Xing Yi Quan – Striking from Emptiness

In the very moment we expect something, we tend to overextend. This is very normal. Xing Yi Quan, can be a great tool to improve our skills in “non-expectation”. By observing our overextending reactions we can learn step by step to release from them. What is very useful for our daily lifes, is also very necessary for building up a relaxed and efficient striking method. How can we get soft and powerful at the same time, when we stuck in old body habits and expectations? The art is to let go of “winning and losing” and instead give our self to the hidden values (xuan de) of our practice. In these we start to embrace failure as an important way companion and give our self to an endless, targetless journey… that ultimately leads into emptiness.
