Yang Taiji 24 – Part The Wild Horse’s Mane – Posture 2
Posture 2 of the Yang Taiji 24 form. This picks up where The Opening of Taiji left off. This Taijiquan posture is done to a count of five so you can “join the dots” as you’re learning it. Each movement has a rhythm, and the count expresses the rhythm to make it easier to learn and remember.
It really helps to break down any movement in Taijiquan that can be broken down into chunks that you can do to a count. That way rather than having to remember the whole Taijiquan movement, all you need to do is just remember the “dots” as it were and it makes the form a lot easier to learn.
