Compiled by the Chinese Wushu Association
There is a Chinese saying: “Half of all Chinese sports are Wushu (martial arts) and half of Wushu is Taiji.” These 48 Forms of Taiji Quan have all the special features of the traditional schools of Taiji Quan – the spirit of relaxation, softness, smoothness, circulatory, and continuity. Their practice calls for a quiet mind, a relaxed body, consciousness-guided movements, and a combination of hardness and softness. These forms are mainly based on Yang Style Taiji Quan, but also draw upon strong points and techniques of other styles. The exercises are smooth, circular, balanced, complete, lively, and simple.
