True Taiji

Taiji is an ancient Chinese Art developing the body, mind and spirit. 

There is only one true Taiji, one set of principles. Human deviation gave rise to family styles (Yang, Wu, Chen etc) which each has strengths and weaknesses. Their strengths are where they follow the principles and their weaknesses are where they deviate from the principles.

We emphasise the waist movement (twisting wave) of the Chen Style, the advancing (issuing transverse wave) power of the Yang Style, the borrowing of our partner's force (neutralising vertical pressure wave) of the Wu style. We follow my teacher's advice: "Go back to the first principles before the styles diverged."
