Master Faye Yip Videos

I came across some new (to me) videos of Master Faye Li Yip. Excellent! The first is Tai Chi sword. It’s made up of several clips, the first of which looks like 42-sword, but most of it is Wudang Tai Chi sword. Beautiful!

The other two are both Fan Form II, both beautiful performances (and great uniforms, especially the pink and black).

standing like a pine”). Translation by John Fairbairn.

I tend to consider Master Faye’s demonstrations of this form definitive, seeing as her father created the form. A third video of this form, also by Faye Yip, can be found on the page for Fan Form II.
