I have been practicing martial arts for most of my adult life. Started in the Army as a Captain. I first became aware of Sigung Clear through a martial arts magazine article on Tai Chi. Before I bought many of his DVD's, I went to the source in Tennessee and attended one of his workshops. His format is pretty simple: If you have studied one of the arts and are competent in its basic and advanced techniques, Clear will teach you how to fight with it. Most teachers in America who have great competence are hampered by class membership and the need for income. Clear has solved this. He is an "application" teacher. His workshops are a combination of live, hands-on teaching and the filming of the workshop for DVD sales. Clear is the first teacher I have ever dealt with in actual martial arts who goes right to the applications in fighting. He doesn't teach forms primarily. He says right from the beginning that the student is expected to COME TO THE WORKSHOP with a competence in his own art. Clear says: "Bring your art to me, and I'll teach you to fight with it." I appreciated his candor, and once I understood his modus operandi in teaching, it was a revelation. I have the sixteen week course, and have learned a lot from it. I know many of the techniques, but only Clear, of the several teachers I've had in forty years, synthesizes form, technique and application the way he does. That comes from not wasting time with "beginning" techniques and form. Clear has a definite niche in martial arts in America and elsewhere, because he DOES what he teaches, and is patient, long-suffering and persistent in teaching those who "come to the well." There's nothing "fancy" or "artistic" about what he teaches.Read more ›

I have been practicing taiji for 13 years. I still check out videos from teachers that I admire. Clear is one of those teachers. His teaching meets my own criteria which are:
1. True to the heart of the art (classics, internal principles, etc.)
2. Accessible--Not watered down, simply well explained/demonstrated.
3. Functional/Practical

The reason I continue to watch Clear's videos is that his expression of the ideas and mechanics are really wonderful. Sometimes I pick up information I haven't encountered before. But I always come away feeling like I understand things a little more deeply or catch on to some facets that I hadn't really noticed before. This is true in his Combat T'ai Chi as well. There are some different facets I've noticed from his explanation of the taiji in combat.

I would first like to say I don't give negative reviews on Amazon.com, but I had to for this one after an hour of watching it.

Bad video quality.
Mediocre techniques.
Real life situation? I would be Neo from The Matrix if every offense/punch/attack from the student is at that speed. I understand slowness is for demonstration, but most people with slightest level of martial arts experience can think of a counterattack if given 2-3 seconds of thinking.
Misunderstanding between student and teacher while demonstrating (75% of the time) that confuses the viewer.
The teacher insist in the video many times that you watch previous films on different martial arts to understand forms of Tai Chi, which he says he doesn't have the time to show it in this video. (WTF?)

You will be better off watching Youtube videos than wasting your $35 dollars.

Clear is the best way to explain the Combat Tai Chi DVD. Everything is simple, effective and efficient so you can use it within weeks not years. Clears Combat Tai Chi is like the Tina Turner song simply the best better than all the rest.

I am reviewing the Internal Combat Arts 16 week video series. I found this product extremely well done and VERY informational. The detail on how you need to feel internally as well as the external aspects of the art are worth every penny spent. This is NOT a monkey see, monkey do program but Sigung Clear gets into history as well as combat techniques detailing why a certain move is practiced, not just the move. I also now understand how other Tai Chi moves I have learned can be utilized as self defense tactics. The progression is logical and takes a "walk before you run" position without the "you must master these skills for ten years before we teach you how to use them" approach.

Great video with quality instruction. In this video Richard Clear gives you no nonsense combative applications you can use for tai chi. It gives people and understanding about what tai chi is used for and what you can do with it in a combative situation. If you want someone to save you time and money then Clear is the way to go. I notice a lot of instructors out there who might give you a tai chi form but that's about it. Clear doesn't do this. The things he offers are things you can actually use in a real situation and nothing else.

Well to be brief regarding Sifu Clear Tai Chi Chuan material, he try to teach in a very bare bone basic so anyone can understand. He show both aspect of Tai chi combat (street) and health wish to me is rare. If anyone who practice Tai Chi Chuan who interested on seeing how dirty Tai CHi can be on the street South east asian style- this is it.
