Advanced Short Form encorporates all techniques, learnt in the Long Form, and compresses them into a single Short Form.
The roundness of Tai Chi forms is brought in now that the student has mastered the form in square mode/style.
Not only is the form done very rounded and circular, but it’s now done at different speeds throughout; speeding up and slowing down, depending on the technique.
