    Chen Xiang/Good Form Videos

    While it's my general policy to post only sparring and competition clips here, I thought it would be worth posting these application and technique explanation videos from Chen Xiang because they're so much better than most of what's out there. Mr Chen trained shuaijiao for the first 30 years of his life, after which he took up bajiquan and Hunyuan ("practical method") taijiquan. He's around 62 years old in these videos.

    Some explanations of how push hands maps to applications with strikes:


    (regarding using Peng for kuzushi: "It cannot go unanswered, and if you give me the wrong answer I'll send you down [throw you].")

    Spanish seminar with intermittent Spanish subtitles:


    (demo starts ~1:10, includes some nice clinch fighting and takedowns, moves to jacket wrestling at 2:55 or so)

    A seminar from Madrid (voiceover in lispy Castillian Spanish):


    (demo starts at 0:53, lots of taiji style kuzushi)

    No, that rule only applies to the Sparring thread. Post any good videos you see.

    I wasn't thinking of it as an externally imposed rule. Rather, it has has been my goal to provide a counterexample for those who believe hard training, sparring and competing isn't CMA.

    Did a seminar with him last year. He didn't give away much, but the little time I had to feel him was illuminating and slick.

    I'm going to start posting good forms in this thread. Please feel free to change the thread title to something apropos for a good forms omnibus. Here are two to start...

    Wang Fukui showing beautiful shen fa at 82 years of age:



    And this gentleman performing his village pao quan, which is likely related to the regional styles from which Shaolin rou quan, taijiquan, &c, developed:

    I believe his form represents Yang Chengfu's taiji. However, Yang Chengfu was a colleague of Wu Jianquan and Sun Lutang at the Beijing Physical Culture Research Institute for something like 14 years, so I would expect that there was some cross pollination.
