12 Animals of (Hebei style) Xingyiquan: FIGHTING CHICKEN

Xingyiquan ( Hsing I Ch'uan)

The Fighting Chicken is the sixth of the 12 Animals. The form emulates the day in the life of a chicken as it awakens mankind and rises for the day, searches for food, pecks its food, and ruffles its feathers, wards off, and rushes at a potential enemy. The movements are tight knit and well-connected to the center line. The hands both split and burst forth from the center, and the feet rise into the shins and mid-section, as well as fall with a stomp. The shape of the main form, "Chicken Pecks a Grain of Rice" emulates the written character in the Chinese calligraphy for Chicken.

This Hebei style of Hsing-I Ch'uan (Xing Yi Quan) is organized using 12 Animals that group and teach the martial characteristics of particular actions. Sample Applications from the 12 Animals: Nei Jia (Internal) Kung Fu Martial Application Example
