Yiliquan Goes International

December 18, 2009

Mr. Mark Stapleton, a well-known Seven-Star Praying Mantis and Wing Chun instructor in Ireland was recently certified as European Director for the Yiliquan Martial Arts Association, which is chaired by Blue Snake’s own Phillip Starr (founder of Yiliquan Kung-Fu and author of Martial Maneuvers and Martial Mechanics). Mark has been training in Yiliquan for some time and has made more than one trip to the U.S. where he stays in Mr. Starr’s home and trains daily with both Mr. Starr and Jeremy Thompson, the Chief Instructor for the Association. Currently, Mr. Stapleton is organizing the First European Yiliquan Training Camp, which will be held in Kilkenny, Ireland in February.

Congrats, Mark! Phillip Starr has trained you well!
