This review by a Chen taijiquan practitioner on yiquan class by Yao Chengrong republished over on Formosa Neijia is totally fascinating. Focusing on “essence”, “internal power” as a shortcut approach to skill in internal arts – I don’t see how one could go wrong if that is indeed possible… there is plenty of time to learn other externally more difficult things like taiji forms, xingyi animals, bagua palms, etc. later, after gaining some fundamental “power” and skill… I wish I could go train at this school starting tomorrow…
