Hi Matt,

I have not heard of this type of Tai Chi, but it looks to me like Mandarin translated according to the old Wade Giles System. I don't think Cantonese is ever transliterated with a "shi" syllable.

In pinyin, the name might be "Taijiquan he shi fa." I tried searching on some likely character combinations (e.g., 太极拳合势法), but came up with nothing. Maybe someone with more knowledge of Tai Chi or Mandarin than I can do better.

Take care,
Audi

I emailed the person at the website.

Brent Hambly replied to my query. He didnt say much other that it was a basic Yang Style chi kung.

someone on another board mentioned- "Ho Shi is most likely Cantonese for "breathing." Fa simply means "method."

but I agree that is not Cantonese.

I asked Brent:

Does the tai chi ho shi fa just use postures from the form?

For example, my teachers Yang chi kung uses movements like wave hands like clouds and repulse monkey repeated in a 'tai chi ma bu' stance without stepping. Similar?


But he didnt reply back.
