The Xing yi masters have knowledge and skills of various forms Kung fu which originated from different persons. The renowned masters trained soldiers to apply this art of fighting during times of war in the Southern Song Dynasty. This type of Kung Fu was widely accepted as wounded soldiers could not exercise GongFu-a conventional and popular way of fighting during combat. The soldiers had to learn this art in order to defend their territories.A renowned patriotic Chinese general who braved many wars found it advantageous to train and enhance his soldiers’ art of war by applying Xingyi fist form. This form is a witty blending of Wuxing with actions imitating the motion of specific animals. This art evolved from making subtle movements to using the mind to control the inner and outer actions.



The name, Xingyi Fist, was founded by a respected Guo Yunsheng who is credited for refining the art of fighting. He is regarded for modernizing it to include the five major constituents; metal, wood, water, fire and earth. This is also known as Wuxing in Chinese lingo and is similar to the five forms of Xingyi Fist; chopping, Beng, Zuan, Pao and Heng fist. The associated theories inspired the Xingyi Fist and accompanying weaponry. The whole concept is based on contemporary Chinese doctrine,Moreover, there are other twelve imitative techniques which are based on the movements of the following animals; the dragon, tiger, horse, cork, pear, sparrow, hawk, monkey, eagle, swallow, crane, cat, and snake.,
