Running Style (i.e., grass style, Caoshu, or Tsao Shu) is not for beginners’ Chinese calligraphy lessons or those who have not learned Mandarin Chinese since the complexities and confusions of Running Scripts are also very difficult for experienced and native Chinese calligraphers. The information in this video is only basics. http://www.art-virtue.com/styles/tsao/index.htm
Not only Caoshu scripts look differently from other Chinese calligraphy styles, but also a Caoshu script can be written differently between calligraphers or between periods of a calligrapher’s life.

To convert simplified Chinese characters to traditional Chinese characters (not 100% conversion for simplified characters such as 与, 种, 气, and etc.) to decipher the meanings of ancient Chinese Calligraphy models.

To avoid mistakes and confusions, we cannot try to recognize Grass Scripts or study Chinese brush calligraphy based on simplified Chinese characters though some simplified Chinese characters were derived from certain Grass Scripts, or are equivalent, such as 与.

Due to the complexities and difficulties of 文言文 (classical Chinese) , I am not able to translate these calligraphy models to English or 白話文 (vernacular Chinese). For translations to 白話文, please obtain a copy from http://www.books.com.tw/exep/prod/china/chinafile.php?item=CN10076717
