Photos: Tai Chi Chuan in unusual places

Hey Tai Chi-friends,

today one can see a lot of beautiful pictures of people doing Tai Chi Chuan in Chinese places or splendid nature. I decided to take some photos in unusual places - enjoy:

Pretty cool, especially like the museum one (artistically anyway :P)
The one with cars - what posture is it? Looks like bagua...

P. S. BTW it's "photos", not "fotos", if you wanna stick to English :)

Hey Dimitri,

thx and this is the beginning of Wu-style Fast Form. Here the story to the photo:

I went to the Remise/Duesseldorf (a place to sell and buy vintage cars) for a walk. What a great place to take a Tai Chi-photo. During it was taken, the security guard (the guy under my arm on the photo) was watching me intensively. I thought, upsy, will I get trouble. The guy approached me and asked, if I remember him. Looking closely, memory came back. A student of 15 years ago. He said he is still training for himself the form several times the week. How nice!


All the best and foto is changed to photo

Dmitri,

I beleive that's near to or right at the the start of the Wu fast form, not bagua. Can't recall the name though.
But I will suggest "waves arms this way and that" :)

Nice Martin, I particularly like the parry and punch in shadow within the industrial setting - very nice!

The old man calmly said: “Among the mighty are those who are mightier. In martial arts, no one presumes to praise his own ability. But because you are young, you don't know the scale of the world, and are unaware of how ridiculous you are. Why be upset?”

Wow, what are the chances!! Small world indeed... 8-)


Thanks for form clarification (George as well), not intimately familiar with Wu fast form. Pretty cool

Essen Germany - Monessen Pennsylvania - Hometown named after Essen Germany because of the Steel Mills (Mon for Monongahela River) - Hauntingly similar at one time - Photo shot feels like home LOL
