Rare Video (1930): Grand Master Wang Maozhai (王茂斋) teaching Wu (吴) Style Taiji Straight Sword (剑 - Jian) in Beijing! (10.11.2022)
Grand Master (Lineage Inheritor) Wang Maozhai - teaching Wu (吴) Style Taiji Straight Sword (剑 - Jian) at the Grand Temple (太庙 - Tai Miao) in Beijing (a Confucian Temple from the designation) - now known as the 'Cultural Palace of the Working People' - during the 1930s. It is said that this footage was taken by an American 'Travel Journalist'. Grand Master Wang is teaching his son - Wang Zhiying (王子英). I notice how 'light' the Master holds the sword - as if it is 'not there' or is 'fading in and out' of reality...
