Just wondering if anyone knows of any video clips showing Wu Hao style Tai Chi.
Any suggestions for links to clips demonstrating other styles would also be welcome.

there is a short demonstration of wu hao on a video called"The Best of American T'ai Chi".In fact this interesting video contains demo's of quite a few different styles including snake style t'ai chi,guang ping and li;
Possibly the rarest of the 5 major styles,in terms of the number of people who practice it,wu hao is also one of the most pleasing to look at;
there are also some demo's of this style done by various participants in the opening ceremonies of jimmy
wong's taiji legacy videos;
(may have to google to find website);these also contain demo's by a goodly number of legendary grandmasters;a must for the serious taichi video collector

Sun style is based on wu/hao (weizhen) variation of taijiquan. The outward posture mechanics are easily seen.

I always get confused as to which Wu style is which, but I think that the video on http://www.taiji.de/ is of Wu Hao style.

Boris- I'm delighted that you brought this to the attention of the forum! I've wondered a lot about what Wu/Hao forms look like. This is clearly NOT the Tai Chi of Wu Chuan Yau, the "Wu Family" Tai Chi. By default, I assume you are correct, that this is Hao Tai Chi.
The forms remind me a lot of the Yang style, more than I would have expected. The change of rhythms and expression of Fa Jing look like Chen, and a few of the postures seem unique to this style.
Again, many thanks! Bill

That's ok Bill, I'm just surprised that not many Tai Chi practicioners with a connection to the Internet know of taiji.de. I would imagine it would be a good source for refreshing peoples memory of the forms if they get stuck (without having tp purchase a DVD/VCD/VHS). As for myself, I haven't learnt enough to start forgetting material :)
I can see what you mean about the remarkable similarity to Yang style, although I can't comment on the likeness to Chen, since I haven't had the pleasure of learning Chen. I've considered it many times but I think it would be best if I got somewhere with my Yang before I take up anything more.

Ah yes! www.taiji.de. Thanks for the reminder. I'm sure I've come across it before. Unfortunately my hard disk recently failed on my main computer and I lost a lot of my Tai Chi links.

still looking at the clip
I really like this style
especialy the footwork its like floating on clouds
anybody here in the forum know more about this style
and also know about a instructional DVD

Yes, there are some. Have been looking at the possibility of exploring this style myself. I don't have any of the DVD's/Videos yet so I can't comment on how good they are. I think it would be very difficult to find many, if at all, that are as good as Dr Lam's productions.
I haven't povided specific links to products but if you enter the following into the Google search engine you will find some items:
Jiang Jianye Wu Hao
Wu Hao Style Tai Chi Chuan Double DVD
