HAO SHAORU'S NEW FRAME FORM

Hao ShaoruProbably the most widely known form of all the Wu Family (Hao Style) Taijiquan routines, is 'Hao Shaoru's New Frame Form" (Hao Shi Xinjia Taijiquan). The reason for this, is directly due to the popularity of the his book, entitled "Wu-Style Taijiquan".

Hao Shaoru's book proved so popular, that it was published in two editions. The first edition was published in 1963, with illustrations provided by the talented Zhou Yuanlong. During early 1980s, this edition was edited, revised and expanded. Then shortly before, Hao Sharo's death, his students collated all their teacher's works, and published the second edition of the book in 1992.

Due to its popularity of this form, we have decided to feature this form in our Class Room. For your information we have included the names of this forms postures below. The posture names have been translated into English, and their pinyin names have also included for those of you who wish to explore the names further in a Chinese dictionary. At the bottom of the page, you will find links to scans of the form. We hope you appreciate the effort we have taken to present this form, for you enjoyment
