Here is one of my favorites, Tricia Yu, demonstrating the Yang style Cheng Man Ching form of Tai Chi (taiji). I like her because her videos are clear, steady, and she moves gracefully.
If you would like to help me spread the word of Tai Chi ( taiji ) please consider sharing this blog post with your friends.
Staying with the Yang Tai Chi ( taiji ) Chen Man-Ching Short Form 37 postures, I wanted to find a video that showed a different camera view, or perspective of the instructor. Once again, this instructor has the best video I could find in terms of quality video. However unlike the previous part 1 & 2 demonstration, this video has no narration.
My personal preference would be to find a video with 2 demonstrations; the first with the names of each posture annotated over the video, followed immediately with a video without any annotations. What do you think?
Know anyone learning or thinking about learning this style of Tai Chi? They and others may be interested in your sharing this video blog post with them so be sure to share.
Here is the part 2 to accompany yesterday’s part 1 to the Yang style tai chi form 37, made popular by Chen Man Ching Again, what I like about this video is the verbal guidance. Video quality is good, not great, but much better than other videos that I found. Knowing what it is like to shoot outdoors, I understand the challenges so I appreciate the voice dub over the video. When people try to record audio from the field, the quality is muffled and poor, making it difficult for the viewer to discern what is said.
Thank you for making this video to help those of us who are learning, or teaching.
By the way, you will find different spellings for Chen Man Ching; this is the “English” variation. Another is Ch-eng Man-ch-ing.
