Wang Panlin, Master Wang's son, obtained the complete styles of Song Style Bagua and Wu style taijiquan from his father. It was sad to hear that in April 2006 Master Wang suffered a cerebral thrombosis, that stopped him from actively continuing his beloved taijiquan and bagua training, but when I visited him in September 2006 I was glad to find him bright and interested in my training. The training of his club in Ditan Park is continued by his disciples mr. Ma and mr. Shi. I started my training in Master Wang his system in Februari 2003 in Beijing in Ditan Park, and try to continue when the opportuniy is there.

In TCC Vereniging Sung it is possible to train the following parts of Master Wang his system:

From his Taijiquan: the first part of the traditional Long Form, and also "The 13 forms of Taiji Rod", which is a traditional Taiji Rod form, nowadays rare even in Beijing. The weapon used is a thin flexible wood rod, about 1.5 meter long.

From Song style Bagua, of which Master Wang is probably the main representative, the Old 8 Palms circular movements, and Bagua straight line exercises.
