YiQuan is practiced with very qlear methods. Find a qualified teacher and then there’s no need for mystifying it, unless if one want to go on as an commercial teacher.....

Most of my teachers talk about focus on oneself not outside.

Chen Yuen San - uses analogy of eating, and to always keep attention on inner feeling and requirements.

Serge Augier in his Daoist Boxing book quoting Gary Lam ...just don't care what they do!

Paul Rogers high level Zhao Dao Xin Yiquan exponent gives detailed teaching on inner requirements, and warns against losing oneself by following the enemy's attack or intent.

He Jing Han says just keep your attention on your structure and let the enemy walk onto it...not to project mind out as you will lose yourself.

GM Sam Chin constantly reminds students to keep attention on the requirements of structure and contact points, not to lose one's mind by intending outwards.

(listen to Zen Mind Martial Power for detailed explanation of my studies with above)


Alex, out of those you have mentioned above, who would you say is the best? I'm looking to learn from a good teacher that can actually use what they train against someone trying to fight back. I've come across too many teachers (as I'm sure you have) who can't use what they teach! I'm based in Bristol. Thanks, Simon.

Hi Simon

You are not far away from Paul Rogers, who has brilliant skill.

He is very traditional, does not like to teach people who already teach, or those who go there with ego problems.

As to who is best, the best is the one you can practically see often, and you trust and like each other.

Alex, thanks for your reply. Do you have any more information on Paul? How to get in touch with him etc? Looks very powerful in the videos!

I don't mind traveling to find the best fighting skills! Visit London, Gloucester, Leeds, Southampton to see my teachers/coaches. Is Paul still the best bet?

Thanks again.

James Carss asked me to link this video of him doing a match in Hong Kong some years ago, against a respected local teacher of Okinawan karate.

Simon to answer your question, if you are willing to stop training from all those other teachers, start with an empty cup with Paul, you will find a very high level of teaching.

It all depends on the affinity between student and teacher, no matter how great the teacher is.

Thank you Alex. I train with Steve Morris and he says similar things! You've met many people so I'll go with your suggestion on Paul as I assume he's the best. The videos you've done with him definitely show something different to most. Thanks again, I'll be in contact. Simon.

Now I can not see the video but I guess it’s a competition freefighting bout ?

So,It’s not the outcome of the practice that defines it as YiQuan, but it’s the specific application of Yi in the practice that is YiQuan.
And this very much also applies to for example XYQ and TJQ too
