Xing Yi is characterised by the ability to generate explosively, massive amounts of striking force at a minimal distance. This force is directed into your opponent's body to 'seal' their organs rather than being used to throw or push your opponent away as in some Tai Chi systems.
Most Xing Yi videos and YouTube movies just show form - they don't show you how to perform Nie Jia. The question therefore is: how do you test ifwhat your are doing is correct? How do you analyse in a cold, logical way if someone is actually doing Nei Jia or not? How do you learn to discern what is going on from a perspective of knowledge rather than mindlessly criticise?
Fundamental to the system taught at the Rose Li School is the concept that you must have insight into your practice rather than simply accumulating forms. Underlying the School's learning ethos is an understanding of the mechanism how force is generated within the body. This mechanism of generating force is a characteristic of the Rose Li School and the School's martial art ancestors from the Temple of the Fire God.
The Rose Li School, for the first time, has produced a video outlining the fundamental principles of how Xing Yi is practiced within the School. The video is the first in a series detailing the mechanism behind Nei Jia as taught within the School. This first video outlines the basic elements of Xing Yi rather than simply demonstrating forms. Once these basic principles are understood they then can be applied in a practical sense and analysed from the perspective of the physics of the system: for example, how body momentum is transferred to the target via wave form motion and how spiral motion of the body is then applied to this wave form. The video is approximately half an hour long and discusses:
The differences between internal and external force generation
How to generate force internally - the importance of the Central Equilibrium Stance
The 3 Characteristics of Nei Jia
Ming, An and Hua
The importance of alignment
Spherical wave-force generation
The first three forms of Xing Yi
The video, combined with Xing Yi Manual 3, will give you an excellent introduction to the methods and practices of the Nei Jia, and in particular Xing Yi, as taught at the Rose Li School.
