Tan Tui translates to "spring legs". YMAA practices the 12 roads system. Tan tui are an important part of our Shaolin program. They train movement fundamentals, stance work, fighting technique and endurance & conditioning. Below is an article about the history of tan tui and a video of our great grand-master Han, Ching Tan performing the 10 roads system sometime around 1960.
