Ye Xiaolong

Ye Xiaolong was an important transition teacher for me.  I studied Lan Shou and Push-Hands with him for three months, 6 days a week, 3 hours a day.  There was usually one or two other students around.  His main method of teaching (besides saying "Bu Hao!*" all the time) was to put his hands on me and physically correct my movement.  It was very satisfying.

I'm putting up a new website soon, and while looking for images of my teachers I came across these videos of him doing Yang Style Taijiquan.  I think of him as a Lan Shou Master so if you watch these videos look for the sudden long tearing motions characteristic of Lan Shou.  There are also a bunch of old George Xu Videos if you hunt around on this Youtube Channel.  (Warning, you'll probably want to turn the sound off.)

* Bu Hao means 'No Good.'
