In this video Paul is teaching his student Daniel about how Xing Yi can be applied practically and how the classical or standard applications may not be so obvious but are still there within the movements we use for sparring/fighting.

They discuss using initial strikes to “test” the opponent and get a reaction then how to follow up from that. The discussion continues to talk about tactical issues such as using “dragon body” to slip around incoming strikes for simultaneous attack and defence, using positional advantage (“seeing the heng”), distracting the opponent’s by sending intention high or low and striking at the opposite level, and defending through position but maintaining threat/pressure to stop yourself being overwhelmed.
