Chen Family Taijiquan Tuishou. They either have to figure it out for themselves or just dream about taijiqaun. Dreaming about it, that works very well on the internet. It is easy enough to understand that originally it was not so different than a lot of other Chinese martial arts in the area of technique and focused practices.

After an adventurous life as a warrior, he returned to his village to develop his martial skills. Regarding number 1, Tuishou is simply NOT fighting even less than wrestling shuaijiao is. Grandmaster Chen Xiao Wang is one of the most famous Taiji masters living today.

Today the Taijiquan that most people study comes from the Old Frame. These will help to cover principles found in both the old and new frame forms and help us to learn to move from the waist and Dantian, develop relaxation and right posture.

Wang Xian is one of the top three taijiquan practitioners alive today. The main elements of practice in current popular Chen Taujiquan are forms: Some of these are big, some are small, some are just jin, and some are compounded and very complicated.

Eventually you learn to defend against strong attacks cyen using less energy. In my earliest Chen Taijiquan instruction I was lucky enough to be exposed to a very detailed system of drills and practices. In traditional Taijiquan all forms are called Jia.
