    Unfortunately, as everyone knows, many other websites and webpages and videos appear and then disappear from the Internet scene.  Authors do not pay to keep up their web hosting services, loose a "free hosting" option, change filenames, recode away from HTML, or decide to remove webpages for various reasons.  Consequently, links to some good webpages or videos become invalid and the files are no longer found on the Internet.  You may find a some of these "dead links" to nonexistent webpages or videos cited below; and, there is no way to avoid this troublesome situation.  For this reason, when you do find a good and useful webpage, be sure to save the webpage to a folder on your hard drive or server.

The Competition Routine of Sun Style Taijiquan.  Zhong Shan, Chief Editor.  Wu Don, Executive Editor.  Li Wei, Editor of English Version.  Published in Beijing, China, 2003.  151 pages.  ISBN: 7537720851.  A detailed study of the Sun Taijiquan 73 standard competition form.  Book comes with a VCD, color, 50 minutes.  The accompanying VCD ISRC: CN-C20-02-0040-O/V-G8.  I could not find identification of the performer or instructor on the VCD.  There is no English narration on the VCD, just music.  The book is written in both English and Chinese.  I used this very useful book to determine the names of the movements and to help me prepare the the glossary for Sun Lu Tang's internal martial arts system.  The book includes many numbered black and white photographs of each movement in the 73 Sun Form.  The book is part of an "Chinese-English bilingual series of guides to learning and practicing the competition routines of Tai Ji Quan."  Other titles in the series help you learn to perform the competition versions of the Yang, Chen, Wu, Wu (Hao), Sun, and 42 Forms.  I benefited from reading their suggestions on how to prepare for and participate in Taijiquan competitions.  I ordered the Sun Taijiquan 73 form book and VCD from Tai Chi Depot.  VSCLC.
