Sample characters (not a phrase) in this video:
玄 abstruse
無 nothing
公 public
乃 therefore

There are several ways of copying Chinese calligraphy models - 臨摹 linmo "Emulation" or 臨帖 (Japanese call it linsho 臨書 ).

Emulation can be done in the following ways:
1. Nearly the same duplicate (the most difficult, but the practitioner learns more.)
2. 背臨 Memorized emulation - practiced after the practitioner has done (1) for a long time and without looking at the model, or just glance at it briefly. (shown in this video)
3. 意臨 After the practitioner has done (1) and (2) for a long time, copying with more freedom without focusing strictly on the appearance but allowing one to use more of his insights and creations. (Here I am adding some characteristics from other Li Shu styles in this video.)

When (2) and (3) are combined, one is ready to create his personal styles.
