My association with Yip Hei-sing was that we were fellow committee members and instructors at the Hong Kong Chinwoo Athletic Association for more then 10 years. My impression is that he followed the ways of his teacher Han Xingyuan very closely, and I know quite a number of Han Xiangyuan's students as well. We had opportunities to exchange our views on issuing force, neutralize force, Xingyiquan, push hands, and testing force. I do not notice any difference between Han Xingyuan and Yao Zongxun but the ways the Yao twin brothers are applying Yiquan to other sport are a different matter.
Lineages and associations are useless if one can not achieve what has said to do
