In Fall 2014, I plan to teach the Mixed Style 42 Form at FCS. The Mixed Style 42 Form is basically Yang Style, but has a mixture of Chen, Sun, and Wu Styles. It is often the next form set to learn after learning the Simplified Yang Style 24 Form.  However, no previous knowledge of the Simplified Yang Style 24 Form is necessary to enroll in this course.

As I mentioned in previous classes, there is a long Taiwan TV series “Taiji Master” (太极宗师).  It contains 16 episodes, with each one about 45 minutes.  It is about the story of the founder of the Yang Style, Yang Lu-Chan (楊露禅 1799-1872).  This program is partially true, and partially fiction.  Here is the link for the 1st episode:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4MMqqps2hg8.  At the end of this episode, you should be able to find the link to the next episode, and so on.
