No wonder since he never met or studied with Kenny Gong. The statement that it does not come from the feet, but comes form the center is also erroneous. Know I'll probably be banned from this site for these comments, but these statements by "Sifu" Lloyd totally misrepresent what Kenny Gong ShingYi is all about.


And yet, Lloyd has video of Kenny Gong using those exact words as well as video of himself in class... ::) For some reason you seem intent on slandering Lloyd from afar and won't touch hands with the man even when he shows up at your door.

Anyway, Lloyd is the most skilled internal stylist I've encountered so far and his son is quite skilled as well. Anyone need only touch hands with him or his son to understand why I study with the man. We are currently working on a distance learning program as well as doing the local practice group. Currently I'm working on a site for the local school as well as the distance learning.

Well, I'm done training with Lloyd - I'm going to explore taiji and aiki again. I don't have the patience required for learning this system.

I had the privilege to practice with the Han Family Yiquan group in Sacramento and I feel as if Lloyd's teachings are too form-based for my liking. I'm much more interested in training Yiquan now and feel that it is a better use of my time. Too bad there aren't any Yiquan groups here in Phoenix. Lloyd is still generously teaching his understanding of the xingyibagua - I just don't care to work that hard for qualities that I can train plainly and systematically.

Did you see the two videos in the 5 Ancestors Fist thread? Nice stuff. And they were having fun sharing it.
