Yang Tai Chi - Group Class
Heaven Form (Part 1)

 This is the traditional small frame form created by Yang Lu Chan and taught to family members and private students. It was personally transmitted to me through a direct line of five teachers.  Part 1 of the “Heaven” form includes the first 8 continuous forms of the original 120-form set.

 

We will start each class with six basic Neigong movements that build the foundation for practicing traditional Yang Tai Chi forms. This will then be followed by instruction, drilling, and practice of the traditional small frame Tai Chi form.

Private Instruction - Traditional Yang Family Forms

Secret Yang

The “Secret” Yang form is part of the Yang Tse Michuan Tai Chi Chuan system.The term “Secret” refers to the form’s importance as a family treasure. It was originally only taught to family members and private students. The Long form has 3 sections (Heaven, Earth and Man) and 108 movements and is considered a “Small Frame” form. The stances generally stay within shoulder’s width and tend to have the majority of the weight on the rear leg. The techniques are designed for close range application.
The Lao Yang form is the applications set of the Yang Tse Michuan Tai Chi Chuan. It is also known as the “Usage” or “Yi” form and was taught by the Yang family to only a small number of private students and family members.

Lao Yang’s movements and techniques are a distillation of the 3 part Michuan Long Form and its purpose was to develop the fighting skills of the Yang Michuan system. It has 6 sections, 72 forms and over 200 movements.
The Lao (“Old”) Chen form (also known as Guang Ping) is a Yang family transmission of a Chen family short fighting set. It was first taught and popularized in the United States by Master Kuo Lien Ying (1897-1984). It has 64 forms and includes a mix of small, mid and large frame movements.
