Sun Style

Created by Sun Lu-Tang, who was a master of Xingyiquan and Baguazhang. He learned Hao style from Hao Wei-Zhen.

He developed a 93 movement traditional Sun style form which he practiced every day. Unfortunately this form was not standardized and quickly diverged among Sun's top-level students. Therefore a standardized form of 73 movements was created, backed by great amounts of research and development including input from Sun Jian-Yun and many other Sun style masters. The resulting standardized Sun form is considered a fair and accurate representation of Sun Lu-Tang's true art and flavor.
