Portsmouth Square 1965 - 1985
A site honoring the teachings of

Kuo Lien Ying

and the magical time that we were able to learn from Si Fu

"Release the chi,
and let it penetrate like a sword
into the bones."









Kuo Lien Ying performing Tai Chi
This is an extermemly rare film footage of Sifu Kuo Lien Ying performing his Tai Chi Chuan. The footage is from a 1977 KPIX documentary for Chinese New Years. This might be perhaps the only footage showing him performing the form as he taught it. In the clips he is performing "repulse monkey", "green dragon dropping water", "wave hands like clouds" to" single whip", "high pat on horse", separation of right foot kick", sparation of left foot kick", "carry tiger to mountain", and "fist under elbow", to repulse monkey again. As these are just clips, they are not necessarily in the right order.
