Techniques of Hsing-I & Pa-Kua

Chinese Internal Boxing: Techniques of Hsing-I and Pa-kua is the classic guide to two soft-style Chinese martial arts with ever-increasing popularity in the West. Chinese internal boxing does not depend on muscular strength. Instead, its power is drawn from the cultivation and practical application of internal energy, or ch'i, making it perfect for people of all ages and all levels of fitness.

With clear, easy-to-follow instructions and over 380 black-and-white photos and diagrams, this indispensible manual is ideal for both martial arts beginners and advanced practitioners. It describes in detail and fully illustrates the basic techniques of Hsing-I and Pa-kua, including the five fists and twelve animal styles of Hsing-I and Pa-kua's eight palm shapes and eight traditional methods of walking the circle.
