Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Chen Family (or Chen Style) Taiji is the ancestor of all Taiji systems. Unlike many of the easy, meditative Taiji forms practiced in the West, Chen Style Taiji is a highly evolved martial art. Newcomers to the art will find useful information on how to identify a qualified instructor, while the martial arts theorist will find a thorough discussion concerning the origins and evolution of Taiji.

Synopsis:

Chen Family (or Chen Style) Taijiquan is a martial art, not a meditation exercise like Western-style Taiji. Chen Family Taijiquan incorporates a variety of vigorous techniques such as leaping, dodging, striking, throwing, and locking. This guide contains illustrated, detailed breakdowns of several Taijiquan exercises including basic hand and foot techniques, standing meditation, the first solo routine, two-person combat exercises, and martial applications, along with the history and theory of the practice.
