One of the highest quality videos of this rare performance of the 37 Form by the great man himself. Clearly late in his life, probably shortly before his death in 1975. The subtlety and sensitivity of his performance is, of course, sublime. To see the creator of a form demonstrate like this is as good as it gets for Tai Chi practitioners. Compact and understated in many ways, it is a piece of Tai Chi history.
