    What about this video of Chen style Tai Chi Chuan.

    This video is from a female martial arts woman Laura Bonthuis from Holland ( Europe ). She is performing a Xinjia Chen style martial arts form.

    Here and there you see what unstable stances and balance problems.

    Does anyone know this form? What do you think?

    If it is of any interest:

    I don't know anything about the form, but I think you just convinced me to find a good Tai Chi teacher. The grace and power on display here is pretty impressive, but cleverly veiled.

    Great video!
