Historical Shuai Jiao

Historical Shuai Jiao

"A lot of revision going on lately about Shuai Jiao, it's traditional AND modern history. But some of us still know the truth and there is definitely a "paper trail". So we're going to start outlining and revealing. This is Master Jeng Hsing-Ping, who was head instructor at the Central Police College, and Master Roger Soo, respected senior in the Shuai Jiao clan. This was filmed in the actual Police College in Taipei, Taiwan in 1965"

Sword’s Qì is as a Rainbow— trans by Scott M. Rodell


Jiàn qì rú hóng jiàn xíng shì lóng
jiàn shén hé yī xuánmiào wúqióng
Guǎng Píng Yáng Chéngfǔ tí

The sword’s qì is as a rainbow, the sword moves like a dragon.
Sword and spirit meet as one, its profundity is boundless.

TT Liang Yang Style Taiji Sword Form

                                                    TT Liang Yang Style Taiji Sword Form

"Master Liang started his martial art career in High School in Tientsin where his physical education teacher was the famous Huang Han Hsun, a Master of Praying Mantis boxing. In 1933, whilst attending a British Maritime Customs service training seminar in Beijing, he was able to study Tui Shou (Pushing Hands) with Yang Cheng Fu (1883–1936), a member of the original Tai Chi Yang family, who also taught Cheng Man Ch'ing. Liang was able to study with him for a couple of weeks but did not name him formally as one of his teachers. After a period of serious illness in Shanghai in 1946, Liang began to study Taijiquan with various students of Cheng Man Ch'ing, and began formal training with Cheng himself in 1947. He became Cheng's Da Shih Hsiung (Chief Disciple). Master Liang passed away on August 17, 2002 at the age of 102."
