Going to be moving to Hong Kong in next couple of weeks. Any recommendations for Yang style Tai Chi and Yiquan?
I've spent a few years studying Yang style in london with John Ding and have been trying to find a contact for Mary Yang, does anyone have a contact for her or know if she is still teaching and has any regular classes.
Thanks in advance for any info

Can't help on the Yang style taiji front, but I know there are a couple of people teaching Yiquan in HK, specifically:

1. C S Tang, Very well known teacher in HK, teaches mainly Gao style bagua but also dragon fist, Yiquan and Taichi. AFAIK his Yiquan mostly comes from Han Xingyuan line, but think he has also visited other teachers.

2. Ng Chi-hang, He is a disciple of Yip Hei-sing, who was one of the senior students of Han Xingyuan in HK. He has been featured on a couple of HK documentaries about Yiquan. Contact details on his website.

I am also interested in Yiquan and will be in HK next month - if you are planning to visit either of the teachers above maybe we could go together?

Best way to get to Mary Yang is through Jim Uglow - he's a good guy, PM me and I'll give you his number.

If you're interested in Yang style in HK, I'd recommend searching out Hui Kuk Chan or Shui Hung Lam. Both long time students of Ip Tai Tak, Hui Kuk Chan studied the longest with Ip out of all of his students and is the best example of what he taught.

I'm currently living in Mid Levels, let me know if you'd like a training partner for pushing and stance training.

In Tsim Sha Tsui, there is an old school famous teacher named Chan Jing Zhong. He's famous for Yiquan and Chen Tai chi.

PM me if you want to look him up. My friend goes to his class and can take you there

Hi Nick

I met and did some training with Master Yip Hei Sing many years ago, he was quite skilled , is he still alive?

I actually watched Master Han's group when I was very young in HK but had no idea who he was or what they were doing, if I had I would have tried to talk to him instead of just watching from a distance and mimiking the standing postures to try and feel what on earth it was about!

@Alex, you met Yip Hei Sing?! Wow, would be interested on any comments you have on his skill (PM is fine also).

Unfortunately Yip passed away in 2005, the main teachers in HK for Yiquan are some of his disciples - however the level / refinement of the skill varies, some of the teachers are very 'angular', don't display the smooth, snakelike power of good Yiquan. Have heard good things about his senior disciple Sum Siu Po (沈少保).

Just my .02, YMMV, etc.

hi Jon (not Nik, I just realised....)

Yes he was quite skillful with pushing/sticking, had the fine vibration feeling which i felt in a few mainland Yi Quan men, talked and demoed the six directions force with tiny redirections of my arms and center each time i went for his center.

I recall he was quite alert and sprightly for an old man, nice humour and didnt have the overt aggression i found with many Yi Quan mainland guys.

I actually put a photo of him and some memories in one of my old books, will have to try and find it.
