Authentic ancient long forms brought to America from Indonesia and China, by Master Liu Seong (Count Willem A. Reeders 1917-1990). He taught them to his widow, Marilyn Feeney, and certified her to continue his school. Along with another senior student, Michelle Swanson, she teaches Tibetan Taichi, QiGong, a number of katas, and weapon skills at their Albuquerque, NM Garuda Studio.
If you want to learn the oldest known taichi, contact Garuda. This form differs from the modern styles in several ways. No repetition of postures, strict breath coordination, and attention to position, balance, gaze, etc. This rigorous approach enhances both the physical and mental benefits, external and internal, of an authentic system that dates back centuries to the days of temple training.
