Part timers only

(3 out of 5 stars)

"While this might thrill the "new age" practitioner - and considering I've seen martial approaches interpret forms/routine differently and remain martially viable - this is definitely not as the creator intended by the look of it. Seek out the work of GM Chen Xiaowang... or even another variant of short modern routine by GM Chen Zhenglei... if you are serious about practicing Chen style Taijiquan but wish for a shorter routine than the traditional Old Frame First Routine (the 38 is derived from it)."
Not exactly Chen Style

"While Master Xing is incredibly expressive, and I would have to believe very passionate in his practice, what is displayed has only a passing semblence to the form as taught by it's creator. If you were to observe tapes of Grandmaster Chen Xiao Wang or Ren Guang Yi side by side with this you would notice almost every one of the 38 forms has differences - some very significant."
