White Crane Sai Pattern

Added 05-Aug-2007


A student of Master Su Ying Han performs a section of a Sai pattern from the Yong Chun White Crane style. Although young, the student is trying to make his movements expressive and loose.

Group pattern: Spear, Staff and Broadsword

Added 28-May-2007


Zhao Zhi Guang, Duan Yong Bin and Zhang Feng perform this pattern with pace and gusto. The key to group patterns, particularly those involving weapons, is good timing between all the participants. You have to not only know yourself but also your partners and be able to adapt instantaneously to any change in position, pace, rhythm or even order of movements.

Long Boxing

Added 28-May-2007


Wang Shuai demonstrates Long Boxing, one of the set patterns in competitions, characterised by fast, clean movements of the Northern School of Chinese Wushu. Some of the jumps in this pattern are so fast that the cameraman is barely able to capture them: speed, airtime, number of revolutions, height and complexity of the aerial technique all win extra points.

Tai Cho 1

Added 09-Apr-2007


This is first of three linked videos: Wang Bing Shen performs a Tai Cho (Tai Zhu) style pattern. Typical for a southern style, the movement of the feet are small and compact. The low sitting stances give the practitioner enough stability to be able to generate force, which is channelled into fast blocks, punches and open hand strikes. Tai Cho is one of the best known styles in Fujian Province, translated as the Grand Ancestor Fist. It is also one of the key elements of a related southern style ? Ngo Cho or Wuzhu ? the Five Ancestors Fist.

Yongtai Tiger Style

Added 09-Apr-2007


This issue we have included a video of a different southern style, Yongtai Tiger ? performed by Master Tang Dong Heng ? in order to show both the differences and the similarities with Tai Cho. Notice how the underlying principles, including low southern stances, are almost identical, even though they are put together in a different way. There is a lot of cross-over in the Fujianese styles, knitting them together into one distinct family.
