Master William C. C. Chen.  One of Master Cheng Man-ch'ing's top students.  Famous and well known in his own right, Master Chen added back a number of the postures that Master Cheng deleted from Yang Chenfu's '88' (108) Form.  There are also some syntax changes.   The form is very soft, and emphasizes both spiraling energy as well as boxing elements 'hidden' in the form.

The '60' posture form. This copy is rather old.  I'm guessing this is from 1973.  The 'pink' is just a function of acetate-based film deterioration.

I'm not sure I would have gone with the cloud motif.  Makes it awfully hard to see some parts. Good anyway.

This may be a different way of looking at Taijiquan for some of you.  The beginning of this video covers the first section of the '60' form through 'cross hands.'  Watch Master Chen's gloves and think about where the knuckles and edges of the hands are.  There are more strikes hidden in the form than just 'deflect, parry and punch.'  The video ends highlighting some of these.  Enjoy!
