Fujian White Crane – Suang Yang Tai Chi
Generally known as Tai Chi, the style taught in class is based on an extended pattern called “Bai He Rou Ruan Quan”, which is translated as “White Crane Frost and Sun Fist”.
It is a soft, internal style, with the emphasis in class being on developing a stable balanced stance, flexible torso and elegant precise hand movements. Do not be fooled into an assumption of passivity – this also is a fighting style (otherwise it would not be a martial art). Whilst it pre-disposes towards self-defence, the student must take the same responsibility for their skill as those who learn the hard style. Skilled practitioners can inflict severe injuries and must train to control their responses. In China there are soft style fighting competitions and we use class to train how to use and control soft style techniques in sparring situations.
