Wu Style Tai Chi

Added 04-Jun-2006

The full Wu/Hao style tai chi pattern. As explained in the accompanying Silver article this month, Wu/Hao tai chi is a rare style with uniquely tall and compact movements.

This is a long pattern, with a large file size, but well worth getting hold of. Filmed in Shanghai, April 2006.
