We present you a form of Taiji with Fan (TAIJI SHAN) of Yang Style according to Master Maître Wang Yen Nien. This film was produced in order you can learn this form or improve your knowledge of it. The Tao Lu or combination is clearly broken down in order to enhance the understanding.
Exercises and handling techniques, on the spot and while moving, martial applications demonstrated with a partner, which widens the practicing and the comprehension of movements and the game dimension.
You will also discover in this film a fight/game as well as an excerpt of a form combining Yang and Chen styles.
The Art of the Fan blends anchorage, strength, and suppleness of the tiger that jumps and goes into the 8 directions and the lightness of the bird that flies and is supported by the wind to free its flowing motion, looping and precise.
The opening and closing of the Fan create an energetic circulation that helps to the balance of the Qi.
