YouTube Videos of Cheng Man-Ching Forms, Applications and Push Hands

Some of these videos on YouTube were so interesting that I wanted to be able to easily find them again.  Then I realized I should also make it easy for you to find them.  Hence this YouTube videos section of the web site.

The following video, without sound, shows Cheng Man Ch'ing as a younger man doing the form. Notice that the postures are more defined then in videos of him as an older man

As he aged, Cheng Man-Ch'ing's forms became softer and more graceful although the postures themselves appear less defined. He is incredibly relaxed in these older videos.

 
Cheng Man Ching Video from 1950's or 1960's
Cheng Man Ching
This is a video that surfaced from either the 1950's or 1960's of Cheng Man Ching in Taiwan. Around the middle of the video he does his form followed by a group of his student doing the form with him. They take a long walk together first. Cheng Man Ching also picks a flower to give to one of the ladies!
