CHALK FARM • LONDON

We are very fortunate to be able to learn the exciting Chen Double swords form with Master Chen over two days, from Friday afternoon to evening and all day Saturday at Haversack School Sports Hall in Chalk Farm, Camden.

Double Swords is a beautiful and powerful weapon form containing many circular defensive and attacking techniques. After a much practice each attack and defence should be executed with speed and force. Weapons routines aim to help us learn how to integrate the movement of the weapon/s so that it feels as if it is part of the body, controlled from the energy and movement of the internal dantian. It is advisable to  have had some previous weapons experience.

The son of Grandmaster Chen Xiaoxing, Master Chen Ziqiang is a 20th generation direct descendant of the Chen Family Taijiquan, the Chief Coach of the prestigious Chenjiagou Taijiquan School and a renowned tai ji champion in China and worldwide.

All students of Taijiquan are welcome
