A highly focused and disciplined performance of the 24 Step hand form (Beijing) by Master Tary Yip of the Deiyin Institute in the UK. Not the best video quality and clearly in a school hall or similar with a stage in the background, but the quality of the form more than makes up the deficiencies in the background.

As they say on the video description – 24 Step Tai Chi, structured by Grand master Li Tian Ji and promoted by Professor Li Deyin, this is the most widely practised Yang style routine in the world with hundreds of millions of people practising daily. Master Tary, indoor disciple of Professor Li Deyin, is one of the highest authority in Europe on this routine.
