Zhu Yu Ming Bagua

Added 05-Feb-2007

We met Zhu Yu Ming in December 2003, where she is a professor of Wushu at the Beijing Sports University. In all of her patterns, although paced correctly, each move was crisp and clear. On examining the photographs after the filming session, we were totally amazed that each photo looked as if it had been posed - eyes totally focussed, hands perfectly formed, stance balanced and correct...that is called perfection of ones art. Filmed in Beijing, December 2003.

Xu Jian Guo - Shanghai Bagua

Added 05-Feb-2007

Master Xu Jian Guo performs Bagua Zhang as taught to him by his father, the famous Xu Wen Zhong. This pattern is fast, but alternates to moments of calm and poise. A pattern is a training tool, but it is also a performance. Circle walking can be slow, but here Master Xu walks fast. When he crouches, the power and control is latent. Filmed in Shanghai, April 2006.

Nan Quan

Added 05-Feb-2007

One of many patterns in the style Nan Quan or 'Southern Fist'. This features typically tight footwork and an emphasis on hand strikes. However, there are a few low kicks dotted around the pattern, and some less than obvious sweeps. See if you can spot them! Fimled in Zheng Zhou, May 2001.

Qing Cheng Tai Chi

Added 05-Feb-2007

The Daoist styles found in Qing Cheng are typically soft and 'internal' similar to those found in Wudang, although unfortunately less well known in the West. This pattern shows one of the internal forms from the system. Filmed in Qing Cheng, May 2005.

Twin Yong Chun Thumb Hook Swords

Added 01-Jan-2007

Both of Master Su Ying Han's children have studied with him for over twenty years. His daughter, the elder of the two siblings, has learnt quietly and diligently in a world dominated by male martial artists. However, as this pattern shows, she is easily the equal of any of her fellow students. This pattern, using twin thumb hook swords, requires extreme concentration and focus - in many movements, the blades must be guided with total committment within inches of the body or face. Filmed in Yong Chun, Fujian, December 2004.

Su Jun Yi Yong Chun White Crane Pattern

Added 01-Jan-2007

With visible energy and passion, the young Su Jun Yi demonstrates a long white crane pattern as taught to him by his father, Su Ying Han. Su Jun Yi has been learning white crane for over 20 years himself, and this pattern indicates he has been no slouch. Each strike is fast, springy and distinct, each movement clear and precise and throughout the pattern, his stance is there to support the upper body movements. This is possibly one of the best patterns we have released on Wushu Scholar to date. Filmed in Yong Chun, Fujian, December 2004.

Master Su Performs Yong Chun White Crane

Added 01-Jan-2007

At the beginning of the video, Master Su demonstrates the key elements of the Yong Chun white crane stance and footwork. Filmed in Yong Chun, Fujian, December 2004.

Cangzhou 13 section Chain Whip

Added 03-Dec-2006

A different and more acrobatic variation on the Chain Whip pattern than that performed by Master Wang. Sun Zhi Wei is a younger man and so is able to throw more of his body into each movement. It is not difficult to see why the Chain Whip is such a popular weapon, particularly with young practitioners.

Water Margin 3-Sectional Staff

Added 03-Dec-2006

Mastering a soft weapon like the three sectional staff indicates a stylist's dedication and depth. The recent Jet Li film Fearless portrayed Huo Yuan Jia using a three-sectional staff against a katana, showing brilliantly how effective the weapon can be in practised hands. Similarly, when his opponent attempts to use the weapon against Master Huo, we see how unwieldy it is in untrained hands. The three sectional staff is both a short and long range weapon as it can be folded and extended to suit the distance to your opponent.

Water Margin Chain Whip

Added 03-Dec-2006

The Chain Whip has become a popular demonstration weapon in Competition Wushu and when performed in that setting, it is often combined with highly acrobatic jumps and ground work movements. By comparison, Master Wang Li Sheng's pattern is a no nonsense demonstration of what the weapon itself can be capable of, when the fancy and not so useful stuff is stripped right down.
