    Thanks Hugo for asking to show the techniques on somebody, which then was you. All this “Energies” are becoming more clear now. Good Video!!

    Master Chen question please. I saw master Feng doing hunyun on a youtube video no narrative speaker. Is your hunyun instruction teaching video the same movements as his on the youtube video?

  • 2017/08/14: Gerry Gebhart on Notes for North American Practical Method Training Camp 2017

    Great notes! Must have been a great workshop. While live stream was technically challenged, I did get enough to think about. Looks like a good group. I regret missing it. See us in Phoenix in January!

    Steve Doob- at 75 years young, seeing you energetically attend all the sessions, and test your skills on the mat…man! you are an inspiration ! I enjoyed working with you at the workshop (and the airport). Hope to see you soon and hope that we are both still doing this when I am 75 and you are 95.

  • 2017/08/13: Steve Doob on Notes for North American Practical Method Training Camp 2017

    I had a great time at the camp. I liked everything about it. John and Levi had the logistics so well in hand that they could participate in most of the sessions and still appear relaxed. The location was lovely, the staff was friendly and served tasty food and all the participants were fun and eager to help.

    People have told me I have SPD—Self Perception Disorder—and the workshop made it clear that they were right. Maybe I’m not as young as I think I am. I had never tried the kind of push hands where the object is to throw you to the ground. Now that my knee is healed I think I should leave such pushing to the youngsters who were so good at it.

    I came to the camp all full of myself, thinking I was pretty good at the Yilu I’d been practicing for several months. My bubble was swiftly burst, but I brought home a lot of things to think about and practice that will keep me excited at least until the next workshop. Looking forward to the next Iowa camp!

    Changes Made, also made it clearer. If I’ve missed anyone else please let me know and I will update it. It is a factor of my poor memory.


  • 2017/08/09: Hugo Ramiro on North American Taiji Training Camp 2017 Notes

    Hi Jeff, thanks for a great article which I will reread again a couple of times!
    A geographical note, however – while Ontario is the best, we can also add at least two other locations: Alberta (Edmonton – Master Chen), and Saskatchewan (Saskatoon – Brennan).

  • 2017/08/03: Rick Pietila on “Daqingshan 2016 Seminar” Online Video Trailer

    In these two videos Master Chen talks and demonstrates the elbow/kua alignment in such a clear fashion! He also talks about the progression from middle to lower, middle to above links that are in use of the hand foot connection for navigation. goes on to talk about when pulling-use the toes, pushing- use the heel, power being on both ends, not in the middle. A must have video for anyone looking for the correct body alignment used on yourself, against the opponent.

  • 2017/07/31: Thanos on “Two Lines and Stretch” Online Video Trailer

    A really nice video and with some interesting stories about Chen Fake and Master Hong! I remeber when i met Master Chen for the first time in Lin Yi i think,when we went to the restaurant with the rest of his close students,he used to practice the hand strech and while we were waiting for lunch he made a small lecture about it. Didn’t get much that time i have to admit! Watching this video clears a lot of things in my head!

  • 2017/07/26: Allan Belsheim on Chen Style Taijiquan Practical Method (Book)

    Unfortunately, this is the only section of Hong’s book available in English. There are four more parts yet to be translated into books. However, this book provides exceptional insights into and a platform for understanding the intricacies of Chen Style Practical Method.

  • 2017/07/21: Ominae1 on “Berlin 2016-6” Online Video Trailer

    Thank you Master Chen great video.
    I have a question about issue power or fajin and this video. It seems that the hit shown here is different to the punch (in the form for example), where one looks like the result of the spine vertical ondulation, the other look the result from rotation and compression. I want to know if I’m correct here, or there is ondulation in the Yilu punch too? Can the spine make a vertical ondulation during a rotation? Or there are two or more different ways to issue power?
    I hope that you can see these questions and thank you for share your knowledge.

  • 2017/06/20: Lucas Brouns on Prague 2017 Workshop Photos

    Dear reader,

    The workshop in Prague have been so good.
    The practicing and instruction methods were set up nice and smooth.
    This created much space to learn from master Chen Zhonghua, from Brennan, from each other (and from your self I reckon).

    I write this review from Amersfoort, in the Netherlands. Please comment as you like. [Admin, feel free to repost this if there is a better place in the website.]

    There was a fine balance in some more intensive excersises and giving yourself a rest.
    For two items the group was split up but mostly we were all together.
    Sometimes a small group got together after one of the breaks, to start a little earlier with stories or exercises.

    In external martial arts, the muscle looks great; it is easier to practice because people will watch you. So our style is more difficult to practice..

    At the age of arount 60 human muscle and bones start declining. It’s ok to use muscle in excersising to learn Yilu. But we work towards using less muscle.

    Grandmaster Chen Zhonghua advised us: “Practice Yilu every day. Do the Foundations.” We said farewell and thanked the Master.

    After the weekend, I personally felt my bones were stronger and whatever is around my bones is more relaxed.
    I felt at home in my body and had some wonderful memories from a safe period in m childhood.
    I created an opening in a pestering little conflict with a neightbour, that had lasted for several years.
    Some excersises were hard but I skipped a few as my body condition is not so good in this period of my life.
    Still I have done things I would’t have guessed I could do.

    I wish the Master, the Disciples and everybody here good luck. Thank You and See you again!
    Thank you Lukas and Pavel for the hospitality.

  • 2017/06/18: Jossy92 on “Prague 2016-15” Online Video Trailer

    What a great online way to learn for a beginner to this style of TC!

    Watch video…practice….re-watch video….practice….re-watch….practice….Rewa…..etc.,etc.
    I try to “feel” the movement over and over until my “grasp” of it stabilizes and begins to match what the audio is saying. Probably making lots of mistakes, but I have something stable enough to correct as I practice.
    Very, very greatful for these short clips.

  • 2017/06/09: Todd Elihu on About Athens Class

    Hi Maurice,

    As far as I know, there are no certified instructors of the Chen Style Taijiquan Practical Method in the Charleston area. I recommend that you attend one of Chen Zhonghua’s North American workshops to learn the fundamentals and supplement your instruction with the many videos available through this workshop. If you are ever in Northeast Georgia, I’d be happy to arrange a private lesson with you.

    Thank you,

  • 2017/05/21: Nicholas on Peng: Is it written 掤 or 棚?

    乐 might be what is referred to as 間筆字. Prior to the existence of “simplified” characters, there were only characters. 会, for example, has a Japanese original, and it is the Japanese version of “simplified” characters. Many terms and characters are reborrowed from Japan.

    When learning a language, one should learn it for its entirety, and not go for what you feel is easier. That would be like learning another form of Taiji where they don’t do open kua exercise because it would be easier. Many Chinese scholars (ones in China) end up learning characters, they conclude that the linguistic evolution of the “simplified” characters do not make sense (as mentioned above by Frank) and inconsistent, which is the reason why it is harder to learn. And should writing a few more strokes be deemed as harder, especailly when we now punch characters in phonetically anyway?
