In some versions of Yang Family Taijiquan’s 3rd Set or section, following “punch down” there is a “step forward and wardoff” followed by “step forward and rollback” in which the legs are NOT static as with earlier repetitions. These “steppings” are present in both Yang Cheng Fu’s method and also older versions such as the method of Yang Jianhou. The short video shows basic applications for “step forward to double hand Peng” (wardoff) and “step forward and rollback.” Note: these stepping techniques have been omitted in the modified versions of Yang style including Cheng Man Ching’s method as well as others. In addition, the video also shows an application for a hidden strike in the transition between double-hand Peng and Liu.
