22.10.2022: Classic Chen Taijiquan, Laojia Yi Lu London Workshop

Shifu Liu is revising movements and teaching some of the fajin and applications from this traditional Chen routine. This is to give everyone a sense and structure of the inner meaning of each movement. Laojia Yi Lu has 75 movements and is the basis of many other Chen style tai ji routines that use the underlying structure in the sequencing of other Chen hand routines.

It is characterised as Yin with many soft, smooth twining movements indispersed with fajing, energy releases such as a punches or kicks. Laojia Yi Lu was created by Chen Changxing in the 19th C, from the original sets of tai ji originator, Chen Wanting, a general of the Ming dynasty in China. It is the oldest tai ji routine from which many modern tai ji styles originate, such as Yang and Wu styles.
