Yang Style Tai Ji Quan Xiao Jia Zi passed down in Hang Zhou
    Xiao Jia Zi (small style) of Yang's Tai Ji Quan is the Quan Jia (movements) often exercised by my deceased ancestors, Yang Banhou and Yang Jianhou. That has got great characteristics in attacking the rival heavily and fiercely in a flash hurting him hard once the hitting is reaching him even injured. There are totally sixty-four movements in this Quan Jia. It gets Kai He (opening and closing) so light and agile with the Bu Fa (stepping) sturdy, swift, flexible and gentle. "Quans (circles)" are concealed inside the acting movements seeming to be nothing but resembling there is something. Get spreading first and then keeping tense, instantaneously walking and seizing. The whole Quan Jia in one manifests the syncretism of Jing(vigor), Qi(interior strength and breathing) and Shen(spirit) with every movement absolutely practical.
    In the years of 90's of last century, I had a fortune to know Mr. Xie Zhaonan, one of the directors of Wushan Tai Ji Quan academy in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province. He had been teaching me the traditional Yang Style Eighty-Five-Movements Tai Ji Quan (Da Jia Zi, meaning big movements) first. Mr. Xie said it was a great pity that the traditional Xiao Jia (small movements) of deceased ancestor Yang Banhou's had been lost, which was absolutely unadulterated traditional Tai Ji Kung-fu. Afterwards Mr. Xie also passed the Xiao Jia (small movements) down to me, and now I would like to share some information about this style of boxing with our Kung-fu lovers.
