Hsing-I: Fire and Earth Fists
October 27, 2018 - October 28, 2018
Expanding on the previous year’s Hsing-I teachings in Ulm/Neu Ulm, Bruce will cover the next two elements—Fire and Earth—Pao Chuan and Heng Chuan fists.
Although Hsing-i is known mainly as an internal martial art form, it is in fact one of the most powerful health practices on the planet. Hsing-i has two main goals:
- To make your mind calm, focused and unwavering. This is useful whether you are in the office, engaging in martial arts, training in a sport or practicing meditation of some kind.
- To get your consciousness fully in your body and have the physical body properly aligned. Once your body is correctly aligned, it has the potential for qi to flow freely. You tap into the qi already there, develop more of it and build reserves for internal power.

In this course, Bruce will cover the next two elements of Hsing-I, Fire and Earth, also known as Pao Chuan and Heng Chuan fists.
Hsingi Pao Chuan: Fire Fist
This hsing-i technique focuses on diagonal physical motion, and uses the internal energies of Ward Off, Roll Back, Press Forward, Push Downward and Pull Down. In Pao Chuan, one hand initially defends and shifts the opponent’s center of balance. Then concentrates on moving power diagonally in all directions and on explosive forward-moving power.
In addition to its basic chi work, the internal pressures initiated in the body by this movement diecrtly affect the heart and pericardium in a beneficial manner. Represented by the Fire Element practicing Pao Chuan develops a body capable of making rapid changes while maintaining stillness inside.
Hsingi Heng Chuan: Earth Fist
This hsing-i technique focuses on the inside of the fist moving horizontally. Heng Chuan is the most difficult of the Five Elements to do well. Heng Chuan focuses on horizontally moving power, and combines the energies and applications of the first four elements (pi, tsuan, beng and pao) into one seamless technique
In addition to its basic chi work, the internal pressures initiated in the body by this movement directly affect the spleen, pancreas, and stomach in a beneficial manner. Represented by the Earth Element practicing Heng Chuan develops a body capable of integrating many different forces, energies, emotions and/or ideas simultaneously.
