About Yuri
What is Taijiquan?

The Fan form is a great form for beginners because the movements are gentle and quite easy to learn.

This Fan form (not traditionally a Chen style weapon) was created by Master Eva Koskuba of the Chinese Internal Arts Association (CIAA) and Grandmaster Chen Xiao Wang (Standard Bearer of Chen style Taijiquan) gave it his blessing.

This first clip gives an explanation of how to hold the fan.
