Wu style ("Wudang" of Cheng Tinhung) taiji--Dennis Dilday

Postby Tom on Tue May 07, 2019 8:58 am

Dennis Dilday is a 20-plus-year student of Dan Docherty in "Practical Tai Chi Chuan," the "Wudang" Taiji line from the late Cheng Tinhung. There are not many representatives of this school in the US, which has a substantially larger following in the UK and continental Europe.

Pity they didn't just film the form from one spot start to finish
Don't put power into the form let it naturally arise from the form

I went to his site and saw he is a chiro
Pity he doesn't approach his form with that knowledge as a base
Don't put power into the form let it naturally arise from the form

Interesting posture to have chosen for the video thumbnail!

While having drinks with Tibor Kalman one night, he told me, “When you make something no one hates, no one fucking loves it.” Bollocks to Brexit.

Starting at about 1:37, why would you look at the ground?
