25 March: Xinjia Yi Lu – Chen New Frame Workshop with Shifu Liu
March 25 @ 1:00 pm - 6:00 pm
83 Step Form, Xinjia Yi Lu – New Frame 1st Form
Shifu Liu will be teaching the advanced Chen Taijiquan Routine Xinjia Yi Lu in this five hour workshop.
Grandmaster Chen Xiao Wang’s grandfather, Chen Fake created the “Xinjia” forms, so called ‘New Frame’ because it was adapted from the classic old frame. The main difference from old frame (Laojia Yi Lu) is that the movements are smaller and there is more obvious torso twisting, silk reeling and twining of the arms/wrists is employed. This form tends to emphasise manipulation, seizing and grappling (qinna) rather than striking techniques.
In Chen village schools, Xinjia Yi Lu is learned once Laojia Yi Lu is mastered after 3 years. Xinjia has two routines the Yi Lu and Er Lu, 1st ‘yin’ and 2nd ‘yang’ forms.
Suitable for those with Chen Taijiquan experience, who are familiar with Laojia Yi Lu or Chen Xiao Wang’s 38 Step Form.
Five hour workshops with refreshment breaks
