During this time of the pandemic, I had a very valuable opportunity to attend Shifu Chen Zhonghua’s online class. By listening, seeing and following the instructions given in the class I began to understand the principles of the Taiji practical method and apply them to yilu and push hands. All this time I thought that I understood and could do yilu well, but what I understood was wrong. Read more

We are testing a new video hosting service that provide streaming support. This mean you can jump ahead in the video without having to wait for the video to download to that point.  Let me know in the comments if you have problem viewing it.

After some time of training and looking at master chen’s videos I feel confident enough to post a video. Any feedback is welcome. I’m planning to post some more on the other basic exercises.

Master Chen comments:

  • You need to do one yilu before taping. Warm up is necessary as you cannot immediately get into proper action yet. This is indicated in the fact that the second half of your yilu is drastically better than the first half.
  • Front trick and rear trick: rear foot should follow up a bit.
  • Power, structure and movements are all there.
  • You can start putting more SHOW into the form now.

 

(translated by Michael Koh of Singapore)
TaiJi Quan is a special and unique martial art from China. Similar to Chinese calligraphy, classics culture and Traditional Chinese Medicine, she is both profound and captivating. Causes many practitioners to train night and day, laboriously and diligently. However, the number of people who has mastered this art is like stars at dawn, far and few. My story of my Taiji journey is divided to before and after I come to know Master Chen Zhong Hua. This is my brief testimony as a show of gratitude (to Master Chen).

I started learning the Practical Method from video in February of this year (2011). Because I had studied Chen Style Taijiquan since 2006 and did not have a Practical Method teacher in my area, I thought I could learn from the wealth of information and videos available on the Practical Method website.

My first videos were the Basic Foundations and Yilu (First Routine) Detailed Instructions. I have since bought the Energy Alignment videos and various Mini Lessons. I also recommend Yilu Corrections.
