The eight and the sixteen tai chi sets evolved from the need to introduce beginners to a set of forms that are easy to learn and practice. The eight and sixteen tai chi sets teaches the beginner.
1. Movement and linking of a set of tai chi forms that will help the student to learn the standard forms.
2. Names and positions of a set of forms that are easy and quick to learn .
3. A way to practice a simplified tai chi set without requiring a large space to practice in.
The eight tai chi set is practiced from almost on the spot position.
The 16 set is first performed on one side of the body (to the right or to the left), closely followed with a performance on the opposite side of the body.

True perfection seems imperfect, yet it is perfectly itself. True fullness seems empty, yet it is fully present. True straightness seems crooked. True wisdom seems foolish. True art seems artless. The master allows things to happen by themselves. She fashions events as they arise. She stands aside and allows the Tao to explain all simply by being. Lao Tzu
