Yang Family Tai Chi Kung

Created by master Yang Jun. Performed by Song Bin (Yang Zhenduo’s disciple).
The 2014 International Tai Chi Chuan Symposium on Health, Education and Cultural Exchange, held in Lousiville, KY featured Tai Chi Training Method workshops with each of the Grandmasters of the main styles of Tai Chi Chuan. For the Symposium, each Grandmaster designed a 10-movement sequence unique to their style which teaches the essentials of their particular style. This the Yang Family Tai-Chi Kung. Since it is easy to learn a sequence of only ten postures, the main purpose of this training method is to make it easy to learn by beginners of the Yang Family Tai Chi Chuan or by practitioners of any style.

List of postures

  1. Opening and Single Whip
  2. Fist under elbow
  3. Left and Right Repulse the Monkey
