Tai Chi Chuan

Yang Long Form

The Tai Chi system used by the Wu Li Academy is the Yang Family's Long Form. Of the dozens of different systems of Tai Chi, the Chen, Yang and Wu systems are the most widely recognized.

The Yang Long Form is the most popular of all Tai Chi systems and the most widely taught outside China.


In the 1960s, the Beijing government made the first successful attempt to bring all the systems back together as one simplified form. In doing so, they nationalized the practice and created one form called Standardized Tai Chi, which contained the best techniques of all the major systems. That system is currently taught in all physical sports institutions in China.
