Check out Jesse Tsao. He's been around the Taijiquan block many times, and does a lot of in-depth detailed dvds. He was the first to my knowlege to do an in-depth dvd on the 13 postures and chan si gong.

Thanks. They look like they have some pretty interesting stuff there. I will definately look into it.

Sifu Tsao has hosted many seminars with, and trained under Zhu Tiancai. His material is pretty solid, and his explanations of small technicalities makes a big difference between his product, and the generic run of the mill Beijing 24 form crap.
If you ever get the opportunity, I highly recommend flying down to Cali for one of those seminars.

I have met Richard, and I saw him trying to do some "iron palm" board breaking. It was in a kung fu school in Miamisburg, which has since relocated. Richard could not break any of the boards, despite his repeated attempts. However, the man who ran the school, had no problem. Richard would even lay one board over two boards upright on their sides, still unable to break the flat one. I noticed the teacher of the school Richard was visiting would simply hold a board in one hand and break it with the other. It seemed effortless for him. He repeatedly broke them without even trying, which seemed to rankle Richard. The teacher looked at me and shrugged his shoulders. I don't think he wanted to embarrass Richard, but it was too late for that. Richard reminded me of a used-car salesman. He was nice, but I wondered about him.
