    I like Wudang forms, they take a lot of leg strength to do properly although some are more for show than fighting but then there are those that are actually for fighting. There is a Taoist priest from Wudang not to far from me (who knows the fighting of it) I was supposed to go train Xingyiquan with a few months back, but injury kept me away. He also teaches Wudang Taijiquan and Baguazhang and I would like to go train that with him, and I might at some point, but the Taiji stances are so low I need to fully recover before I go and. Sorry, got off track there, the thing about Wudang Taiji is that from a Taiji person’s point of view (one that has done a lot of Yang and a little Chen) Wudang Taiji in application (and that gentleman near me does know the applications) are much more like what you would see out of Shaolin that what you would see out of the Yang family or Chen Jiaguo and that, from my Taiji perspective makes it very interesting. Also another thing that makes the Wudang Taiji looking like it is from shaolin that I recently found interesting was a quote from Shaolin Shi Han Lei (who was pre-Communist China Shaolin)

    “”[The] Secrets of Shaolin move[ment] [are] learned [doing] slowly everything you [would do] very fast. [For] every practice you [do], you [do] one hundred slow and fifty [at] middle speed. [This is] better than [when] I learn[ed], [for] I [had to do] each a thousand times slow before [going] faster once, [then again] a thousand slow [to] one time fast. [But] students [are] many more impatient [now].”

    Makes me wonder if the slow part of Shaolin was not an influence on or influenced by Wudang. But then Wudang these days tends to start students fast and then go to slow, but that is a different discussion and this one has rambled enough

    Thank You for posting that, it appears to be a combination of a few styles or is it was actually form old Wudang, maybe it is where a few styles came from

    Sorry so long, this is what happens when I go online and post stuff when I am dealing with sleep deprivation 🙂
