Sidney Tang, Chicago, Hong Kong

Rima McCabe created a wu style tai chi page (new) 23.11.1995 which includes pictures of the moves. She designed it as a supplement to the teachings of her Chinese speaking teacher, for english speakers, but the pictures of the moves, and the animation should make sense in any language.
Alexander Franz, Duesseldorf

"very interested in purchasing posters (based on the page) if available"
Romon Aperia, Victoria Australia

Lee Scheele, CA

"Kudos on your Tai Chi Web-page. It's among the best I have browsed so far. . . . The idea with the animated sequences is great . . . The way the form is done on your page closely resembles the way I have learned to do it."
Joern Wnnerstroem, Denmark

"Very impressive, I must say, both in content and in presentation where did you get the diagrams from - I recognise them from "The Tao of Tai Chi Chuan", but the images look too good a quality to be scanned in from the small pictures there - Do you have access to some original drawings? Anyway, must go - once again, a nice site, keep up the good work! "
John Constable, Cambridge, England

"I find your pages fascinating. I look forward to seeing the rest of the taiji pages!"
Bob Colley, Hawaii

"I was really impressed by the animations on your page. I haven't seen anything quite like what you have done. . . The questions format works well also. . . the overall structure is great . . ."

Wu Style Form Tai Ji Quan, Rima McCabe. This beautiful site truly shows how the technology of the web can be used to help teach the ancient art. Check out the neat animation....
Congratulations on a wonderfully designed site. I am the on-line editor for Furyu and have just added your site to our Chinese Arts page along with a few others. Yours is clearly the most graphically interesting and pleasing. ...

I'll visit again and again as I try to get better at Tai Chi, but for really nice html, I'm impressed with what you have achieved.
The animation is especially nice - since I'm visually oriented.

Wu Style Animated Tai Chi Page
Well worth a visit for anyone interested in the Wu style of tai chi. The page provides animated drawings of various moves in Wu style Tai Chi.

Your Tai Chi pages are the best I've encountered! I am looking for information on Wu Style as I have studied it since January. We have quite a lot info on the net about Yang style, but Wu seems rare.
Thanks for your efforts!
Cathy Donahue, VA

Nice web site! I am impressed with time, effort and care you have invested to produce a really unique and informative Tai Chi Chuan site. There are more Wu stylists around than you might realize and the family is making a determined effort to reach an international standard form based on the 5th generation. There is no family sanctioned web site although it is a topic of discussion....
Sam Purdy, Michigan

Greg Halpern, just north of Chicago

Thanks so much for this truly wonderful site. It's rare to find such detail about Wu style, which is what I've been studying for just about a year here in Cincinnati! The animations are tremendous and do really help see things that are otherwise overlooked in stills and verbal descriptions. ... Again, thanks.
I'll be back often!
Reed Anderson, Cincinnati Ohio

I have severe arthritis .... and have been drawn to Tai Chi. I saw some Chinese citizens doing it in a park on television, and thought that it would be a good thing for me to learn.
Well, I waded through about three libraries' worth of web pages before I found a page that would actually share the information with me---yours. I'm nowhere near a teacher, and if I was I wouldn't have the money. ... I would go to the library, but I don't have a car and the only libraries nearby are more likely to have books on rodeo than Tai Chi.
Thanks to you, though, I have enough to start with.
Micheal Hardgrove, Wewoka, OK

Firstly, I just want to say how much I like your animation sequence.
Secondly, I am very interested in using your illustrations for a Tai Chi story for a feature on the Microsoft Network ... which has a user base of approx. 2 million ...

Some comments about the handmade educational tai chi books based on this site that we design, produce and distribute:

about previews of the current edition
"...I found just the very quick look I was able to give it provided me with some valuable insights on a couple of sections of the form. Seeing the old posture with the larger circles makes some of the applications more clear and that helps me with the proper focus.

Keep at it — it will be a valuable addition to Tai Chi literature."

about the first edition
"the book just arrived. It is terrific. Thanks very much and keep up the good work."

recent customer comments
"...Very intriguing—and practical—design. Reminded me a little of Q's gadgets in the James Bond movies. ... "

Sifu Eddie Wu encouraged me to have my school listed on your site. I have submitted my information for approval. ...
