    ha ha ha ... yeh he took some shots to the gob last night ... i agree center line need to be better protected. He is quite a strong guy actually some of the others here have trained with him a little.

    the work we were doing was focusing on subtle skills and fine lines of attack so the effect is that you fall onto the strikes .... still basic stuf though.

    my wish............

    Hi Middleway,

    I wish you would show a clip of you performing the 5 fists in a more traditional way.

    ie just the straight line teachnique as i'm sure it was originally taught to you, without a partner or any application.

    Formal Wu Xing Quan, or just one of the fists.

    go on....you know you want to ;)

    oki doki ...

    Here is Pi ... and the other video of all 5 is just uploading.


    I am one sloppy form person i am affraid to say! ;)

    will post the full 5 when its uploaded.

    The reason i dont post much form is ... firstly i am rubbish at it .. and secondly there is so much 'forms' on the net already.

    hi Chris,

    Sorry i've been away training with my Sifu for the past couple of weeks, and didn't see your latest posts.

    You've now removed the clips. Any chance you might pop them up again?

    You see,

    If I spent more time on here and less time training, i'd have seen your clip.

    Any chance of reposting it? or can I just come along to your class and see you some time?

    Pm me if you like.

    Why start a thread about video clips and then remove the clips from YouTube? Not a single one of the links worked. Bizarre.

    ah ... well the thread was started to see if other Xing yiers wanted to share some clips. no one did ... although i dont think there are many people that do xing yi here.

    here is my youtube channel. I have 'cleaned it up a bit' removing some old videos and just leaving ones that i think are worth showing. hence the videos disappearing.


    as you can see this thread didnt go anywhere really. no one else posted any videos ... no one really talked about the videos, just asked for more. so i didnt think people would miss them ...

    anyways. I dont mind putting them back up if its really that important?

    Sorry Chris,
    I forgot to activate it. Duh!

    Yep, you can ask who my teacher is! haha!
    I'll tell you when I see you, but my Master is from Wan Lai Sheng lineage.

    I'll pm you.

    I like it! You are trying to develop the focus of forward energy to the opponent.

    You do this in the bridge practice to? Meaning do you do something like Chi Sau?

    p.s. If I had a camera,I would post, and if I knew what to do! Only reason I don't have a camera is the cost and I would not use one that much.
