The Old Yang Style group met on Saturday to train with Master Hine. As usual it was an excellent session with all of the members enthusiastic and eager to sharpen their skills.
Advanced Tai Chi
The Old Style is much less common than other styles of Yang Tai Chi. It is very sophisticated, with complex hand and body movements making it easier for people with some experience of Tai Chi already. In the later stages there are several fast movements not found in most Yang Tai Chi today. There are also flying kicks and lower sweeping stances making this style more suitable for people with experience who have already developed the flexibility and strength from previous Tai Chi experience.
