Due to coronavirus restrictions we will be hosting our first online AGM ever. All are welcome, however voting is restricted to CTF members.

Hosting will be provided by Zoom. To be invited please email Steven Holbert . You do not need to have a Zoom membership to participate, just click the link provided in Steven Holbert’s email invitation.

From 12:00 we will have demos and participation.

Sifu Malcolm MacQuarrie will be demonstrating his Taiji in a Box form for small spaces. This form consists of Grasp Bird’s Tail, rollback, press and push, turning 90 degrees in one direction, followed by 180 degrees in the other, until you come around to the starting point. Doing this to the right, immediately followed by left, really illuminates your technique.

Sifu Steve Higgins will demonstrate the Yang-style 13 Powers form. The Thirteen Powers Yang-style foundation form has two halves.  The first half consists of Grasp Bird’s Tail, which is comprised of bumping, rolling back, squeezing and pressing.  The second half consists of the oblique suite of 4 moves: elbowing, shouldering, snatching and wheeling.  Done to right and then to left the form demonstrates the 8 Gates of the Yang style.

Stay tuned for more.
