Brennan Translation has posted a translated and illustrated version of Essentials of the Wudang Sword Art by by Huang Yuanxiu. This document was originally published by Commercial PressLTD (Shanghai) in July of 1931. Besides the amazing content and excellent illustrations and photos, it is interesting to look at the calligraphy of these historical masters of swordsmanship. The version can be accessed HERE. (Photo is calligraphy of “Even when there is almost nothing happening, spirit is still transforming,” by Du Xinwu, 1930).
