One thought on “Traditional Yang Family T’ai Chi’ Chuan 108 Movement Long Form

  1. For new students: If you wish to start learning this form, it takes place on Sat. after the general foundations class which is a Free class. (10:30 class) I recommend you learn basics first, but I’ll not refuse you if you wish to start early. Daily practice is mandatory or you just won’t get it… that’s why I wait for students to get into their own practice routine, at least a half hour a day, and then learn form ~because it’s lots of fun.

    (no body is refused because of lack of money. I certainly couldn’t pay all the time when I lived in SF. but my teacher never told me to stop coming because I was short of $$$. I took Qigong for medical instructions and form, and Taiji 3 times a week, because that’s what I was told. I paid $15 per class for many teachers or a monthly fee for unlimited classes. I can make the same arrangements for you if it is desirable.)
