Interesting-I studied with Sophia Delza who studied with Ma in the mid 50's, to the best of my nowledge she didnt teach push hands, although Wu style had a comprehensive method involving several different ways of performing push hands in a video

Thanks-I didnt know she was on film. I studied with her when she was in her eighties, if I remember correctly at Carnegie Hall studios, she was a tough lady, taught TCC the same way a ballet master would teach.

Thanks for sharing. i noticed she referenced Dr. Li Liquan whom i met and studied a little bit with in Shanghai. I passed this on to my Wu friends who continue to study with Dr. Li Liquan as disciples.
