108 Wu style Traditional Form

The 108 Traditional (or Standard, or Segmental) Form is the treasure chest of the style, as Master  Wu Kwong Yu says, as within it lie all the principles, the techniques and the secrets of Tai Chi Chuan.

In the beginning the student learns the “segmental” version of the Forms, with emphasis on the details and the components of each posture. Gradually, the movement becomes more smooth, round and fluid. Through the “segmental” learning, the student learns to position and align his body properly and understands the exact purpose and mechanics of each movement.

When the student learns well the Traditional Form, he begins to practice the Form with fluidity and more smooth transitions among the movements. In the future, when the student will start to practice the Round Form, he learns that fluidity and smoothness are based on the strong bases he already built through the practice in the Traditional Form, and avoids imprecise movements and errors that are common when students learn right away the Round Form, with no previous practice in the Traditional.
