    Yang Jwing Ming, I have trained with, but it was Taijiquan Push hands and a little Qinna, His main school is now in California, but it use to be in Boston and that is where i trained with him. He still has multiple schools in Massachusetts, I trained some Xingyiquan at his old main Boston school shortly after his son moved to California to teach with his father, who had also recently moved to California, Dr Yang still does teach in Massachusetts about once a year. Long Fist, White Crane, Yang Taijiquan, Qigong and Qinna.

    And I mean no offense to anyone with this, I find discussions about White Crane rather interesting, seriously considered studying it with Yang Jwing Ming once, but the one thing Yang Jwing Ming does not teach is Sun Taijiquan, and a style Sun Lutang never studied was White Crane. I am trying to figure out Sun style here, not white crane.

    and my apologies for a weird double post thing, I edited the first and it made a second. I suspect it is my internet connection

    Hey Xue Sheng, I'm guess i'm late to this thread, it's been awhile since I dropped by here.

    I see you're still pursuing Sun Taiji. I remember a thread way back where you said you used to study some in Boston? Is that right? Are you still in the North East USA? I'm in Southeastern, CT. (Mystic area) if you're ever around. Reason I say that is practicing and getting answers with real persons is obviously better than using forums.

    Anyway, I remember writing some stuff on another forum and i really don't want to re-type ALL of it or copy and paste. I hope a Mod doesn't mind the quick link. It may help answer some of your questions about Wuji...But here goes:

    the rum soaked fist: internal martial arts forum • View topic - Rectum is lifted

    I start at the 9th post down.

    Anyway, hopefully sooner (or later) when Vaccines come out, hit me up if you're ever in the area. Plus, I have a good buddy in Cambridge, MA. that I visit occasionally. Best "O"

    I studied a little Push hands and a little Xingyiquan in Boston, but go back far enough I studied TKD in Boston too , and Jiujutsu in Winthrop, or at least I think it was Winthrop, that was back in the early 1970s.

    I am still in the Northeast, but in upstate NY, near the Adirondacks. If I'm ever in the Mystic area I will look you up, thanks, and thanks for the link.

    I live in REAL upstate NY, not that place south of me that pretends to be upstate NY just because it is north of NYC. There is a lot of NYS above Westchester county :)
