Six Harmony Praying Mantis: That Was Then, This Is Now

THEN: Several years ago, Plum contacted Sifu Jian Gao, disciple of grandmaster Ma Han Qing, to represent his excellent DVD on Liu He Tang Lang. There is not very much information on this system (as those who practice it can attest). So we were happy to be able to add to our collection. Only one […]

Restocks of Rare Editions, North and South

You’ve proably seen our little “Want List” boxes throughout the site. And you may have also noticed that some of them stay in the “not available” state for months without being taken down. Are we really trying to torture people? No, it’s just that hope springs eternal. For instance here are two products we thought […]

Second Look: Quick Whip Stick

In re-reviewing a DVD from one of our favorite teachers (Deng Fu Ming) we noticed something we had missed the first time around: his DVD on  Sun Taiji Partner Practice contains an added clip at the end, a beautiful and somewhat sophisticated whip stick form.

LiuHeBaFa, the historic film

Here is the first presentation of any import on the style LiuHeBaFa in the Western world. Long out of print, this early demonstration of the whole form showed a style few people had seen before. The smooth, graceful and river-like actions surprised all of us with familiar movements yet unknown names. Coming from hazy origins, […]

A Rare Baji Announcement

At Plum, we love Baji Quan. But there is not that much available and, even some of what is produced is out of print. So, it is with a bit of excitement that we announce the return (in limited supply) of Su Yu Chang’s Liu Da Kai Baji DVD. We don’t have a tall stack […]

We have remastered the original series—Clever Hands (parts 1 & 2) and Subtle Skills (parts 1 & 2); […]
