Subject: [LiuHoPaFa] Re: Jiang Jian Ye Liu He Ba Fa movement names

> Jiang's LHBF has the feel of Terry Dunn's, slow and tai chi like. I think his LHBF is a modified set, compiling LHBF with lots of Yang, Chen, Wu tai chi, ba gua and xing yi. A long and pretty set, but I think there are probably better videos out there on LHBF.
> > > I've been a member for a while and thought it was time to post.
I picked up Jiang Jian Ye's Liu He Ba Fa video set out of curiosity.
His set has 96 movements, which is longer than the traditional 66 movement set.

I found his set to have movements that look like they were taken right out of tai chi, bagua and xing yi sets, for example,  there were moves that were done just like in Chen tai chi, Wu tai chi and xing yi 5 elements. I'm guessing he is giving "flavour" to the set from all his experience in the other internal arts. I'm posting his movement names FYI.
