Here at the frontier, the leaves fall like rain. Although my neighbors are all barbarians, and you, you are a thousand miles away, there are still two cups at my table.

Ten thousand flowers in spring, the moon in autumn, a cool breeze in summer, snow in winter. If your mind isn't clouded by unnecessary things, this is the best season of your life.

Cheng Man Ching Taijiquan Video Jackpot

Cheng Man Ching was one of the first highly skilled Taijiquan masters to come to the United States and teach widely. Below are four videos I've found that are particularly interesting.

This first one is believe to be the last video taken of him in 1975




Here is another of him performing the whole form from the 1950's.

This next one shows his student, Master Huang Sheng Shyan, who had thousands of students himself, doing the form side by side.

Finally, Three generations of Taijiquan. Cheng Man Ching, Huang Sheng Shyan and Huang's student, Wee Kee Jin
