Episode 2 of the Tai Chi Notebook podcast is out!

https://anchor.fm/graham47/episodes/Ep-2-Byron-Jacobs-on-Beijing-martial-arts-e15oo6n

Byron Jacobs is a teacher of Xing Yi and Bagua based in Beijing, China. He’s a student of the famous Shifu Di Guoyong and is heavily involved in the martial arts scene in Beijing. As well as training traditional martial arts he’s also a BJJ practitioner and competitor.

If you’d like to be taught by Byron in the arts of Xing Yi and Bagua, then he has an online learning platform available at https://www.patreon.com/mushinmartialculture - find out what’s available on the platform here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IRjNAhP91nI&t=1s

In this wide ranging discussion we talk about training Xing Yi, Bagua and Tai Chi and whether Wu Shu will ever get into the Olympics. We also find out what it was like to train martial arts in Beijing during the Corona virus pandemic, and what the Chinese BJJ and MMA scene is like.

Towards the end there's a technical discussion of Tai Chi stepping methods between Yang and Sun styles that you may enjoy.
