    Funny

    Was watch a video off youtube and was wondering everyone on he was talking about the guys skill and having tai chi, pa kua, and hsing-i, but no one said anything about all his students wearing many types if GIs? Or about how his lower students forms were so "karater" like?

    This and the fact their curriculum structure (going from external to internal) is similar to how SD was back in the 60's, 70's, early 80's.

    There are many differences in what hung I siang taught in tsd. One of the main differences is sin kwang the made claims about the history of these arts that were not true. He told lies.
    Look at the quality of Bagua Lou du xiu demonstrates in that documentary, he is shown I a gi getting instruction from hung I siang. Compare this to sin the or bill Leonard's representation of Bagua ...

    The gi is not the problem with Shaolin do ...

    Sin kwang the made up stories about the gi and disguising the art from authorities by wearing a gi.
    Full of apparent lies and vague history bs.

    Hung I siang used a gi and japan type of rank because he likes the Japanese way of organizing a system and a gi is strong enough to train in.
    No apparent lies or vague history bs.

    I wasn't comparing performances. Just the curriculum structure and uniforms. I agree the quality of movement is different. The Chen style demonstrated by sin the' is hard to watch. He obviously didnt learn that from a master of that style. The bagua I'm still not sure about. He uses the lion step instead of the mud stepping technique. And when he's taped, it's always him breaking it down slowly. Ive seen tape of him doing the yang 64 form and it wasn't bad.
    Chen style tai chi looks amazing when the form is done well. But in a fight in the ring it looks just like everything else.

    Yes I get all the history and story stuff but I was just talking about a lot if the early stuff with the gis and the apperance of the performance of lower, and some upper, material in SD. Personally I could care less put I am always interested in others thoughts.

    Sin kwang the internal examples
    You can see sin the and bill leonard doing bad forms.

    My YouTube channel linked below shows some of my understanding of the tai chi CHUAN and push hands I learned while in the system.
    It is based on what gary grooms taught me.

    Mike reid from csc marietta has a lot of videos up.

    What exactly are you looking for?

    My understanding is that hung I Hsiang thought a student needed to learn "external" or Shaolin style of martial arts before learning internal.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hung_I-Hsiang

    The above link may give some insistence or at least show where to find more information.

    It is a interesting parralel in the way of organizing a system.
    When I saw the bbc documentry on hung I Hsiang in the mid 1990's (before I was aware of sin the's bull****) it seemed they were very similar.
