Fast Form

Wu style T’ai Chi Ch’üan Fast Form

The fast form is probably the most authentic historical form practiced today. All other Wu forms are said to originate from the fast form. The long form which is taught today is taken directly from the fast form; the names of the moves and their order are the same in both. Master Wu Chian-chuan omitted some of the repetitions, jumping and stamping in order to create the smooth flowing slow forms we see today.

A description of the movements in section one can be found by clicking on the Chinese name (remaining sections by request : email me). A key describing how these descriptions should be read can be found here.
