2. The 5 Section Taijiquan Program
Wuduan Taijiquan 五段太極拳
Forms and practices from 5 Section Taijiquan Program have been adopted by taijiquan schools around
the world. This modular program has been designed to meet the needs of contemporary recreational
taijiquan groups and to prepare committed students for traditional full-curriculum taijiquan training.
Practitioners trained with 5 Section Taijiquan forms, connection work and principles training are well
prepared for the more rigorous intensity of traditional taijiquan programs which are focused more intensely
on martial-arts training and self-cultivation. Mastering the basics of taijiquan via the Wuduan Taijiquan
Program can accelerate overall taijiquan development by many years. The Masich Internal Arts Method
employs the 5 Section Taijiquan Program as preparation for traditional Yang-style Taijiquan and other
internal martial arts.
