William C. C. Chen's Tai Chi Long Form Videos
Traditional Yang-Style Tai Chi Chuan Long Form
Essential Sports and Fitness Video Channel
The Yang Long Form is a direct descendant of the soft style Tai Chi form
developed by Yang Chengfu (1883 - 1936), who trained
Professor Cheng Man-Ching, who in
turn trained Grandmaster William C. C. Chen. The Yang-style traces its roots to
Yang Luchan (1799 - 1872).
132 movements of Tai Chi Chuan
While the Tai Chi Long Form has a few moves that are not in the Short Form, the main difference is the repetition
of important moves in different contexts. Chen Man Ching created the short form based
on his modified version of this original long form. William Chen has made adjustments to both forms
and has mostly emphasized the short form (which takes about 8 minutes to do), with
occasional advanced classes in the long form (which takes about 20 minutes.).
This video gives the Chinese name for each move, followed by its English equivalent.
