Chen Shi Taijiquan Gongfu Jia workshop with Marin Spivack held in June/july 2017 Fort Collins, Colorado. This workshop covered many areas of beginning curriculum for this art including basic standing and bone/joint alignment practices, walking drills, first form introduction, fixed stance tuishou, DaLun tuishou and copious applications including qin na, shuaifa, and striking. Attendance was by invitation or prior application as will be the next one. All the video was filmed by mobile phone:

Great videos of solid Chen style basics, also liked the qinna applications from a push hands situation, really showing the flavour of his teacher Chen Yu.

He is showing basics and usage much more openly than 95% of Chinese teachers of taiji, I would argue that a Western student would get much more out of studying with someone like Moling than, say, going to Chen village for one of their intensives.

See some quite good applications there. This is not the first time I see videos featuring Marin, and his material and shen fa don't stop surprise me.
