Yiquan Intensive DVDs
Sigung Clear first began learning Yiquan from his original Xing Yi teacher Tyrone Jackson. Our Xing Yi lineage is:
Kuo Yun Shen > Wang Xiangzhai > Lee Ying Arng > Dr. Fred Wu > Tyrone Jackson > Richard Clear.
Wang Xiangzhai is also the creator of Yiquan. Master Wang felt that Xing Yi was often taught with too much emphasis on 'outer form', neglecting the essence of true martial power. So in the mid 1920’s He started to teach what he felt was the essence of the art and simply called it Yiquan; an approach that is similar in many ways to the Kuntao emphasis on practicality and function over form.
Because of Master Wang’s influence, the Xing Yi that Richard Clear learned from Tyrone was mixed with Yiquan and heavily influenced by this philosophy of focusing on the essence of the art.
Of course, Sigung Clear has continued his studies since that time. Learning Xing Yi & Yiquan from a number of skilled teachers in the US and in China. Including from his Kuntao & Silat teacher Willem deThouars.
