TRADITIONAL YANG STYLE TAI CHI CHUAN

Brief Historical Background

Yang Luchan (1799 - 1872) was the founder of Yang Style Tai Chi Chuan. The following generations of the Yang family continued to research and develop the “frame” and the Long Form developed by Yang Chengfu (3rd generation) became the representative standard form. Master Yang Chengfu and his disciples taught the Form widely and helped popularise Tai Chi Chuan throughout China.

However, in the world today, there are many versions of the Long Form. Different masters have continued to modify the form in accordance with their own insights and interpretations of the movements. One can say there are almost as many versions as there are masters and this often leads to confusion for the novice student.

Study Course

Our study of Traditional Yang Style Tai Chi Chuan is directly from the source. We return to the Yang family tai chi roots and in particular the lineage of Yang Chengfu - Yang Zhenduo - Yang Jun. Grand Master Yang Zhenduo (4th generation), together with his grandson Master Yang Jun (6th generation), had committed themselves to preserving Yang Chengfu’s legacy by continuing to teach his Traditional Yang Style Tai Chi Chuan both in China and internationally. The study course follows the curriculum of the International Yang Family Tai Chi Chuan Association..

The Forms

The 103 Movement Hand Form, the 49 Movement Demonstration/Competition Form, the 22 Movement Essential Form, the 13 Sabre Form and the 67 Movement Sword Form.
