View Full Version : Duration of Zhang Zhuang (or Santi, etc.)

02-13-2001, 03:48 PM
Dear All:

Che style xingyiquan advocates santi-ing no more than 40 minutes, whereas Yi Quan seems to go Zhang Zhuang forever. This most basic and powerful exercise is ambiguous concerning the issue of duration. :confused:

I hope some people can shed light on this issue, and also manage to tell me WHY standing longer is considered bad in some styles, and WHY standing longer is good in others. :)
