Well I guess Emei just isn't my style, some of it seems kind of "wushufied." But that is pure personal preference.
It really doesn't matter though.
If you don't have a teacher, here is what I recommend
-Basic methods of circle walking (both slow and fast). Or Bu-Fa, stepping/foot skills
-Standing Stake/Zhang Zhuang, power training: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid ... ua&pl=true
Those are the ones I do if I ever have time.
-Eight mother palms (or animals)
-Single palm change (maybe double as well)
Make sure posture is right, and steps are right. You will get more out of the basics than you ever will of the "advandced" stuff.
