CHEN Style Tai Chi Chuan Workbook

“Sooner or later everyone comes to Tai Chi…”

Ko Hung Lao

Tai Chi Chuan is a particularly long and complicated kata (dance or formal exercise) that was called The Great Dance in ancient times. In contrast to most of the forms encountered in martial arts, this one is slow, uses no “power” or speed, and stressed balance and breathing above all else. There are many techniques that seem to serve no combat or self defense function but the techniques are there nonetheless. Hidden within the subtle movements. Ready to be applied against any attacker with lightning speed when activated by the power of fear. Yet the practice of it conveys to the Tai Chi Player a sense of calm and self assurance. Like most transcendental subjects, the depth and meaning of this exercise cannot be truly conveyed in mere words. The only way to truly understand it is to learn the form and do it for a few years. Then, one day, you will look back and realize how far you have come, how much you have benefited from the practice, and all the subliminal lessons you have learned about health, longevity and your self. It’s worth the effort. This book teaches Chen Style Tai Chi Chuan.

This Tai Chi Chuan Instructional Note/Workbook is designed and intended primarily for those who have decided to learn this exercise after age fifty.
