Review

Dr. Yang's ability is of the same high caliber as his written treatises. --Master Jou, Tsung-Hwa

Dr. Yang surely follows in the footsteps of the Yang style founder Yang Lu-Chan, who also first studied the Shaolin hard styles and later studied and mastered the soft style of Taijiquan. Dr. Yang stimulates this tradition, which will surely bear the fruit of high achievement within the martial arts. --Grandmaster Liang, Tung-Tsai

Man of the Year 2007 --Inside Kung Fu magazine

By Alain B. Burrese TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on December 7, 2009
After watching "Taiji Chin Na In Depth: The Seizing Art of Taijiquan" with Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming, the first thing that comes to mind is "WOW!" The amount of information and instruction contained in this two-disc set is phenomenal. Originally the information was presented on five videos, now you can have all five on two discs with over six hours of instruction. With the menu system on the DVD, it is very easy to select the portion of the program you wish to study, making these even better resources than video tape.

The format of the instruction is very good. First, Dr. Yang teaches the technique, and he does so with more detail than you find in some programs, which I really like. I've always liked video programs where the instructor teaches to the camera rather than just demonstrating. Dr. Yang teaches in this program. He then brings in two students and allows them to do the technique and he corrects them when they don't perform it just right. Dr. Yang explains that the problems his students have might be the same as the viewer, and by helping them, he'll help the viewer too. I believe it is a very good way to present the material on DVD. As an added feature, there are subtitles across the bottom of the screen. However, they do not match what Dr. Yang is saying exactly. They convey the meaning, but are not exact. The person who really wants to learn will spend many hours watching portions of this program at a time with a training partner and practicing the techniques Dr. Yang presents.

Disc One contains three programs or courses. The first course focuses on 19 techniques from the same beginning clockwise coiling move.

Exceptional!!!

Brilliant Instruction!!!

Dr. Yang is a Master Martial Artist and a Master Instructor! His instruction is wonderfully concise. His demonstration: clear and accurate. He conveys to you the perfected motion(the goal you want to achieve), while at the same time he is cognizant that there are students of various levels of experience watching this video.

After several demonstrations of the same technique (from different angles, when necessary) Dr. Yang allows his students to, then, demonstrate the very same technique. Bringing their level of experience to the situation. Bringing their level of mistakes to the techniques being taught. -Probably a mistake you, yourself, are making- This allows Dr. Yang to correct the mistake, thereby deeply anchoring the movement into your skill set.

This is not a polished studio production with fancy lighting and special effects (nor, any of that damnable Chinese guitar twanging away consistently in the back ground). This is a real time classroom atmosphere, and you are drawn in. Your attention captured, your mind focused on the lesson at hand.

After viewing this video, I look forward to purchasing Dr. Yang's Taijiquan DVD.

This DVD set is one of the best martial arts instruction videos I've ever seen. I've had Dr. Yang's book on the topic of Chin Na since I was in high school, and now nearly 20 years later, I've finally seen the sifu in action, and it was well worth the wait.

Each technique is explained in depth with a verbal description of what each joint is doing as you watch the action taking place. Dr. Yang starts with the fundamentals of wrist movements and how they are used to defend yourself while incapactitating an attacker. Every chapter that follows in the DVD set builds on what was taught in the previous chapter until in the end, the student is using a complex wrist/elbow lock accompanied by a choke hold.

There are literally hundreds of locks and grappling moves explained, described, and demonstrated on this 2-disc set. That is more than enough to get a would-be attacker on his knees and in submission through any number of combinations.

I particularly enjoyed the sequences in the bonus video where Dr. Yang demonstrates several sequences of hand-to-hand combat giving all the previous training a definite air of practicality.

This video has made a wonderful addition to my martial arts training.

If you already own the VHS tapes from this series, the DVDs are well worth obtaining. On DVD 2 Bonus material is presented with Master Yang demonstrating over 80 Taiji Chin Na techniques in slow motion and at full speed. He categorizes these moves by the Eight Doors and Chin Na found in pushing hands. This bonus material was not on the original VHS tapes of this series.

The title, which includes the words "IN DEPTH", tells it all. This series goes much deeper than other material I have seen from YMAA on the Taiji style of the seizing art of Chin Na. As many practitioners are aware, Taijiquan has numerous Chin Na applications throughout the form. Taijiquan is especially suited for Chin Na applications as the yielding and softness that precede the final application of Taijiquan is usually soft and misleading to the other person. This is a perfect set up for applying a Chin Na technique.

Chin Na applications are more effectively and successfully performed when the practitioner is able to establish the proper hold. If a person tries to apply a Chin Na technique with too much initial force, then the person receiving the technique is alerted and with understanding can more easily evade the Chin Na technique. Taijiquan can lead to a very well grounded Chin Na technique that is difficult to discern until one is completely under it's power.

Yang, Jwing-Ming is involved in the teaching throughout the series. Pascal and Julien, two students of Dr. Yang who were involved in demonstrating the Yang Style 2 man fighting set DVD, are two of the "victims" and demonstrators on this tape. The other is Tony Chee. I would imagine that anyone who studies with Dr. Yang would be knowledgeable in how to neutralize the effects of a Chin Na technique.
