Scott,



have you had time to watch the DVD's on Imperial Yang Taijiquan I let you borrow? Just curious of similarities/differences you have found with this system and yours.

After watching the Yang 'Lao Jia' old frame form which is slow, it seems to be a pre- Wu Jian chuan version. Often called small frame yang style, I can see where it came from. Also this form has a jump kick much like the guang Ping form of Taijiquan that comes from Yang Pan Hao's lineage.



The Small Frame form which is fast also looks somewhat like Sun taiji in some ways and but is more like its own thing... none like any taiji i have seen before.



The taiji long fist look like bagua and hsingyi much more than sun style which incorporated the 3 arts together. Since there is actuall circle walking and linear hsingyi in the Yang long fist form itself, the sun taiji having inspired by bagua and hsingyi doesnt have circle walking nor hsinyi as apparent as this form does.
