What are the key characteristics of Yang Style Taiji?
Founded by Yang Lu Chan, the Yang Form is typically done with slow and steady movements. While martial applications are embedded in every movement, there is no rush for any strike, nor tension generated by overtly winding up for the knock-out blow. Thus, movements appear subtle.
Slow and purposeful movements allow practitioners to relax and feel the flow of internal energy within their body, thereby experiencing an increased sense of wellbeing and health.
