WEN LI TAI CHI QIGONG SCHOOL

42 Competition Tai Chi Hands Form

This form was developed in 1989 and is based on the Yang style, but also includes moves and components from the other major styles (Chen, Wu, Sun) as well as techniques from Push Hands practice. The first section shows technique and style by opening with Grasp the Sparrow's Tail while again gently stretching the limbs as in the 24 posture form, the second opens with the Sun style's classic Opening and Closing posture and ends with the first climax using the Chen style's Cover with Hand and Punch with Fist and Parting Wild Horse's Mane, the third starts with easier moves immediately following the first climax then more difficult movements, the fourth contains the second climax with moves like Body Thrust with Half Horse Stance, Turn Body with Full Roll Back and Hold and Punch in Crossed Squatting Stance using some easier moves to wind down and finish.
