-Demonstrated by Li Bing.
Xing Yi Quan (Chinese: 形意拳; pinyin: Xíng Yì Quán; Wade–Giles: Hsing I Chuan) is classified as one of the Wudang styles of Chinese martial arts. The name of the art translates approximately to Form-Intention Fist, or Shape-Will Fist.[3]

Xing Yi is characterized by aggressive, seemingly linear movements and explosive power that's most often applied from a short range. A practitioner of Xing Yi uses coordinated movements to generate bursts of power intended to overwhelm the opponent, simultaneously attacking and defending.

Xingyi Ba Shi Quan (Eight Forms Boxing). Master Di Guo-Yong

I know they are already on youtube, but Di Guoyong is one of my favorite Xingyi Players and I like to learn more about Xingyi.

Acording to Legend the Xingyi Quan and Shaolin Xinyi Quan was created by Song Dynasty General and folk Hero Yue Fei. Its said he was instructed by his second teacher Zhou Tong in spearplay an archery. And by mastering the spearplay on a very high level he layed the foundation for later creationg the Xingyi Quan.

According to written information which survived to this day there is no source which states that it was like that. It is only said that he learned Archery from Zhou Tong and not Spearplay.
He should only have learned spearplay from his first teacher Chen Guang.

But Chinese History is very special. That something isnt recorded does not mean that it not might happen. So we cant know for sure.

Official history most likely credits the creation of Xingyi and Xinyi and also some other sets you also find in China or in the Shaolin Curriculuum to Ji Longfeng from Ming Dynasty.

Ji Longfeng( Or Ji Jike or also Ji Gong) was a highy respected Martial Artist who had nicknames as the Divine Spear or at the later part of his life even God of the Lance. Its said he travelled across China where he came to Shaolin temple. There the monks were impressed by his fighting skills and he was allowed to stay there. Which he did for ten years. In this years he should have created the Xinyi( Heart and Intention Boxing ) which had later been modifed to be Xingyi Quan by Li Nunneng.

形意拳真髓王树金 (The Essence of Xingyi Quan Wang Jin)

Xing Yi Quan features aggressive shocking attacks and direct footwork. Most of the training and footwork are practiced on straight lines. The linear nature of the art hints at both the military origins and the influence of spear technique alluded to in its mythology. The goal of the Xing Yi exponent is to reach the opponent quickly and drive power through them in a single burst. The analogy with spear fighting is useful here. This is achieved by coordinating one's body as a single unit, and the intense focusing of one's Intent (Yi 意) and coordinated power (Jin 劲) utilizing tight circles (usually in a forward direction). Issuing explosive power in Xing Yi is referred to as 'Fa Jin' (发劲).
