Yin Style Bagua Hybrid Martial Arts (Yin Style Baguazhang)
Within Bagua styles, the Yin Style is known as
the “Hard Palm” style, as it is hard and powerful, using piercing direct
movements. The Yin Style of Bagua makes use of the “Ox Tongue Palm”, in which
the fingers are closed together and the thumb is tucked in. The steps are very
natural, and there are four characteristic training methods: standing postures,
turning (which means walking the circle), striking and changing. The system
emphasises Bagua stepping, single technique training as well as combination
training, from which forms and weapons can then be practiced.
The founder of Yin Style Bagua is Yin Fu, who
was born in 1840 in Hebei province, and passed away at the age of 69. He moved
to the capital due to poverty at a young age, where he lived at Chaoyang Gate
and took many jobs such as selling scissors and selling doughsticks. When he
was a child he had learnt Shaolin Fist, Luohan Fist and Tan Tui. At around the
age of 20 he became a student of Bagua founder Dong Hai Chuan. After finishing
his training he became well known and earned himself the nickname “Skinny Yin”
due to his kind nature.
After completing his training, he began working
as a security guard in Beijing’s Dong Chang Hutong’s Hutabu residence, Jian
Gang Hutong’s Ying family, Chao Wai Middle Road’s Cang Hua House Wang Jiu
Family as well as being employed by Chong Wai company. Later on, Funiyinbu (a
Manchurian who’s Chinese name was Ye Qian), a renowned calligrapher, gave him
an introduction to the Royal Palace where he gained the attention of the major
eunuchs in the inner palace of the Emperor Guangxu himself.
In the winter of
1882, Dong Hai Chuan passed away, Yin Fu gathered together all the other
students to have a memorial tablet erected on his grave. This tablet was the
first written record of Bagua, and of Dong Hai Chuan’s life. Later on, Yin Fu
spent his time at Chao Yang Gate teaching his art to many students and
developing his art.
Yin Fu took on many students during his
lifetime, some of the prominent ones included Ma Gui, Li Yong Qing, Ju Qing
Yuan, Cui Zhen Dong, He Jin Kui, Yang Jun Feng, Liu Dong Cheng, Cao Zhong Sheng,
Men Bao Zhen, Zeng Ceng Qi, Gong Bao Tian and Liu Qing Fu. It was through
students such as these that the art spread widely.
