Yes, that is he. It looks like he started in Baji, but the lion's share of his training has been Taiji. One of his teachers trained with Chen FaKe.

I'm glad I dug up the study and clip again, because I'd forgotten the details. One other thing that's interesting is his ability to voluntarily control his peripheral vascular system -- "on command," he raised the skin temperature of his hands by 2 degrees F, then lowered the temperature by 6 degrees F. All this while surrounded by scientists and connected to data-recording equipment.
