It uses 24 representative moves from the traditional Yang style.

This form enables beginners, old and young, to concentrate on, and appreciate, the essential principals of Tai Chi of effortless movement, relaxation and awareness of the mind and body as one. It is said to be the most popular tai chi form practiced today.
