Daqingshan teachers all have the dark blue t-shirt with the white Chinese writing on it.

This might look taiji to many. Indeed this is Taijiquan against all styles.

chenwithhongThis is mine. What is yours?
  1. Continue to watch my masters’ original videos and read their original writings.
  2. Teach sword and broadsword.
  3. Stay away from the corruption of the society and of the taiji world. This means I will not copy or forward anything from the web. Every word must come from my heart, from my own experiences and from my own hand.
