http://www.njqinternalarts.com The world within, creates the world without. NJQ stands for Nei Jia Quan, translated means 'internal fist'. Nei Jia Quan is comprised of the Taoist internal martial arts Bagua Zhang, Tai Chi Chuan, and Xing Yi Quan. Xing Yi Quan is divided into two main systems: the Twelve Animals and the Five Elements. The direction of movement in Xing Yi Quan forms is predominately linear. In practice one walks through the forms coordinating the motions of their entire bodies into one focused unit. The hands, feet and torso all arrive together and the nose, lead hand and lead foot are aligned along the same vertical axis. Great emphasis is placed on the ability to generate power with the whole body and focus it into one pulse which is released in a sudden burst.
