I tried out my ‘fluid  four’ today, where I do the tai chi form four times facing east, south, west, and north — but with the addition of a few steps designed to get me from the end of one form to the beginning of the next. It’s certainly not fluid yet, but it’s interesting.  I think it’s going to be important to do both — both the single forms, so I remember where they begin and end, and the longer forms, so that I develop fluidity in the changeover.
