Shaolin Tai Chi Rou Quan Performance by Students at the Chinatown Festival 2019
Our students perform an ancient traditional Shaolin taolu form called Rou Quan, or Gentle Fist.
It's part of our Shaolin Tai Chi program (Shaolin Gentle Fist style) and a much more advanced form. It takes easily a year to learn the whole form, and that's just to get it to a basic level!
Normally you learn this form after learn a couple of easier and shorter forms. This way you build up your foundation and techniques in a way that makes it easier to learn more and more advanced ideas later.
We performed this on the main stage on Spadina Avenue at the Chinatown Festival of 2019.
