Form Lists
a comprehensive list of Forms for the Yang, Sun, Lee, Wu, Peking & other styles

Yang Forms: | Long Yang | Long Yang variation 1 | Long Yang variation 2 | Long Yang as 88 moves |
  | Short Yang | Yang Competition |

Long Yang Form

This is the form as we practise it.The moves are numbered for easier locating, but are otherwise arbitrary. For example, the traditional Yang Long Form is 108 moves, we describe it in our DVDs as 128, and here it is 139! (see also the 88-move list). It's all the same, it simply depends upon how you split it up.
