Yi Quan Chi Kung: Yi Quan is an integral part of Xingyiquan training which includes standing, sitting, and reclining meditation practice, In modern times, Yi Quan has often been taught in isolation because the concepts can be applied in push hands and self-defense. This is different than the fighting art of Dachengquan created by Wang Xiangzhai. Because of the depth of the practice and some student's desire to deepen meditation, it can be offered as a separate discipline for those that are interested. Sharp studied Yi Quan with Huan De Hai, a Xingyiquan student of Wang Xiangzhai (prior to his development of Dachengquan) and Jiang Rong Qiao, as well as Cheng Jie Feng (Huan's student). 5. Swimming Dragon Chi Kung: All Five Phases are practiced including: Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, and Water. Previously in the West, the majority of book and video instruction has focused on the Metal Phase only. Long term instruction also includes the Five Phases of Standing, Sound Meditation, and Sitting that additionally focuses on Dantian rotation. This comprehensive, yet concise approach to Chi Kung was taught to Gerald A. Sharp by Ju Beng Yi, Guo Ling's inner door student. 6. Guo Ling Chi Kung: Presented and taught are the complete walking methods and their host of variations, comprehensive Meditation (Five Phases & Health Enhancement), Ruler, and Sounds Meditations.

Sharp studied Soaring Crane with Wang Shunxi of Shanghai, a student of Zhao Jing Xiang, the creator of Soaring Crane Chi Kung. Sessions are specific, thorough, and are taught by amicable arrangement.
