Thank you for making this video available. It was nice to see kung fu of that era.

30:00 I think it is yang feng shi again. Not ba zhou, too many punches.
I think it must be a part of a form, maybe 2nd rd zhai yao.

It is the first form in Su Kegang's di gong quan style.

All,

Here is a link to the video mentioned by Tim and Kevin above:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7WREd...ature=youtu.be

Steve, for some reason Tim doesn't seem to be able to post or send messages on MQ (hence me sharing this link on his behalf). Is there some issue with his account perhaps?

Cheers,

BT

Brendan,

Things are good. We continue to train and I am always learning. This Summer we will go back to Beijing for a two week training camp. It is always fun. It is also great to see my students training and building their own relationships with some really profoundly talented teachers.

My school had its best financial year ever last year. Probably won't equal it this year, economy is too messed up. But it was a nice milestone.

In the meantime I live with my cats above the school in a second story apartment with an enclosed rooftop garden. I have become quite the home body. Probably a good thing as I draw ever closer to sixty.

Four of my senior students have opened their own schools. I tried to warn them but they would not listen.

So, life is good for the most part. I hope all is well with you. The videos you post say a lot. I will never forget seeing your auntie first-hand. She was amazing!

My best to you and your kung-fu family.

Steve

Steve,

I don't know what you did, but it apparently worked. Thanks! Glad to hear life is going well for you these days.

Brendan,

Thanks for posting the link for me, and also for helping with the video conversion process so we could get it uploaded to Youtube.

Question - Can anyone tell me if this video is currently downloadable from Youtube? If it is, please post information on the download process for anyone who might be interested. And if it's not currently downloadable, is there anything I can do from my end to change that?

No worries Tim!

Steve - in this case, no news is good news it seems. Good to hear you and your school are doing so well. Excellent that you have some of your boys out passing it on too. It's a dream of mine but I'm not holding my breath. Damn - nearing 60! I had no idea. I hope I am even still able to walk unassisted in my 50's, ha ha... Yeah, Qin Guihua is awesome. She started training on a daily basis again not long after the year we were last in Qingdao together and is really making up for lost time.

Cheers all,

BT
