| Wu (Hao) Tai Chi
Chuan: Competition Routine
competition routine of Wu style Tai Ji Quan was created based on the
traditional Wu (Wu Yuxiang or called Wu Yuxiang or even Woo...) style.
It preserved the basic characteristics of the movements in the
traditional one, like never extending the hands beyond the toes, and
making each hand to handle the movements of its own side of the body.
The sequence of the movements is arranged according to the traditional
structure which reflects the traditional characteristics.
whole routine is created with the emphasis on the competitive
requirement, the specific difficult movement and the connections, like
“left slap foot”, “turn body and lotus kick”, and “jump step and strike
groin with fist”.
Wu style Tai
Ji Quan is different from Chen style or Yang style. Its main
characteristics are as the followings: The external movements and
postures are compact and simple; the force of the movements is adequate
and continuous; the momentum is delicate and centered with awareness;
the process of the movements is consistent and rhythmic with many
closings and openings; the speed of the movements is comfortably paced,
and your mind is beyond your movements.

(Hao) style, remind me some external styles of boxing such as Wing
Tsun, compact, short movements, in order to be able to chain them very
fast at will as I trained years before. Now as my interest is drifting
to Tai Chi, maybe because also of my age, the Wu Style seems to be a
very good compromise between hard and soft but in short distance
movement instead of the large ones of Yang style. In addition the hands
posture provides after a certain period of training, electricity
sensations such as in zhan zhuang of Yiquan.It is for me the proof that
my internal strength is increasing. Your ebook is a valuable material
to understand it and to pick up training."
