Sun Style Taijiquan was created by Sun Lu Tang in the early 20th century. It was the latest of the five popular styles of Taijiquan, namely Chen, Yang the two Wu styles, and Sun. "Sun" here is pronounced like the English "Soon".

Sun Lu Tang learned Taijiquan in his later years from Hao Wei Zhan, the third generation master of Wu Yu Xiang Style Taijiquan, sometimes called the Hao Style. Before this, Sun Lu Tang was expert in Baguazhang and Xingyiquan. Hence, Sun Style Taijiquan is special in that it also contains the essence of Baguazhang and Xingyiquan.

The set shown in the video is the one created by Sun Lu Tang himself, but Grandmaster Wong has modified some patterns to bring out the best of Baguazhang and Xingyiquan, as he believes that many past masters hid secrets in their favorite sets.
