comment What are the functional differences between the five main T'ai Chi styles?
It certainly does come down to the particular teacher. There's a Chen style teacher in one of the cities I lived in once who was from China. I learned that he was actually a businessman in China and had only a month or two of training in Chen style and nothing else. He learned mostly through video tape. But people flocked to him, because 1) he's Chinese, and 2) it's Chen style. In the same town are many much better Yang, Wu, and Sun style teachers who happen to be Caucasian. In other words, don't fall for hype and appearances. Ask around about who knows what.

Oh, and Hao style is usually called "Wu (Hao)" Style, to differentiate it from the more popular Wu style.

comment What is the oldest martial art?
Now, if you're just talking about martial arts that may no longer exist and don't have any lineage to look at, history mentions many of them. The gladiators of ancient Greece, for example. There are statues and pictures showing gladiators in various martial arts poses that we would recognize today. Military arts, also, go back thousands of years BC. But again, kind of hard drawing a line from them to current day martial arts.

Do you mean a martial art that is practiced today just like it was practiced when it was invented? Martial arts do change greatly over time. I guess what you really want to know is if there's a lineage that can be traced back in an unbroken line, with no gaps in its history. So, person A taught person B, and person B taught person C, and so on. And with evidence confirming each person's authenticity. That's a tall order. Many claim multi-hundred-year old lineage lines, but they often don't show the evidence they claim to have.
