Chen Style Taijiquan is a martial arts skills class, if properly acquired, enables the practitioner to overcome the brute force of physically stronger opponents. This makes it an ideal form of self-defence for anyone seeking higher level techniques regardless of martial art experience.
A number of different forms of Chen style are taught in this class. These are used as a tool to help develop strength, balance, coordination, and understanding of basic Taiji principles. The strength of the form is based on the basic “Chan Si Jing” (spiral energy/force).
