I am missing practising Chen Old Frame Lao Jia Yi Lu since the lockdown and social distancing started in the UK in March 2020. So this fabulous video and performance by Wu Ming, in her Shanghai school, has helped me practise in my own home. So flowing and precise, subtle and powerful. The way Tai Chi should be, whichever the form.
