5 Section Taijiquan
The Five Section Taijiquan is a modern routine created by Master Sam Masich. Having trained and taught for more than thirty years, he has been included as one of the 100 Extraordinary Chinese Martial Arts Practitioners in the world today by the International Wushu Sanshou Dao Association and is an awarded eighth degree master.
It is part of a comprehensive curriculum which includes:
- The basic five section tai chi solo form
- Five Section two person tai chi
- Five Section tai chi sword
- Five Section two person tai chi sword
- Five Section Chen style
- intermediate to advanced practices with sensing hands (Jue Shou) and energy work (Qigong).
Forms and exercises from '5 section taijiquan' (wuduan taijiquan in Chinese) have been adopted by Tai Chi schools around the world. The program has been designed to meet the needs of contemporary recreational taiji groups and to prepare committed students for traditional taijiquan training.
About Yang Style
A Tai Chi form can be either large, medium or small "frame", which dictates the amount of space required to perform it as well as the actual physical extensions involved. It can also be "short" or "long", which simply describes the number of individual movements the form contains. Yang-style forms are traditionally medium to large frame and develop very high quality martial skills and chi gung (internal subtle energy work).
