  • They are all listed at at 108-form Wu family tai chi chuan - Wikipedia Oct 16, 2022 at 14:59
  • Are you sure it’s cantones ? Or Chines ? Oct 16, 2022 at 15:52
  • @DavidPostill From the wording of the entry I get the impression that these are the names in Mandarin, not Cantonese while the question explicitly asks for a name in Cantonese if there is one. I cannot speak to the appropriateness of that assessment though. Oct 16, 2022 at 16:45
  • Are you looking for a Romanisation or for the traditional Chinese symbols? If I recall correctly mandarin is usually written in simplified Chinese while Cantonese is usually written in traditional Chinese. That said any symbol in traditional Chinese will have both a Mandarin and Cantonese reading.

The 108 forms of the Wu family style of T'ai chi ch'uan are listed at 108-form Wu family tai chi chuan - Wikipedia.

For each unique form name there is a literal translation, the Hong Kong school's translation and then the Shanghai school's translation in italics where they differ, followed by the original Chinese characters.

Example:

  1. Begin T'ai Chi Form - The Beginning of T'ai Chi - The Preparation Form 太極起式
