Yang (Dong/Tung) Style Fast Form 杨(董)氏快拳

Terry asked about the Yang style fast form that I practise. Yes, it is also known as Dong/Tung style fast form, since it was created by Dong Yingjie based on Yang style taijiquan.

This is Master Lin Bo Yan (my teacher's teacher) practising the fast form. You can find more about him here (where I took the video).

Hi Teck,

have you ever compared this fast form with the one that 马岳梁 Ma Yue Liang of 吳 Wu style (Shanghai) is famous for doing? The lineage (between Ma & Dong) is not that far apart afterall.

I'd be interested to hear your opinion on each forms approach to using faster movements and any comment on noticably similar or different movements.

This is of course only if you have the time and would like to follow up on the matter.

Kindest regards,

P.S. Youtube clip of Ma doing his Kuai Jia here;
