Chuan: Competition Routine
The competition routine of Yang style Tai Ji Quan was created based on
the traditional Yang style. By implementing 37 different movements from
the traditional one, it has kept the originality from the arrangement
to the movements
The competition routine of Yang style Tai Ji Quan not only created new
movements such as the “slapping feet”, but also increased the height
and difficulty of kicks. It reduced the number of repetitive movements
and rearranged the sequence with a new structure.
arrangement of movements in the competition routine of Yang style Tai
Ji Quan focuses on the connection of the movements, the layout of the
routine, the degree of difficulty and the rationality. The whole
routine can be divided into 4 segments.
The large routine of Yang
style Tai Ji Quan which is the most popular one is the original version
used to create the competition routine of Yang style. Its major
characteristics are as the following: The movements are extended and
stretched, upright and full, and vigorous and dignified; the connection
between the movements is natural and coherent; the force of the
movements is internal with tenderness and fierceness; the pace is
gentle, slow and continuous. When practicing, start with the relaxation
and coordinate the tenderness and fierceness.
