Xie Pieqi (1920–2003) was the 4th generation lineage holder of Yin Style Baguazhang (YSB).[1] He was succeeded in the art by his student, He Jinbao.


Xie learned Baguazhang from Men Baozhen, who was a student of Yin Fu. Xie started learning martial arts from Men at the age of 13 and would spend nearly 30 years with him.[2] The student Xie had been training the entire Baguazhang system to, Liu Fang, died unexpectedly in 1985. He Jinbao became the new successor and Xie taught him the full YSB system.

Ensuring the Continuance of Yin Style BaguazhangEdit

Towards the end of his life, Xie worked with He Jinbao to document the entire Yin Style Baguazhang system on a series of instructional DVDs, in an effort to ensure the survival of the complete Yin Style system.[3] In addition, He Jinbao wrote a series of articles to help continue Yin Style Baguazhang.[4]
