Yang Tai Ji 36 Postures
There are many versions of Yang Tai Chi forms. However, most of them are with expansive moves. There are also large and deep postures from Wu Shu routines. They may not be good for knees. I therefore started to make the moves smaller and tighter when I first learned them in 1980s. We may still gain health benefits from practicing these smaller moves. I preserved the original names for each posture. There are detailed descriptions about how to do the moves correctly. Each posture is also illustrated with several images including transitional moves. I have exchanged ideas and notes extensively with students from Yang Cheng Fu lineage. The moves in this book are much closer to original Yang Cheng Fu routines.
