A closed door student of Grandmaster Tam Yiu Chuen,
Master Li is a 5th generation disciple of the Yang Family Taiji.
24 Step Taiji
The 24 Step Taiji form was adopted by the Chinese
Authority as the official form. It is mainly constructed from elements
of the Yang family system. A gathering of many contemporary masters of
different styles was set to the task of creating this single Taiji form
that was easy to learn. They eliminated much of the repetitive motion so
that the form was shorter but still had profound benefits to the
practitioners health and flexibility.
Not only is the 24 Step form useful in improving one's
health but it can be used for self defense as well. With the addition
of stationary/fixed step Push Hands the practitioner learns how to apply
the postures against a training partner. Awareness of where the
opponent's center of balance and where their connection to the ground is
allows the practitioner to redirect incoming attacks. The lessons
learned from the 24 Step Taiji form allow the practitioner to gain
advantage over opponents with minimal effort. Once proficient in
stationary/fixed step Push Hands, the practitioner proceeds to moving
Push Hands which also emphasizes using minimal physical effort. Using Taiji footwork,
this exercise advances one's self defense skills and ability to defend
Wudang Taiji Sword Form - 51 Movements
Master Li teaches the original Yang Family Taiji Sword
Form which was passed down from the Wudang Mountains. The Wudang Taiji
Sword Form contains 51 movements and is by far the most complete Taiji
Sword Form found. It is also an advanced level power tool for
Qi (chi) cultivation.
Yang Long Form - 81 Movements
Master Li teaches the original Yang Family Long Form which contains 81 movements
(Some schools count the movements of the same form differently, such as
88 movements and 105 movements). 81 movements imply infinity. In Chinese
traditions, nine times nine is eighty-one (9 X 9 = 81) and 81 indicates
the infinity. This form contains all thirteen major postures of Taiji.
