Me too. Not a XingYi person myself but I like what I see.

Do not make the mistake of giving up the near in order to seek the far.

Very interesting flavor and distinct from the Xingyi lineages I've been exposed to. More emphasis on aliveness and hand speed rather than heavy, solid full-body power.

My guess is the 2 gentlemen showing applications belong to the Shanxi school.

This is a common problem in currrent Song Xingyi, hands are too fast.
And also hands shake too much in Piquan~

As a couple of people have guessed, these are guys from a Song style xingyi group in Fenyang in Shanxi province. Some of the ideas about usage are quite nice (especially at one point the guy talks about Single Horse [Dan Ma Xing]), definitely some value in there for other groups.

Shenfa 'flavour' is a little bit different than what I'm used to from Taigu (Song Guanghua, Song Baogui) but still good stuff.

I like the single horse application as well. The angle of the punch is almost like a wide boxing hook, which we don't often see in TCMA.

The guy with glasses gave me a few chuckles. There are always people like him who are eager to prove that their shit is better than yours whenever you go to a martial arts event. ;)

Hand speed and shaking actually don't bother me much, as it is a matter of stylistic difference and personal preference.

IMO, it's only a problem if the hands are unable to connect to the dantian at the moment of impact.
