Half-Day workshop on Mrs Bao’s 10 Tai Chi Forms

SATURDAY 4 JULY 2020

Mrs Bao is the founder of ‘Bao’s Lung Fei Tai Chi’ (BLFTC). In 1992 Mrs Bao created her 10 tai chi form sequence for her students; seven year later in 1999, China created a 10 tai chi forms sequence too. Mrs Bao realised the need in the West for a shorter set of forms for beginners, as up until then the shortest form was the famous 24 tai chi forms, created in 1956 by Master Li Tianji’, nicknamed ‘Lungfei’ from whom our tai chi club gets its name. Mrs Bao learnt tai chi from Master Li Tianji in China.
