One Hand Video: China's Living Treasures Series

It's been decades since it started. This series was one of the first high quality presentations of CMA in the video format. Often hidden among rip offs, the less-than-inspired efforts of Ohara and Unique, and other un-noteworthy efforts; the One Hand Video series lived up to its name by recording true "Living Treasures". They pay their talent and have therefore attracted teachers, the foremost being the famous George Xu, of truly superior quality. NOW they have started to convert their substantial stock to DVD FORMAT. These are what's available and, as times passes, we hope to expand our offering. Buy with confidence.

Yu Hua Long Hsing Yi Cha ChuanNEW! Wu Tai Chi Fast Set (Qigong)  - #DVD 25029
Instruction - 64 min. See a clip of this set. (No sound on the clip but the DVD has sound.)

The expert practitioner Wang Hao Da, demonstrates a preserved training from the Wu styles of Wu JianQuan. Creator Wu, who learned from his father—a student of Yang Lu Chan— wanted the set to be more easily taught so he rounded out the motions and eliminated explosions of power. His son, Wu JianQuan actually deemed the Wu version a style and preserved not only his father's modifications but the "missing" elements of Tai Chi's special power issuance. Wang Hao Da shows this beautifully adding a whole form of training that, until we saw Wang, we assumed only existed in the Thunder Style of the Chen family. Don't expect to learn the set though it is broken down and the names of the movements are given. If you have a good deal of experience use it as an inspiration for developing similar sections of power issuance in your own styles, regardless of name. A great reference and a good example of how Tai Chi cleverly disguises the fact that it is martial to the core.

Instruction - 58 min.  See a clip of this set.

"The following drills are for the purpose of developing Peng Jin. Peng is ward off. Jin is issuing power. In order to use taiji for self defense this teaching is essential.

Peng/ward off, Lu/roll back, Chi/press, An/push, Chou/elbow attack, Lieh/split, Tsai/pull down,, and Kao/shoulder strike. They can be practiced as a group or individually.

These drills isolate each of the eight jins for practicing. In addition to self defense, these exercises are very useful for push hand practice."

Master Lu Gui Rong has spent over fifty years exploring the byways of Tai Chi. He is an expert in Yang style (Wu Wei Chuan lineage), Wu-Hao style and Wild Goose Qigong. This is a complete and self-contained presentation of exercises and applications for Tai Chi stylists. It starts with a series of warm up exercises that are perfectly suited to Tai Chi players; loose, relaxed, powerful and correct. The warm ups are top quality never violating the key principles of the art. The rest of this 60+ minutes DVD is devoted to patterns; each isolating one of the Eight Gates or Eight Primary Energies of Yang style (such as Peng, Lu, Ji An, etc.). Lu shows each exercise as a continued loop repeated in three lengthy sections. Then he shows the application of the movement on George Xu. This is conceivably the best single action demonstration of the Eight Energies, especially with the flavor of Yang style, which we have seen. A lot of clear commentary by Vincent Lynch helps point out the salient details.

2007 Masters from China camp   - DVD#25060
See a clip of this camp.

This camp DVD starts with LiuHeBaFa standing forms and single action basics from this style which has gathered more and more interest from martial artists in the last few years. This first section gives many opening actions almost all of them taken from a horse stance. Then there is Yun Yin Sen’s Demonstration of Primordial Qi gathering and basic LHBF Qigong. George Xu and other helpers translate and explain the formal actions and some of the meaning. Finally there is a demonstration of the form with running commentary by George Xu with an excellent discussion of the word “quiet.”

"This title focuses on the Huayue Xinyi Liuhebafaquan system, also known as "water boxing". This system is from the Sung dynasty and older than taijiquan. On this volume Master Yun Yin Sen focus on the fundamentals and internal practice of this system. Although Master Yun demonstrates the entire form at the end of this title, this should not be viewed as a form instruction title. The content of this camp was to focus on the internal and external fundamentals of this Sung dynasty system. Master Yun came to the USA at the direction of the head of the Xinyiliuhebefaquan Association in Shanghai to disseminate this teaching There are eight sections covering: standing forms, standing instruction, individual basics, "Circulation of the Primordial Qi" form demonstration, "Circulation of the Primordial Qi" form training, "Circulation of the Primordial Qi" form with no sound with which to practice, demonstration of the entire Liuhebaquan form and a scroll of the qualities of this system. The "Circulation of the Primordial Qi" form is their qi internal training method. Practitioners of this system do not refer to it as qigong, however, although in the West in would fall in this category. This form is extremely useful for general health and not limited to the practice of this system. Master George Xu does the commentary and English explanations of this system."
