Just got back from my 5th trip to Thailand. If you ever go there and want to join the local Tai Chi/Taijiquan groups in the parks. Lumpinee park is where everyone is. I typically hang out with the Yongnian Taiji group. They warm up with some of the linear fajin work, do long form 2x, they also do 24 form, 42 form. Weapon practice they do traditional yang saber and straight sword as well as 32 and 42 sword. They also do a stretching set that was similar to yi jin jing. The group is from Yang Chen Fu's disciple Zhou bin. Zhou bin's son Zhou You bin teaches there sometimes. http://www.china-taichi-guide.com/Taichi-Schools-Teachers/Zhao-You-Bin.php
All the Thai Yoga massage I got in Thailand really helped nagging injuries and increased range of motion. I love Thai massage!
