Instructor: Chen Bing Taiji Academy
Taiji or Tai chi (meaning grand ultimate) is a Chinese soft style internal martial art used for centuries in health, healing and longevity. Based on ancient principles of yin yang theory, philosophical laws of nature (the Tao), techniques of Chinese acupuncture and martial arts, authentic Chen Taiji is a holistic training method used to cultivate a strong body, mind and spirit through techniques of mental concentration with coordinated breath and body movements. Proper practice results in a supple body with improved postural alignment, balance and bone density. Taiji harmonizes external and internal energy flow which strengthen muscles, tendons and ligaments; while the internal spiraling energy massages internal organs and circulates qi energy flow throughout the body.
Additional benefits include a deeper sense of natural breathing along with a concentrated and tranquil mind. Strong emphasis is placed on intention and mental focus and is a suitable practice for all ages of students with various ailments and conditions.
Chen Taiji founded by Chen Wangting, is the oldest and parent form of all the styles of Taiji including Yang, Wu and Sun. We are fortunate to have the opportunity to learn from Laoshi (teacher) Master Bosco Baek, the only disciple in America of Master Chen Bing and the direct descendant of its creator Chen Wangting. Master Bosco Baek teaches the authentic Chen Jia
Gou (Chen Village) system and is a most knowledgeable and skillful teacher with precise attention to the details of alignment and structure that will challenge the most athletic and benefit the absolute beginner.
Series will cover 5 elements:
Fangsong- Taiji relaxation
Precursor to all classes - a highly therapeutic active relaxation process to correct one’s ailments, imbalances and alignment. releases deep seated muscular tension and fatigue.
Elixir field - Dantian rotation
The Elixir field or dantian is focal point where qi energy is stored and cultivated. Internal exercises of the dantian is very important for understanding the foundation of Chen Taiji.
Silk Reeling- Spiraling energy
Spiral motion is the foundation of Chen Taiji movement. It is required to perform Taiji forms and exercises.
Fajin- Explosive energy
From the concept yin and yang there are soft flowing movements and hard fast explosive movement, both necessary for maximum qi energy flow and internal healing.
13 Harmony Form- Short form
A short form summarized by Master Chen Bing in preparation of Laojia (old frame practices).
