Xinyiquan is legendary created by Ji Jike, a martial artist in the late Ming and early Qing Dynasties. Since the foreigners came to the Central Plains, there was a strong anti-Qing thought at that time. Later, after arriving at the Shaolin Temple in Henan Province, they stayed there to teach because of their excellent martial arts. During their stay, they studied deeply the Five Elements Quan which was prevalent in Shaolin in the Ming Dynasty. Then one day, when the two chickens were fighting, they realized their reason and created a six-in-one relationship. Later, Xinyi Liuhequan has been a major branch of Henan Xinyi Liuhequan for hundreds of years since it was passed down from Luoyang personage Ma Xueli.
When practicing mind boxing, there are requirements of "outside three-in-one" and "inside three-in-one". The so-called "three-in-one" refers to "shoulder and crotch, elbow and knee, hand and foot", that is, all parts of the body should cooperate with each other in the exercise of boxing; while the "three-in-one" refers to "mind and agreement, will and Qi, Qi and strength", that is to say, it is the combination of inner mood and punch, strength and so on, that the power can be exerted. The exercise route of Xinyiquan is mainly straight forward and backward, and the footwork is steady and solid. The ten shapes of Xinyiquan imitate the actions of dragon, tiger, horse, monkey, chicken, kite, swallow, snake, bear and eagle in attacking, crossing, hunting and dodging. They have obvious offensive and defensive consciousness. Each shape has its own unique meaning. In terms of recruiting style, they are mostly single-form, while the routine only has four beats and one set, and there are also two and a half created by later generations, and so on. PS: Six-in-one also refers to the combination of chicken leg, eagle-catching, dragon body, bear's arm, tiger's embracing head and thunder.
