Video Learn Tai Chi Yang Style Long Form


By now almost everyone has heard about Tai Chi, slow motion movements that looks like a dance practiced by healthy but old Asians at a city park.  There are benefits, no doubt; thousands of years of evidence prove it.

No one should be denied the opportunities of learning it.  Though going to a certified instructor is the preferred method, other ways are available.  This video or series of videos I produced and published in this blog could be that opportunity.

Yang Style Long Form Tai Chi has about 88 sequential movements and when done correctly takes about 20 minutes. Because of its length, aside from making your body move in ways you're not used to moving, the biggest challenge is retaining or remembering. When I learned it many years ago, I mimicked my instructor’s movements for about three years till it finally set in. Through the wonders of technology and the Internet, I was able to produce this video showing the form in its entirety with step by step instructions.

  1. The original forms of Tai Chi Chuan, irregardless of which styles, require a lot of effort, time, and dedication to learn and master. Simplifying is a necessity. In fact, I started learning the simplified version of Yang style 24 forms. This requires a lot of effort and time from my side to achieve reasonable level of mastery.tai chi video

  2. It is best to learn tai chi at your own pace and not to hurry the process. Use all methods to help remember and learn, but spend more efforts in feeling the movements be part of you. Mastery takes years but the benefit of development and improvement and personal satisfaction is immediate. I applaud your journey and dedication. Keep the chi flowing.
