Topic outline

The Yang-style Taijiquan (楊氏太極拳, Yángshì tàijíquán) Traditional Form consists of 113 movements. This sequence is the foundation to all of your Taijiquan practice. Beginners focus on stances, breathing, relaxation, mind, and energetic awareness. More advanced practitioners explore martial applications, direction of Qi, and Taijiquan theory. After you complete learning the Taijiquan solo sequence, you should practice it very slowly, focusing on how to lead your Qi beyond the surface of the skin and deep into the bone marrow.
