About the Author
Master Gong Zhong Xiang was born in 1924 in Jiang Su Provence, Jian Yi City, Hua Shi Town. Master Gong studied martial arts from a young age and had high expectations for his teachers. He had to have the most famous teacher in the whole country, with the most authentic art. He learned Xing Yi, Taiji, and Xing Yi Ba Gua, Taiji Push Hands, Da Lu, San Shou, Long and Short Weapons, etc from Master Chu Gui Ting who was the student of the famous Xing Yi Master Li Cun Yi and also Master Yang Chen Fu's best student. Master Gong learned from Master Chu for the next 20-30 years. Master Chu knew he was a honest, straight-forward person, who respects his teacher and has great morals, and is loyal like a son. Because of this, Master Chu taught him differently than others, with more care and high expectations, so Master Gong could have all his skills accurately.

I am a 20 year practitioner and teacher of Xingyi Quan, Bagua Zhang and Tai Chi Quan
While not being a book to enlighten or deepen the physical or theoretical practice of the long term Xingyi Quan practitioner, it is representative of a Xingyi masters life, practice and accomplishments. This book is what I refer to as a "survey", meaning it surveys the length and breadth of a specific practitioner's art without delving to deeply into any aspect of it. These types of books are valuable to beginners and people who want general or high level information about the art and the occasional gem can be gleaned from them by the long time practitioner.
This book is a "survey" and is not meant to document every aspect of the art. Many people complain of the lack of clarity in the pictures or lack of applications. It is my opinion that the pictures in books are to be used as a reference by students receiving hands on training from a teacher. You cannot learn this art from a book; you cannot learn these arts from You Tube. You have to spent time with a real practitioner of the art. You can learn forms, you can even learn applications, but you will never achieve real understanding.
The late Master Gong Zhong Xiang was a life long student of the famous Master Chu Guiting.
Master Chu Guiting was a highly respected student of the most famous Xing Yi Quan teacher; Li Cunyi.
This book is a wonderful representation of Authentic pure and virtually unaltered traditional Xing Yi Quan.
It is a treasure for all Xing Yi students, as it shows the forms as they were handed down directly from LCY to CGT to GZX.
There is no messing about with them here. It is pure Hebei Xing Yi demonstrated by one of the greatest masters of this art.
Master Zhong passed away a few years ago now, and with him went ao much knowledge.
We are very fortunate that this book was published before his sad demise.
