I am, yet again and yes I know it's disgusting, on my way to Florida.
This is becoming a regular habit, and I intend to keep it that way.
Hey, what can I tell you? I'm not rich, I have a best friend that owns a house just outside of Tampa and I have a father-in-law that owns a condo just outside of Ft. Lauderdale. It's a horrible burden to have to keep visiting them there during the winter months, but I am doing my best to accept this terrible fate on such a regular basis.
I did a search for Yang style TCC in those locals, and I came up with a link to a school in the city of Stuart, FL, which is about an hour and change north of Ft. Lauderdale.
That link is:http://www.geocities.com/taichifl/
Apparently this is a school in the Yang Cheng Fu lineage, descended through Yang Shau Chung, who is shown on the geneology list on the Yangfamilytaichi website as being Yang Cheng Fu's eldest son, named Yang Zhen Ming, also known as Yang Sau Chung, and through his disciple Gin Soon Chu.
My question is pretty simple, actually.
Is anyone familiar with this lineage? Or with the forms of Gin Soon Chu?
I have sent an e-mail to the address listed on the website, asking if there would be classes or demonstrations I might be able to observe while I am there, but have not heard anything back yet.
Simply curious, that's all. As this appears to be a legitimate Yang Cheng Fu lineage style, I am fascinate by the idea of seeing the forms as taught by the Gin Soon Chu Tai Chi Chuan Federation.
If anyone has any idea about them, I'd like to know, please.
