Taijiquan on the Blue Mountain Part 41 — Life (Almost)
8th to 12th March 2009
OLD EAGLE CATCHES SNAKE IN REMEMBRANCE OF ZHANG SAN FENG
Patterns are meaningfully linked together to form sequences, and sequences are meaningfully linked together to form sets. The four Abridged Taijiquan Combat Sequences are linked here to form the set "Old Eagle Catches Snake". This set was formerly named "Taijiquan Four-Sequence Four-Attack Set". During the regional Taijiquan course on the Blue Mountain from 8th to 12th March 2009, Sifu Rama Roberto proposed a more poetic name, "Old Eagle Catches Snake", in remembrance of the historic event that inspired the Patriarch Zhang San Feng to evolve Taijiquan from Shaolin Kungfu.
