About The Characteristics In The Structure Of Sun Style Tai Chi Chuan:
The competition routine of Sun style Tai Chi Chuan was created based on the traditional Sun style.The whole routine has 6 segments. Although there are altogether 73 movements, which seem to be a lot, they are all arranged in an orderly sequence with the coordination of advancing and retreating of the footwork. Actually it is not difficult to remember the movements because every turning or change in each posture is usually connected with the movements of the opening and closing hands.
In order to meet the competition requirements, the arrangement of the movements and the structure of the routine have been improved with the additional movements like "Tui Bu Shan Zhang"(back step and wave palms). The whole routine can be divided into 6 segments:
Segment 1 stresses on the movements such as "Lan Zha Yi"(tuck in robes), "Lou Xi Ao Bu"(brush knee and twist step), "Jin Bu Ban Lan Chui"(advance, parry and punch) and "Kai He Shou"(opening and closing hands) to practice the basic techniques of hands and the advancing.
Segment 2 focuses on "Yun Shou"'(wave hands like clouds) and "Dao Juan Gong"(step back and whirl arms) which require high demands in "Fen Jiao"(toes kick) .
Segment 3 includes "Fan Shen Er Qi Jiao"(turn over body and double jump kick) and "Pi Shen Fu Hu"(turn body and straddle the tiger) with the correspondence of the "advance, parry and punch".
Segment 4 focuses on "Ye Ma Fen Zong"(parting the wild horse mane) and "Huo Bu Lan Zha Yi"(active tuck in robes) which reflect the various changer in the movements.
Segment 5 focuses on "Jin Ji Du Li"(golden rooster stands on one leg) and "deflect through the back" to show one's ability of balance and the steadiness on a single leg.
Segment 6 emphasizes "Yu Nu Chuan Suo"(jade girl working with shuttles), "Xia Shi"(push down) and "Zhuan Shen Bai Lian"(turn body and lotus kick) which reflect the variety of changes in the movements and reach the climax of the routine.
