Yang style 8 form: Ward off, roll back, press, push, single whip, lift hands, white crane spreads wings, brush knee. The 8 form is an old yang form from Yongnian country Guang Fu town where the Yang family resided. In his youth, Fu Zhongwen, under the training of Yang Zhoupeng (Yang Banhou’s son) learned this form that repeats 8 times, so students had a easy 20 minute form as a warm-up to Tui shou (Push hands) the auxiliary two person mid-range grappling drill.
