    I purchased the DVD of your clip in Chenjiagou in 1999 and have used it for a reference since. You are very fortunate to have him, as far as I am aware, he does not come to the UK.

    The midwest is fortunate as we get a lot of chen taiji masters that stroll through. Too bad the stars were not in alignment and I was unable to attend the Chen Xiaoxing seminar, however I did have a great time and learned a lot attending the Chen Zhonghua seminar in Milwaukee a couple of weeks prior.
