Wu's/Hao's Form

Mark's note: The entire content has been lifted from James Marshall's webpages, who in turn has copied his lists from other sources. These sources are quoted in italics first, and then his notes are included as they may be of interest.

Copied from The Dao of Taijiquan, Way to Rejuvenation by Jou, Tsung Hwa, published by Tai Chi Foundation.

Note that this is sometimes called the Hao form because Haoweizhen was a popular master of the Wu style and had many students. This is not the same Wu as the Wu style of Wujianquan; that style is basically a modification of the Yang style.
