About Northwest Baltimore Chen Tai Ji

The Chen family-style (é³å®¶ãé³æ° or é³å¼ 太極æ³) is the oldest and parent form of the five traditional family styles. It can also be used for a health exercise as well as for rehab work. Chen-style is characterized by Silk reeling (chán sÄ« jìn; çºçµ²å), alternating fast/slow motion and bursts of power (fa jin; ç¼å).[1] Contemporary t'ai chi ch'uan is typically practised for a number of widely varying reasons: health, external/internal martial art skills, aesthetics, meditation or as an athletic/competition sport (sometimes called "wushu tai chi"). Therefore a teacher's system, practice and choice of training routines usually emphasizes one of these characteristics during training.
