Zhai, Guo Yun Shen, Yao Zongxun and now Li Jian Yu. This video includes
health posts, combat posts, stepping and moving, fa li (power

Li Jiang Yu's DVD "Tao of Yi Chuan" is probably the cream of the crop
in Martial Art DVDs. It is such a treat to learn from one of the rare
surviving 2nd generation Yi Chuan master.
Chuan is a rare martial art noted for its simplicity, tremendous health
benefits and stunningly powerful fighting techniques. However, with the
passing away of founder Wang Xiang Zhay and most of his students, this
art is quickly become an endangered species. Master Li Jiang Yu's DVD
will help to preserve this art... Master Li Jiang Yu's DVD contains
everything in Yi Chuan, including Standing Meditation, Testing of
force, Footwork, Push hands, Power release or Issuing force, Animal
Play and many self defense techniques. Master Li is very generous in
sharing Yi Chuan's secrets. Nothing is left out! The DVD is also
enjoyable to watch. It has beautiful music background, set in the scene
of an oriental garden in Beijing, with Master Li standing in the rain.
Master Li gives instruction in English and Mandarin Chinese, with
further clarification in English by a narrator. Master Li's
demonstation of using relaxation and no muscular force to neutralize
and uproot an opponent much heavier is very impressive."
do not have access to a teacher of Yi Chuan/i Chuan/ Da Cheng Quan.
This movie is a good reference for people like me. Master Li is very
impressive for someone 40 years old, even though he is almost 80 in
this video. He speaks in chinese and english, but it is hard to
understand a lot of what he says because he has a mic taped to him. He
covers all of the basics in the video. The health stances, the combat
stances, the stepping and moving, the fa li and he shows pushing hands
and applications with a partner. The video was remade from a VHS video
so the quality is not DVD, but it is still very good. I wish there were
some more videos of Master Li, especially more instructional
explanations. But this video is still very good.
you are like me, and do not have access to a good teacher, then I
highly recommend this video for your reference. I would also recommend
Sifu Fong Ha's Yiquan DVD for you as well."
