Because of its official support, the Tai Chi Yang 24 is the most well known set of Tai Chi Form in the world.

  • flowing circulation,

The first set of Tai Chi that I learned from Sifu Chin was the Yang 108. We were required to go through slowly, taking us 45 - 60 minutes to do one set.

Later, in Texas, I practiced they Yang 24 and others health styles, within a Chinese Community in Houston, as I developed a friendship with Lian Ping Zhang 

The Yang 24 provides a gentler, milder opportunity to learn health style Tai Chi and Chi Kung.
