    yeah, and in most cases there are pictures on the altar and/or the wall. we have pictures of everyone back to wong fei hung (there are no photos of him, so we have a statue) and no one should care about lineage before him, anyway, since he changed the art so much.

    to the OP, go and see what he has to offer. If you like what you get, then keep coming back. I, for one, don't really care about lineage even in CMA circles.

    It has nothing to do with lineage.

    To the OP: what's the teacher's name and background?

    Clarification: Cartmell's taiji background includes a Zhaobao offshoot called Huleijia (distinctions discussed here), an old-style Yang flavor, Sun style (with the founder's family) and Chen Pan Ling's style.

    Thanks Jack.

    Actually on that note, I just got my hands on Chan Pan Ling's book. Amazon.com: Chen Pan-ling's Original Tai Chi Chuan Textbook (Tai Chi Chuan Chiao Tsai)…

    Still mulching it over.

    Anyway, I'll hold off until we get an instructor's name.
    Interesting coincidence; a Yang Tai Chi guy recently started teaching in my town, and his Yellow Pages ad says he's a sixth dan from China.

    So, what's this WuShu duan thing? Same sort of thing with a different name or something else?

    Sorry, I had to Google Erle Montaigue to see who he was. As far as I can tell there's no connection between the two.

    I haven't actually met the guy in my town, and I probably never will; I just thought it was odd that he's claiming a sixth dan. There's a website listed with the advertisement but it doesn't work.
