"Having complete DVDs on your channel is a big help.
I was learning the sword form from a DVD also on your site, but it got lost when I moved and now it's pretty expensive.
Please keep up the valuable service you provide for us Taiji players."

William C. C. Chen, New York, NY
Editor's note: Since I was teenager, I've been studying Tai Chi Chuan and martial arts with one of
Professor Cheng Man-Ching's best known students, Grandmaster William C. C. Chen.
When I explained to him about wanting to build a well-edited, inexpensive video streaming channel for pooling together the
best paid Tai Chi and martial arts content from all styles, he was kind enough to be the first to contribute his commercial
DVDs and private video collection. (S. Asherman)

William Chen connects push hands to Tai Chi principles
Grandmaster Chen demonstrates the difference between "energy pushing" and pushes that come from tensing the muscles of the arms and legs.
He shows how to uproot an opponent, how to disappear under a push (without injuring your back),
how to resist by sinking down instead of using muscles to push back, and how to drag down a person who is pushing by their arm.

Tuishou Chen Chi-Cheng championship push hands

Yet he's been unbeaten in world championships since 2002!
