Chen Taiji Standardized 26 Form
Master Chen Youze
China National Coach,
3-time National Push-Hands Champion

Aknowledgement:
I am indebted to Sifu Tony Wong for arranging the weekend seminars with Lao Tse (Master Chen), and for providing us a list of the 26 steps, which made it possible to break the form into sections. I don't know that I divided the movements properly, and there are almost certainly movements to add, as well as details to be corrected, but this outline should provide a memory-assist to someone who has been exposed to the form.
