Lesson One: "First Form, Lao Jia Yi Lu, is the first form learned in Chen Tai Chi (or "First Road", Yi Lu, 陈氏太极老架一路). Chen-style tai chi can be traced back to the 1400's in an unbroken lineage and has become one of the most popular internal martial arts in the world. In this program, Master Chenhan Yang teaches you the first form, the standard 74-posture "Old Frame" (Lao Jia) Chen style, also known as the "First Road" (Yi Lu). Master Chenhan demonstrates the form multiple times, guiding you with step-by-step instructions and explaining the purpose of each movement.

The postures of traditional Chen-style tai chi still possess their martial arts roots, but they are often practiced slowly as a form of gentle whole-body moving meditation.

•  Enjoy low-impact whole-body exercise, good for all fitness levels.

• Master the popular 74-posture First Form for demonstrations and tournaments.

Tai chi will increase your circulation, resulting in improved vitality and longevity, and it will develop your mind's alertness, awareness, and concentration. Most importantly, as you practice, pay attention to the feeling within the movements, so you may appreciate the profound essence of tai chi chuan.

 

Lesson Two: Cannon Fist, Pao Chui, is the second form learned in Chen Tai Chi (or "Second Road", Lao Jia Er Lu, 炮捶 俗称二路).

Chen-style tai chi can be traced back to the 1400s in an unbroken lineage and has become one of the most popular internal martial arts in the world. In this program, Master Chenhan Yang teaches you the standard 43-posture "Old Frame" (Lao Jia) second form of traditional Chen style, known as Cannon Fist (Pao Chui). Master Chenhan demonstrates the form multiple times, guiding you with step-by-step instructions and explaining the purpose of each movement.

The postures of traditional Chen-style tai chi still possess their martial arts roots, but they are often practiced slowly as a form of gentle whole-body moving meditation.

Lesson Three: Combine forms 1 & 2 with the standard Chen-style 56-movement form, with step-by-step instructions explaining the purpose of each movement.

The movements still possess their martial arts roots but are often practiced slowly as a form of gentle whole-body exercise.
