Taijiquan participants to the Advanced Combined Shaolin Taijiquan Course in Malaysia need to be familiarize with the following 12 combat sequences in Wahnam Taijiquan.

These revised sequences follow closely the earlier twelve sequences demonstrated by Sifu Javier Galve and Sifu Jeffrey Segal here . But unlike the earlier sequences where practitioners start the sequences with their forearms in contact at the “peng” position, in the revised sequences participants space themselves apart at the start. There is also more variety in footwork while initiating or responding to attacks.
