    I study Hebei Xing Yi as well.

    It's strange for me to see so many that practice Hebei XY. I was under the impression that Shanxi (sp?) was much more popular.

    5 or 6 years now. What I really like is the directness of the style.

    @PHB: I don't know many Xingyi practicionners, but those I know seem to be split 50-50 in Shanxii and Hebei. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe Hebei is the most popular lineage in China.

    thanks in advance!

    Interesting, must just be some kink in my exposure. Either that or I'm just not paying enough attention! I have no idea what's popular in China, though.

    Lucas, there's a lot of good Xing Yi footage on the DPGDPG Youtube channel. Though I'm sure it's well known around here, here's the link:

    Not aware of any good literary links, though.

    Someone made comment as, "In XingYi, the body leads the arm. In WC, the arm leads the body". I don't think "20ch 6dfv" and "snake engine" can apply to XingYi at all.

    I've noticed that people usually compare Xing Yi and Wing Chun, usually commenting on "centerline strategy". I don't really get it. Offensive pressure on the centerline is hardly an uncommon trait. I don't know why parallels get drawn between any martial art and Wing Chun based purely on centerline strategy or use of a Sun fist. Note I'm not suggesting that you're basing your comparison on that, it's just a bit of a curiosity to me that your comment brought to mind. Admittedly, I have no experience in training in Wing Chun, so I may be missing some key element in the comparison.

    Thanks for the link punch
    You're welcome!

    Hsing-I seemed like the most natural, practical and reasonable system I've ever studied. It changed my life. I use the mechanics everyday for some task while thinking practically and efficiently. Good stuff. Powerful.

    to me it seems like the mechanics of xing yi can be applied when needed to all the other styles which is really cool
