What is the Chinese name of this rocking set? I have never heard of it in reference to Yang style of Chengfu/Zhenduo!</B></font><HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
The more I think about it, it may not be part of traditional Yang and now that I looked for the Chinese names they may be classified as a Qi Gong set.
I guess I am trying to find out of the forms that I practice what is traditional Yang. The problem is I have had 3 different teachers, the first I know is not traditional, and he was basically a Wushu guy that knew 24 and 48.
The second one that I had briefly is where this comes from and his lineage may have come from Yang Shouhou or Yang Binhou not Yang Chengfu, but that does not mean it is not part of traditional Yang.
I have no Chinese name for the Rocking set but I do have the 3 names of the forms
Gong Bi, An, Peng.
Basically it is similar to stance training (I have the Chinese name for this, Ji Bin Ba Shi). except you are moving your center and moving weight from one leg to another.
There was also a stepping set that was basically the a particular form repeated, Yun Shou, Xie Fei Shi, Pie Shen Chui, Cai Tui, and Lou Xi Yao Bu.
My third teacher that I have been with for many years, and the longest, does have a lineage to Yang Chengfu, but it comes from Tung Ying Chieh,
And I know that the long form that I do is traditional and I believe the first fast form is traditional and the second fast form comes from Sifu Tung, but I am not sure about the rest of the forms. I know at least 3 are traditional, but I am not sure which.
Short Broadsword form (Da Dow)
Long, fast, broadsword form (Da Dow)
2 different saber forms
a spear form and a staff form. Not to mention various Qi Gong exercises.
And I know that is a very long answer to your question, but I truly wish to find out.
But I would be happy with any answers you could give me.
