    I just started a chen style class, and the teacher said it will take a year to learn the form. They said that at the yang class also, and it took me three months there. I don't want to wait a year to learn the chen form. Are there any videos online of someone doing the chen form?

    These DVDs are good and very thorough:

    You could easily learn it in less than a year if you devoted a lot of time and energy to it. Then again, you could go to class once a week for ten years, never practicing outside of class and never giving much thought to it and still not really "know" the form. Keep in mind though that there's a huge difference between "knowing" the external movements of the form and real mastery.
