TaiChiTJ said:It would be a very tough choice. I have purchased written instruction in Yiquan. It seems to me instruction in Yiquan "gets to the point", a little faster than traditional Hsing-i, however Hsing-i is a great art.
Here is the site where I ordered the written instructions:
I have a friend who suggested to me that since the founder of Yiquan was a master of Hsing-i before developing Yiquan, Yiquan could be considered a kind of extension or side branch of Hsing-i.
What do you think?
I had a very interesting email conversation with a teacher at the Yiquan site about the use of visualization while holding the standing posture. I was really taught how an internal mental process can be used to create a stronger stance.
I would recommend the site, they are great people, in love with Yiquan.
Gaoguy said:Everything in yiquan is already in xingyiquan. Yiquan, for the most part, dispenses with the forms. However that's where a lot of the chinna and shuai aspects are.
There's only 1 Yiquan school in NY and probably the only one in the East Coast not sure. And the teacher is chinese too so maybe he's real? dachengdao.com or something dachengkungfuXue Sheng said:It has been down for awhile.
I am wondering if the school still exists there.
I am beginning to believe, on the east coast, that a real yiquan teacher is harder to find than a real a Xingyi teacher.
And I am not certain, but I think the same may go for the west coast too.
