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 first part is a 3-minute kata (rather long). Next, we see a partnered application with very smooth movement and constant connection.
The video ends with more “scientific” exercises using different specific and rather ingenious training devices.”
