Started out with qigong warm-up and stretching, then did the Tai Gong series, followed by Eight Pieces of Brocade qigong and standing meditation.

Then I did the Yang style 108 form in it's entirety (the breaking it up and working on the individual sections helped tremendously for this as I was able to go on "auto pilot" and not think-too much!).

Then I did the Chen style long form up to the point I stopped at with Shifu.

I finished with the sword form work and standing meditation.

On to the strength training....
