Taijiquan 37 Essential Forms
(Sanshiqi Danshi Lianfa 三十七單式練法)
with Javier Arnanz
In this class we begin study of traditional Yang-style Taijiquan principles, push-hands, and application through the the ‘37 Essential Forms of Taijiquan.’
In his 1931 book, 'Taijiquan Method and Application' Master Yang Chengfu (1883-1936) described thirty-seven core forms. After listing all the forms within the long form he states, "The full sequence is comprised entirely of thirty-seven distinct forms,” and contends that these are essential to an understanding of
Yang-style Taijiquan and it’s martial application.
Javier Arnanz is from Madrid, Spain and is an 'Indoor student' (tudi 徒弟) of Master Sam Masich and the Internal Arts Method. He trains and teaches the internal arts for health, meditation and martial application.
Due to COVID-19 concerns, this workshop will respect ‘social distancing’ and mask wearing if necessary and some course content may be modified. Although we will studying partner application concepts, the practices may be undertaken as solo exercises or with an implement depending on current legal safety guidelines.
