Sun Style compared to CMC Yang Style

Tim's Discussion Board: Tai Ji Quan : Sun Style compared to CMC Yang Style
   By Stephen Ott on Friday, October 01, 2010 - 12:38 pm: Edit Post

Hey Tim and All,

I studied with Master William Chen in NYC, who practices CMC's Yang style, for about six years and I'm really looking forward to the Sun Style book and DVD's to broaden my studies because I see the following relations:

1-both small frame
2-both have clear martial applications/effectiveness( people can debate CMC, but Master Chen is a fighter)

I wondered if Tim and others shared that opinion?

Here is a video of Master Chen:

Thanks for any input.

My small experience with Zheng taiji is that it is a template of how to move mindset. It trains & develops correct posture alignment and body dynamics with corresponding looseness (relax), foundation for all body movement. That is true 'martial application'. It is 'effective' if you become to move well ... it become your nature.

About Sun taiji I only read from Tim's wonderful translations, my favourite books ... I learn so many ideas. Thank you.
