The Root of Internal Power

Continue your Internal Power training with The Root of Internal Power (Formerly titled as “Internal Power”).

Sigung Richard Clear has expertly designed this series of drills and exercises so that you and a training partner can learn and develop high level Rooting skill from home.


Follow along as Sigung Clear teaches two complete beginners who have no previous rooting experience. Watch as the drills, exercises, and games on these 2 DVDs yield nearly instant results. Use the exact same series of drills and games to start Rooting immediately, and build even stronger and deeper Root over time.

Even if you have never Rooted before, the instructions in this 2 DVD set can rapidly build your Root. Learn how to Root strongly, build a deeper and deeper Root with every training session, sense your own Root depth, sense and manipulate your partner’s Root, and more.

    For whatever it’s worth I would love to learn from these training videos but as a senior on a fixed income – the price is way out of my range. How can I get this kind of training for a more affordable cost. I’m not begging – just trying to improve my Taiji knowledge. Thanks & Merry Christmas!

  2. I am beginning to realize that root development and management is the foundation of internal martial arts. Thus I want to learn it better and I love what I see on your videos and have employed it. Though I am in a class I cant count on having a partner to work with on all of the info on the dvd. For this situation how much more can I learn that’s not on your online videos. Or would you direct me to another root building dvd that would benefit me more.

      Hi Tommy,

      For building deep and powerful root, there is no better or faster way than the Root of Internal Power, but you do need a partner to work with. To build and maintain your root without a partner, I would recommend the Internal Iron Body course. Correct practice of that method will build your root over time. Use that as your daily bread and butter practice, and use The Root of Internal Power to make huge leaps and bounds whenever you can get with a partner.
