Xing Yi fighting stance

Xing Yi, or Xingyiquan, is a Chinese martial art and one of the three main internal schools (néijia) along with Tai Chi and Ba Gua.

Mortal Kombat

Xing Yi is used by Kano as his primary fighting style in Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance and Armageddon.

It is also used as a tertiary fighting style by Blaze in Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance and Unchained, because of him only having fighting styles from other kombatants.

It is used by Kira as her primary fighting style in Mortal Kombat: Deception and Unchained, as she mainly had techniques borrowed from Kano and Sonya. She learned it when she was young.

"Meaning 'mind form,' Xing Yi is a simple and practical style of kung-fu that originated in the San-Shih province of China. This is a northern Chinese system, which relies on short basic forms for training. This art has long been associated with Ba Gua beginning in the early 1900's, and the two are often taught together."
