Learn Tai Chi Step by Step with Master Chenhan

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.

  1. Learn the form step by step, and understand the purpose of each movement.
  2. Enjoy low-impact whole-body exercise, good for all fitness levels.
  3. 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.
