Yellow Bee Sucks Pollens

Many Taiji practitioners today do not realize that Taijiquan is a martial art. But realizing it as a martial art is one thing, being able to practice it as a martial art is another.

This set, which is composed of eight Taijiquan combat sequences, helps to overcome this problem.
