I'll be gone for a while

Hello to all who read this blog.

I am currently working on an e-book which is to be the first of many that I will market here.

This means that I will not be posting here for a while.

The posts on this blog were never meant to explain my techniques in detail. I have decided to make the full details available- at a price.

Stay well.

Wenhsiu Taijiquan

video

Taijiquan is one of the big contributors to Wenhsiuquan's technique. The power forms in Wenhsiuquan are based on the forms of Taijiquan and Shaolin Boxing.

My first introduction to Taijiquan's internal strength came from two Taiwanese girls, Wei Jie Ju and Chen Yu Chi. It had left a lasting impression on me. I feel that every martial art should train its students to develop internal strength and to channel qi. I don't think it is necessary to explain why.

Some katas for the beginner.

The first kata introducing strikes and grabs.

This is the first kata to show throws and takedowns.

Second kata for strikes and grabs.

Second kata for throws.

I find that pre-arranged katas are actually more useful as a teaching tool than actual training. When you have the basics down you are better off developing your own kata to prepare you for as many situations as possible.
