taoist principle of Yin/Yang.


Hsing-I is excellent for conditioning the body internally and externally. The practise of it's forms develops balance, coordination, timing and strong muscles.   The actions of the techniques open and stretch the muscles and joints to their full range and encourage increased Chi and blood flow, which in turn nourishes the tissues and benefits the health.


Hsing-I can be practised in both an energetic or gentle manner. With this in mind, people of all ages can train throughout their lives and it can be adapted to all abilities. Over time, the practise of Hsing-I will develop an internal awareness of oneself, helping the physical body to reconnect with the mind, which in today’s stressful lifestyles most people have lost. Practitioners should become better with practise and never become too old to practise!

The Hsing-I syllabus includes the Five Elements Forms, Twelve Animal forms, Five Element Two Man Fighting Form, Combination Forms, Staff Form, Practical and Advanced Fighting Applications and several Hsing-I related health cultivation practices. 


Te regular weekly class is an excellent choice for any person wishing to start their study of the internal martial arts and will give a sound foundation from which to progress. The training emphasizes improving each student’s skills individually even though it is taught in a group setting. The class is suitable for all levels and for both male and female students. It is taught in a friendly but professional and respectful atmosphere.


Private lessons for individuals or groups covering the full Hsing-I syllabus can also be arranged. See timetable and prices page or contact us to discuss any queries further.
