Chen Ziqiang in London 2018: Foundation training

Tai Ji Circle were honoured to be able to host Master Chen Ziqiang for three sessions in London. The first evening was on Foundation Chen training, after a strong warm-up we were taken through Zhang Zhaung, Standing Post training.  This is the important introduction to Chen style, and through working with the standing practice the body posture can be corrected, and emphasis placed on the work and heat/energy produced in the legs. Another essential is the silk reeling exercises, moving the body and arms, correcting weight changing and posture. Master Chen worked with several students to individually check and correct the angle of the pelvis and legs, a wonderful experience.
