"A veritable Tai Chi candy store! So much great footage of Prof. Cheng Man-Ching. Your site is becoming an invaluable library. "

Timothy Pitt, Putnam Valley, NY

"Really enjoying the online videos recently released by William CC Chen. It is definitely worth paying and watching if you like tai chi chuan ... A ton of content on his version of training to throw punches and use of whole body power with Taiji principles. ... There is some additional content too with subscription: Cheng Man Ching teaching in NY videos, Dr. Ping-Siang Tao teaching and demo clips, Tiffany Chen fight videos, Max Chen fight videos, Josh Waitzkin push hands competition videos. "

"I have practised Tai Chi for over 15 years initially with Master Chen. His videos and your others allow me to practice and learn when I am unable to join a class which is often. A valuable bargain. Thank you "

David Killebrew, Newport, RI

"The footage of Master Chen punching is priceless!! "

Jeremy Bacon, New York, NY

"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."

Jeffrey Robbins,

Rare videos of Ping-Siang Tao giving Tai Chi instruction

Dr. Tao doing Yang Short form in group

We’ve been lucky to obtain two very rare DVDs of Dr. Ping-Siang Tao teaching push hands, giving demos, and doing the Yang Tai Chi Short Form. Dr. Tao, a senior student of Cheng Man-Ching and a classmate of William C. C. Chen's, was renowned for his mastery of push hands. He travelled the world giving push hands workshops and was known as the “Master of the Soft Way”.

Cheng Man-Ching teaching Tai Chi push hands

Cheng Man-Ching pushing hands

Watch the complete, superb, Push Hands DVD created from the Cheng Man-Ching “Master Tapes”. The Professor was known for his relaxed and soft style of push hands, along with his powerful pushes. He demonstrates how certain positions leave the pusher vulnerable to high speed, martial arts attacks and emphasizes lightness, relaxation, and positioning to cover any threat - without blocking.

William Chen connects push hands to Tai Chi principles

William Chen teaching Tai Chi push hands

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.

Dr. Ping-Siang Tao pushing hands and teaching students

Dr. Ping-Siang Tao pushing

Dr Tao delighted in demonstrating that softness can overcome hardness - as these videos from his very rare DVDs show. Small and appearing frail, he showed how pushing or pulling an opponent off balance could be done gently, with minimal force. He explains how "yielding while controlling" is key to making push hands effective as martial arts training.

Tuishou Chen Chi-Cheng championship push hands

Dr. Ping-Siang Tao pushing

We've added exclusive videos of world push hands champion Tuishou Chen. He's mainly competed in the Far East, and there's surprising little on the web about him. He's a modest guy, a junior high teacher in Taiwan, and yet he's been unbeaten in world championships since 2002! There's extraordinary footage of Tuishou doing free-style pushing without referees with four world champions, in turn.

Cheng Man-Ching teaching fencing and Tai Chi Sword Form

Cheng Man-Ching doing Sword Form with his class

Our video channel includes streaming the complete Tai Chi Sword DVD of the Cheng Man-Ching “Master Tapes”. Professor Cheng was a master of wielding the double-edged straight Chinese sword. We see the legendary master fencing and teaching the Yang Tai Chi Sword Form. As one his instructors puts it, Professor Cheng made fencing "look like a walk in the park" - with no one even coming close to scoring a touch.

William Chen teaching the Tai Chi Sword Form

Our video channel includes the whole DVD of Grandmaster William C. C. Chen doing the Yang Sword Form, step-by-step.

William Chen connects punching and Tai Chi principles

William Chen demonstrates right cross punch without clenching fist

We've got exclusive videos of Grandmaster Chen teaching the secrets of fast, effective punching. His specialty is the connection between the movements of Tai Chi and achieving great speed and power in punches. He's trained world-champion martial artists, police, military hand-to-hand combat instructors, and professional boxers. "Inside Kung-Fu" magazine called him "among the world's foremost authorities on Tai Chi free fighting".

In a couple of the clips, he does his famous "banana punch", hitting a punching bag while holding a banana in each hand. He explains that the fist never needs to be clenched, either while doing the Tai Chi form or while strking.
