Xin Tiger Fist is created by Shifu Yan Xin as an introductory course to Shaolin Animal forms. The name 'Xin' represents Shifu's name '新‘.
Shifu has created this Tiger form as the first step one would take into exploring the Shaolin Animal Forms.
With Shifu's 30 years of Shaolin Kung Fu training and teaching background he has constructed the KEY elements of the Tiger Form and then deconstructed these elements in this course so that you can gain an in-depth understanding of the Tiger Form, from entering into the emotions of a Tiger to extracting the Tiger's unique wild abilities into your kung fu practice.
We hope through training this course you will be able to explore and find your inner power, dig out that inner power and release that new found power whether that is in Kung Fu training or in your everyday lives.
How is course presented:
Shifu Yan Xin has designed this course for you to learn the form in 5 weeks, so each week you will be presented with a set of learning and training sessions to follow, and the goal of that week is to fully focus on training that set well, This way you can get the best out of training and really soak in the details of each set before moving on to the next set of movements.
Who is the course suitable for:
