[quote]A lot of people hang around 228 park doing push hands, light sparring and the like on Sundays 10am-4pm. That is a good place to ask around about different styles. I will see if I can find some good Wu style classes.
I would appreciate that Chainsmoker. I just don’t really know who to ask, how to ask, and how to know who is a good teacher.
For the poster(s), here’s a few I know about.
An American called Michael who (very) occasionally posts here under the name of Peacewarrior (I think) has an Aikido Dojo in Neihu. Aikido is a Japanese ‘soft’ style (which means it focuses more on using you opponents energy against them etc).
A lot of foeigners study with a guy who’s supposed to be pretty good and teaches Wing Chun, which sounds interesting. I think it’s related to Shaolin style Kung Fu, but was developed so that women could use it without being at a disadvantage because of their lack of strength.
A friend of mine studied Ba Gua (a sister martial art to Tai Qi) under a teacher who’s supposed to be good, and has classes on the Sth side of CKS Hall in the evenings.
You’ll have to search or ask around for contact details on any of these.
