Yang Style 108 Workshop

Yang Style 108 Workshop

If you are serious in your pursuit of Tai Chi (taijiquan) knowledge, then sooner or later you will have to begin your study of the traditional forms, which contain all the details passed on through the Tai Chi family lineages.

2011 02 23 malaysia 38

It is generally acknowledged that modern Yang style Tai Chi comes from Yang Cheng Fu, the grandson of Yang Lu Chan (1799-1872), who founded the style. The lineage continues to this day through Grandmaster Yang Jun, Cheng Fu's grandson. Our study of the 108 hand form comes from our teacher Sam Masich, founder of MIAM (the Masich Internal Arts Method). Master Masich is a formal disciple of Grandmasters Liang Shou-Yu and Dr. Yang Jwing-Ming, with other important early influences including Jou Tsung Hwa and Yang Zhenduo (Yang Cheng Fu's son).

PLEASE NOTE: We are currently operating under strict COVID guidelines, which means numbers are limited to 10, you must complete a track-and-trace form and please do not register if you are displaying any symptoms or are in a very vulnerable category. We also require advance payment via PayPal for all our venue-based classes because places are very limited, and unfortunately we currently cannot offer refunds if you cancel.
