Wu Ji Style Tai Chi
There are are many forms of Tai Chi practiced in China and throughout the world. At Silk Wind we practice the Wu Ji Style taught to me by my teacher, Master William Ting. While it is practiced throughout China, and specifically Shanghai, it is not very well known in the United States. The Wu Ji Style is noted for its use of spiraling energy, coiling & unwinding energy patterns. At higher levels the Tai Chi form is also practiced with a 'quick step' footwork, resulting in Bagua Tai Chi.
