    Ba Shi (movements) of Ma Sanyuan’s Xin Yi Quan
    Liu He (six conformities) in Xin Yi Liu He Quan (boxing using one's heart and mind) associated in one stresses on Kung-fu and emphasizes Jin (strength) and Li (force). Though the movements of the main Shi Da Xing (ten big forms) and Xin Yi Ba (postures using one's heart and mind) are quite simple, the concerned requirements are very strict. Every movement or posture should own both external form and internal spirit. To sum up, there are Nei San He (three internal conformities) and Wai San He (three external conformities). Nei San He-in one means that your heart has to conform, to your mind, the mind, to Qi and Qi, to your strength. Wai San He means that your hands have to conform to your feet, your elbows, to your knees, and your shoulders, to your crotch. The Nei and Wai joined together are called Liu He. "Liu He means that the Nei plus the Wai" being the basic requirement of Xin Yi Liu He Quan. If you could meet the above mentioned requirements, you would certainly have strengthened the unity, harmony and agility of your whole body, minding, breathing, strength and spirit. Whatever and however you move in a whit, your whole body will be moving accordingly. Whenever or wherever you are being still, your whole body will be in a complete quiescence, you would be as alert and agile as an active monkey being so swift, agile and moving as sudden as lightning, your opponent would have no chance to fight back, since your whole body is confirmed into an entire part exerting its potential to a maximum extent and applying its strength to a great limitation. It is a kind of Jue Duan Jin (an absolute and broken strength) being a very powerful force, you will due become very accomplished in playing Kung-fu since you have been practicing it for ages called Jiu Jiu (nine times nine describing a long, long time) Wei Gong (being real Kung-fu). What level you might have been on in your achievement would not be reached by other ordinary players in Kung-fu field.
Once you are still, all your outside forms are drawn back to your "Xin Yi', your spirit and power would accumulate inside your body waiting for a moment to be sent out. Your ease and relaxation might be somewhat showed to others while your spirit and energy have been stored inside without any certain form or movement showed them outside but highly concentrated into a focus inside or outside whatever. It is concluded that "whenever you are in stillness, it will be quiet in all parts of your body and spirit."
     Motion and stillness, strength and softness are two kinds of opposite phenomenon. Liu He in one makes its elements combined organically requiting that the motion and stillness, as well as strength and softness as a few expression of Yang and Yin should be assisted in any practicing the Quan or even in real fighting. Whether or no practicing or viewing Xin Yi Quan, you should pay attention to both the internal and external, if Yin is contained between Yang, Yang, between Yin. Quan Jing (some formulas explaining boxing) says "you will find Yin between Yang and Yang between Yin. Whereas Yin and Yang are in the universe expressing all the sky and ground, thunder and lightning, or would be achieved perfectly in your Kung-fu movements being a complete part with their full spirit associated Yin Yang in one."
     In case your movements conform to the requirements issued by Quan Jing, the more you practice the Quan, the higher level you will reach in total achievement and the deeper and more interesting being valuable to be appreciated. Otherwise, it won't be a kind of art.
       1. Dan Ba (single movement)
         1 Keep a preparation of standing up and erase your complicated thoughts and relax your shoulders and droop your arms and hands down. Your waist must be in no force but drooped down with your head straightened upward supported by your Qi (interior breathing and strength). Have your eyes looking forward flatly. Your tongue should be touched your soft palate slightly. Raise your anus up slightly and keep your Qi sinking down in your Dan Tian (an acupoint located fight inside your navel).
      2. Bend your knees down a little bit. Raise your left foot closely abutting on the shinbone of your right foot. Shrink your body tweaking and turning leftward with your body moving like having a pan on your back. Lift your left hand up to your left ribs and raise your right hand up to your mouth. Your neck should be shrunk and your head, move facing upward slightly. Your eyes should be looked flatly at your front.
      3. Force your feet trampling both strongly on the ground and pull back your right hand in forcing as a motive power for your hitting with your left hand somewhat like sending out an arrow rushed out by a very strong bow. The sound you shout is following your hands moving and the hands moving will be falling down after your sound ceased. The Ding-shi (fixed movement) is Zuo Gong Bu (left bow stepping) Dan Ba (single movement). Zuo (left) The Ding Si and the fight should be exchanged to each other and practiced in alternation.
     The chart says:
     Dan Ba starts on to be led by your minding continuously. You make your body shrunk turning around and hold your Dan Tian closely. The bow pulled in extremity is like a full moon or a tiger holding his head. The string of the bow sounds clearly hitting a bird falling down but breaks itself.
     2. Shuang Ba (double movements)
1. The preparation style is the same as the above.
2. You shrink and bend down, move the center of your gravity to your right leg and keep your right knee facing the inside of your left bandy-legged knee. Let your hands drooping down closed by your knees, crotch and stomach, then push your hands pouncing onto your front. At the same time, force both feet stepping on the ground with your hands pressing down beside your left foot. Your head should be peaked up with your Qi rising upward slightly. Your eyes should be looked downward at your front. The Ding-shi is Zuo Gong Bu Pu Cai Shi.
      3. Move your left foot backward to the front of your right foot. Keep the tiptoe of your left foot a little bit up. Have your hands backward like grasping something through your stomach to the front of your breast. Move your body like having a pan on your back. Your neck should be shrunk and your head, move facing upward slightly. Your eyes should be looked forwards.
4. Force your feet stepping on the ground. Have your Zhong Jie (the middle part of your body) hitting with a Shu Chang Jin (a colligating and long force), move your hands pushing out through your breast at the same height of your breast. Keep your eyes looked at your front. The sound is following your hands moving and the hands moving will be falling down after the sound ceased. The Ding-shi (fixed movement) is Zuo Gong Bu (left bow stepping) Shuang Ba (double movements).
     The chart says that you should shrink your body and hold your Dan Tian in doing Kung-fu, touch and dredge all the main and collateral Jing Luo (channels for your Qi moving) inside your body without loosing your conscious minding. The backbone should be stretched like lodging a pan on your back shaping like an eagle or a bear, the force sent out by you from your Dan Tian sounding like thunder roaring.
