Probably the most exhaustive book on the Chinese kungfu style of Xingyi quan ever written, and certainly ever translated. In this first volume, Di Guoyong describes in detail how to perform and better understand the five elemental fists of splittling, crushing, drilling, pounding, and crossing. Includes detailed description of movements and variations, plus power generation, applications, breathing, and teaching and training suggestions. Translated by Andrea Falk, who knows the system and Di's specific style through years of training in Beijing. This is the EPUB edition. Chinese characters and pinyin pronunciation have been taken out. If you would like the Chinese characters and pinyin, you should get the print book or the PDF edition, available from tgl books.
