Shanghai Pathways is hosting a 2hrs Chen Style Tai Chi Workshop with the 20th generation grandmasters of the Chen family lineage. Tai chi is not always done in slow motion. The Chen tai chi style includes a number of fast, explosive moves, jumping kicks, cannon fists, and thundering stomps—even for beginners. Chen Style Tai Chi is considered the source of the major styles of Tai Chi (TaiJi). The founders of both Yang Style and Wu style trained at the Chen Village, then left and opened their arts to the public. While those styles spread and became popular, Chen style continued to be taught only in Chen village and was not as well known. Now the secret is out, and Chen TaiJi is gaining in popularity as people discover the silk reeling exercises and coiling movements of the original style of TaiJi. If you’re athletically inclined or are looking for an exciting tai chi style, consider the Chen. During this workshop, you will have an opportunity to learn about the principles of movement in Tai Chi, and an introduction to Zhanzhuang. It is bilingual and suitable for children. This is an excellent workshop for those with no tai chi experience as well as those with a high level of skill in tai chi or other martial arts. The price is 198rmb for members and 298rmb for nonmembers. Join and register for the event by scanning the QR code on the poster.
