Martial Arts - Chinese Martial Arts
Over the years, Muay Thai has progressed as both a martial art and a style, attracting people from all over the world.
Are you looking for the information on the following:
| All around the world, Chinese martial arts are both well known and well
respected. In fact, China is a pioneer in the martial arts area, founding
several excellent styles. Although Kung Fu
is the most well known Chinese martial art, there are others that are just as
good. Below, we will look at some of the other Chinese
martial arts that aren't as well known as Kung Fu.
This is actually one of the internal styles of Kung Fu, very closely in relation to Tai Chi. It teaches students to subordinate their
bodies, creating powerful movements with a very little expense of
energy. Hsing-I isn't that well known, although it is a very powerful technique and well known throughout China. The United
States and other areas aren't that familiar with it, with little to no schools or dojo's out there that teach it.
Just like Tai
Chi, Hsing-I has very deep roots in Chinese medicine and the
Chinese perceptions of nature. The blows that come from
Hsing-I come from the five elements of the Chinese - metal, fire, earth, water,
Similar to other forms that originate
from Kung Fu, Hsing-I offers complex, almost dance-like movements that
are adapted from the way animals react and move. Due to the
training being so demanding and rigorous, and the breathing exercises
being so demanding, those who practice this martial art commonly have
astounding physical skills and amazing endurance.
To those who live outside of China, Tai Chi
resembles more of a dance. The slow and calm movements it teaches are balanced
and exact, performed while the stylist is in a deep state of
relaxation. While in this deep state of relaxation, the
stylist will be fully aware of what he is doing and his movements,
although he will appear to those around him to almost be asleep.
In fact, Tai Chi is a high energy exercise
that promotes strength, stamina, and flexibility. By using the deep state of
relaxation, Tai Chi enables stylists to benefit emotionally and
spiritually as well. Tai Chi also uses deep states of
mediation as well, helping stylists to learn how to reach their high
level of peace.
Chinese martial arts
Even though Kung Fu is the best martial art in China, there are many
different forms and styles that originate from it. There is
the Shaolin style as
well, which offers several different styles of
Kung Fu as well, including the world famous "5 animals
system". The "five
animals of kung fu" is among the most popular in China and well known around the world for their devastating
techniques and amazing power when used in combat.
Along with Kung Fu, both Hsing-I and Tai Chi are great martial
arts that help with endurance training and flexibility. A lot of
Kung Fu students in China choose to study one of these arts as well, as
it helps to add to their physical and emotional power.
Students who study Tai Chi or Hsing-I as well as Kung Fu, have a higher
state of endurance and spirituality that simply cannot be matched.
All around the world, China is well known for martial arts.
China brought Kung Fu and Tai Chi to the world, which is something we
are all thankful for. Even though Japan has long offered
their unique blend of martial arts, many consider China to be the founding father of
martial arts. The Chinese have been using martial arts for
hundreds of years - providing just how dominant it can be as a means of
self defense and a way to live your life in a peaceful manner.
