Taiji 37 Postures Martial Applications
Discover the Martial Art of Taijiquan
Taijiquan (Tai Chi Chuan) is an ancient internal Chinese martial art which has gained widespread popularity for its many health benefits. Today, most people practice taiji slowly to develop their balance, strength, and vitality, and the martial applications of the art are often ignored. Taijiquan, or 'Grand Ultimate Fist', is a highly effective form of combat specializing in short and middle-range fighting.
This program offers practical martial applications for each of the 37-postures of traditional Taiji, based on the forms passed down by Yang, Ban-Hou. Once the viewer has a basic understanding of these universal principles, you may use them to devise further applications for every movement no matter which style of Taiji you practice.
- Learn the Basic Concepts of Taiji and Taijiquan.
- Understand the purpose of every Taiji movement.
- Over 50 effective applications for any Taijiquan style.

Dr. Yang's ability is of the same high caliber as his written treatises.Grandmaster Liang, Tung-Tsai
Dr. Yang surely follows in the footsteps of the Yang style founder Yang Lu-Chan, who also first studied the Shaolin hard styles and later studied and mastered the soft style of Taijiquan. Dr. Yang stimulates this tradition, which will surely bear the fruit of high achievement within the martial arts.Mucho Gusto, Gregory W. Gustafson (Amazon reviewer) April, 2010
This video is a great display of principles behind the form and applications from Dr. Yang's personal flavor of tai chi, which will deepen your understanding of structure and mind that goes into your own style. I like this kind of teaching because it gives you the principles to adapt and research and find your own style. I enjoyed the kungfu in this video greatly and would recommend it to anyone seeking to expand their own.
