Wudang "Inner School sets"!

1.Wǔdāng Tàijí Shísān Shì (Wudang Taiji Thirteen Postures)
2.Wǔdàng Tiān Gāng Quán (Wudang Heavenly Stems Boxing)
3.Wǔdàng Tàiyǐ Jiàn (Wudang Great 2nd stem(Great Divinity) Sword)


This is from a Taoist lineage of the Wudang school that is now located in the Heilongjiang (Manchuria) area of China. I can't find the actual Chinese name of the lineage but they do have a few D.V.D.s out and on them they translate the name of the school as the "Innermost School of Taoist Boxing", I'll keep looking for the actual name of the school.

Yi Quan Master!

"Master Han Xing Yuan was born in Nanjing, China in 1915. At a very early age, he began the practice of xing yi chuan with his father Han You San. He equally studied xing yi chuan with Master Wang Zhan Heng as well as wrestling with his uncle Xiao Cheng Shang. At the age of 16, he went to join his older brother, Han Xing Qiao in Shanghai. Both became disciples of Master Wang Xiang Zhai, the founder of yi chuan." Quote from Here
