Chen Style Tai Chi: Classic Old Frame Two (Cannon Fist) Form, with Shifu Liu
June 11, 2016 @ 1:30 pm - 6:30 pm
TJC’s seminar with Shifu Liu will take an in depth look at Loajia Er Lu, the Second Old Frame, known as the Cannon Fist of Chen style Taijiquan.
Laojia Yi Lu, the Old Frame One and Laojia Er Lu, were compiled by Chen Changxing (1771-1853) 14th generation standard bearer, from the original hand form sets of tai ji originator, Chen Wanting (1600-1680), a general of the Ming dynasty in China.
Laojia Yi Lu, is the oldest tai ji routine from which all the modern tai ji styles are derived, such as Yang and Wu styles. Laojia Er lu, or Second Frame, that Shifu Liu is teaching in the seminar, has 45 movements, and is the dynamic counterpart to Yi Lu, the Yang to the Yin and the two forms together harmonise the body’s Yin and Yang.
The seminar will teach the routine with posture and movement correction, covering the fajin, energy releases, and different aspects and techniques of the form. There will be refreshment breaks and the opportunity to ask questions.
The routine is very vigourous and only suitable for those with tai chi experience.
