Forms (‘Thau”) are an important part of our Tang Sou Dao training. All of our forms are unique to our style. They demonstrate the practical application of the art, and enable students to practice their combinations with accuracy, power and precision.

The forms become more complex as students progress further in Tang Sou Dao. Each form incorporates an additional kick which will be tested to achieve the next grade. Tang Sou Dao forms are unique to our style, and have all been created by the Founder Grandmaster Loke.

They comprise of Basic ‘Chee Pen’ forms, Intermediate ‘Yi Chuan’ forms, Advanced ‘Luo Han’ forms and 3 Advanced Kicking Forms. More videos are available on our Facebook page at Tang Sou Dao Ren Yi Wu Kwan, and on our Instagram page at tang.sou.dao
