Yang Style Taijiquan

A Taijiquan master can use just this pattern, Green Dragon Shoots Pearl, to counter any attacks!



Yang Style Taijiquan is the most popular style of Taijiquan practiced today. It is normally practiced slowly and gracefully. But most practitioners do not realize that this is only the first part of Taijiquan practice.

The main reasons for its initial slow and graceful performance are to learn the forms correctly and to generate an energy flow which can be converted to internal force. Chi flow is an important aspect of Taijiquan, without which it degrades into a dance, and may not be effective even to maintain health.

Later Taijiquan should be performed fast and forcefully, otherwise it would not be effective for combat. At the highest level, Yang Style Taijiquan can be employed for spiritual cultivation.

In the original 108-Pattern Yang Style Taijiquan Set, many patterns are performed only on one side and are repeated a few times. Unlike in Shaolin Kungfu where there is a much wider repertoire of techniques and therefore it is not disadvantageous for certain patterns to be practiced only on one side as there are other patterns to cover the other side, the relative smaller range of techniques in Taijiquan does not allow this luxury. Hence, practicing main Taijiquan only on one side would limit its combat efficiency.

To overcome this setback, Grandmaster Wong has made some modifications. In our Wahnam Version of the 108-Pattern Set, the main techniques are practiced both sides. Grandmaster Wong also has added a few patterns from the fundamental Taijiquan Thirteen Techniques.

Although this is a 108-pattern set, 138 patterns are shown here because some patterns are repeated and transitional patterns are included.
