Greetings!
   As promised, here's the complete set for Forms 2 (and 3) for the Yang Style
Tai Chi moves. The names of the moves are not complete and I am guessing on
most. I'd say around 80% is probably correct. If you know of corrections,
please send them to me. I'll probably post the whole set with all the
names corrected later (in the year, may be). Form 3 is the mirror image of
2, so I don't feel like doing it separately for now. Just reverse left &
right for 3. Form 4 and 5 should appear soon! Again, 5 is the mirror image
of 4, so I'll only do one for now.

    Yes, it would be cool to have these guys animated, but I would hold my
breath, unless you got some time on your hands! (And by all means, send
me a copy if you do!) I am contemplating animating them. May be by end
of the year.

    FYI, the Yang style I am learning is suppose to have 8 forms, but I've
learn only up to 5 for now. Enjoy! 8-)
