Nice Xinyi Liuhe applications vid - Man Wenjie, Shanghai

Postby nicklinjm on Sat Nov 17, 2018 6:11 am

Just came across a very nice video of a Shanghai Xinyi Liuhe teacher showing some of the basic XYLH forms (Yao shan ba, single seize, tiger, snake) and also at least 20 mins of various examples of usage / application:



Don't know the teacher, but he allows his students to try out all sorts of locks / throws etc on him (at one point a student even tries a choke and a kind of double shoot), and the way he deals with the attacks shows how XYLH got its reputation as a 'fierce' (hen, daidu) art, lots of short power elbows and knees, looks like it would be very nasty if he hit you full force with one of those.

Thanks for the video.

Brought back memories of me with my old xylh sifu & having him throw me around even though I was much larger than he was. The students in the video are not trying to kill him but are not taking it easy like other tofu videos. Plus they do get how to apply some of the moves. He does a nice job of responding using xylh frame. Even though everyone is laughing & his moves look relaxed I think the short strikes mixed in with counters that can snap bone would damn hurt.

Nothing impressive there
Don't put power into the form let it naturally arise from the form

Well said kungfu saying

打人三節不見形。能見形影不為能。
步步卷地風。

Beautiful saying!!

I got some nice nostalgia out of it & thought it was useable stuff that he shows. Nothing was earth shattering but for reference - which if any videos have impressed you?

I get the feel the teacher/master has an realaxed but solid attitude in his skill and toward his students ……Impressed !? I don’t know what he should have to do to be impressive.…Couple of days ago when taking a walk around the block, I passed an old man who had flung up one of his legs agains a lamp post and in so doing a full split, i gave him thumbs up because it was slightly impressive because he was old. Maybe that’s what missing in the OP vid……But as I said I haven’t seen much XYLH so there might be vids out there that’s on another level.

Most of his stuff was in a large courtyard
