This is a remarkable early film showing Chinese master Chu Minyi demonstrating Taijiquan selected by Leo Tamaki who offers the following comments:
“I discovered this video while exploring martial arts subjects on the Internet. This is a Taijiquan form called ‘Wu’ demonstrated by a Chinese dignitary named Chu Minyi. Apparently, this is one of the oldest surviving videos on this discipline.

The video ends with more “scientific” exercises using different specific and rather ingenious training devices.”
