Shì gù yījǔ yīdòng, wùxū huópō línglì.
Yī kāi yī hé, xūzhī dòngjìng xūshí.
Qí dòng yě, ruò lóngfēifèngwǔ. Qí jìng yě, sì hǔbù xióng xíng.
Jiàn jiàn yǒu shén, wú dòng ruò fēng yáo zhī bì.
Bù bù shí tà, miǎn piāohū lǎnsǎn zhī yú.
Each and every movement must be lively and agile.
When opening and closing, one must comprehend, movement and stillness, empty and full.
The movements are like a dragon flying, a phoenix dancing.
One is calm, like a tiger or bear walking.
The sword’s every movement has spirit, don’t have the problem of moving like shaking in the wind.
Every step true and solid, avoiding the error of swaying and sloppy steps.

Xingyi Quan/ Hsing Yi Chuan - Abi Moriya - San Shou Pao
