Yin Style Baguazhang (Xie Peiqi lineage)

Recommended Posts

i've only studied a little of this system and don't consider myself a teacher by any means. That said it's a daunting task to even just watch the videos considering how much time is required. Here is a Yin style beginner's guide and the guide author's new blog.

Also a list of local practice groups - be sure to e-mail the contact, not all groups are "alive" and practicing.

To start it's a good idea to know what Daoyin is and how to think about this art. Andrew Nugent-Head provided videos for a Daoyin seminar here.

Andrew Nugent-Head has also made almost the whole martial syllabus available for free.

For beginners check the Penetrating Palms with Liu Shichang.

Beginners should also look into the Lion system to start. This one is based off of using a large double ended spear.

If you would like an article about strengthening postures this one is good.

After putting some time into the Lion system then the Bear is next. The Bear system will allow one to develop short power similar to Chen taiji.

Once one has put in a good amount of time (probably about two years' worth of work) in Lion, Bear, and Penetrating Palms then the Dragon (what Cheng baguazhang is based on) is the next step. Dragon was formulated around a broadsword and is supposed to be continuous in its power. It also contains a number of strikes used to setup throws ala shuai jiao.

I have no idea how long one should put into Dragon as I only got to the Bear part of the syllabus but after the Dragon then the Phoenix is the next step and arguably one of the most difficult. Apparently this one is "removing" and is also a whipping type power.

Yes! When i first saw his videos i couldnt beleive how deep he was going into it. 1.5 - 2 hour videos on the system and plenty of them. I can tell his main objective is to get the system out there and known. he isnt like some who might charge you to watch this kind of stuff. Haha. So yah the more i look into the xeipeiqi system the more it seems like a bottomless pit of knowledge. Might train with one of the local groups one day, thats cool that theyre doing that.

Unfortunately the YouTube videos that were posted are no longer available.

 

However they have been transferred to the ATS website where they remain available for purchase at $50 each (the decision was taken sometime back to no longer offer things for free on his website.)
