Lihua Qiang reaches back to Dong Bingqian, who taught it to Wang Zhongjin. Nowadays it is still vivid in Henan province.
Main characteristics of this weapon are straight movements of an up to 2.80m (approx. 9 feet) long and heavy long stick. Keeping the correct position makes great demands on the student.

The spear guide is based on the basis of the winding rod. His exercise promotes internal crosslinking of the body and forms an understanding of the power transmission in Xingyiquan.


Xingyiquan, the box art of the form (Xing) and awareness (Yi), has evolved out from the spear art, and it´s based on the five 5 phases (metal, water, wood, fire, earth) and 12 animals. The basic principle is based on the contraction (save the power) and expand (release of the power) as well as the connection of the power

Essential for the Xingyiquan the footwork, connected to a holistic force, in which speed, suddenness, indomitablity and solidity play a major role.
