Yang Taiji form 8 step - on an uneven rock!

Please note: I make a mistake in this form: in the lunge (“gong bu”), my knee goes over my toes. PLEASE DO NOT EVER DO THIS. I was even praised by Master Kuttel for doing this step correctly and NOT making this frequent mistake, so it was an interesting lesson for me to look at the video. I think I was trying to overcompensate for something … be it stress of recording myself or the un-evenness of the rock!

Yun Shou - Moving Hands like Clouds, or Cloud Hands

Many of you have asked for a break-down of this step, so here it is. I hope it is helpful! The first video is longer and goes into detail very much step by step. The second one should help you with form 8 Step.
