First time at the Academy—Mind Intent Boxing:

XY1A Six Week Course in Xing Yi Quan
Experience the elemental!
Join our six-week seminar course and experience one of China’s most profound ancestor styles. Xing Yi is symbolically named for the interplay of the Five Elements, an ancient pattern of change recognized in Chinese philosophy and medical theory. The name Xing Yi means “Intent and Shape” referring to the mind processing combat’s endless and instantaneous changes. A beautiful combination of martial and qigong arts. Class starts Friday, March 6, 6-7 pm. Click HERE for more information about the class.

    Here’s hoping the Xing Yi seminary will generate a book/DVD combo like that Ba Gua did!
