What is Chen Taijiquan?

Chen Style Taijiquan (or Tai Chi Chuan) is an ancient Chinese art of exercise which is characterized by fluid, coiling movements punctuated with quick bursts of energy. It combines philosophy of Yin-Yang, knowledge of Traditional Chinese Medicine, and fighting techniques of the late Ming Dynasty. Chen Taijiquan cultivates both health benefits and self-defense skills. It can be practiced at any age and at any place. This group is dedicated to Chen Zhaokui line represented by his son Chen Yu.

Who is Chen Yu?

Chen Yu is a 19th generation lineage holder in Chen Family Taijiquan and is the only son of renown master Chen Zhaokui. He began studying Taiji with his father at the age of 7. He has spent many years of diligent work developing and preserving his father’s art. Chen Yu is known for his explosive power (or Fa Jin) as well as seizing (or Chin Na) techniques. He carries forth the tradition of Chen Style Taijiquan by spreading the teaching of his father around the world.
