Chen Style Taiji Vol. 1
Chen Style Taiji Vol. 1
First volume of the Chen Taiji instructional DVD.
This video has been digitally re-mastered from the original archival footage to enhance clarity and resolution. Additional footage from Multiple camera angles utilizing digital slow motion, at one third speed of live movement, are portrayed for amazing insights into body mechanics never before seen on an instructional video. Additional voiceover scenes have also been added to the presentation. Together, these techniques are employed for a complete learning experience. This is by far the best Chen style Tai Chi Video on the market today. The Small Circle form of Chen Tai Chi is known for repetitive spiralic motion to emphasize the Chan Ssu Jin (Silk Reeling Energy). And it contains more complexity and technical richness than can be found in the Old Frame of Chen Style. Volume One features the first half of the Long form of the Small Circle style of Chen Tai Chi, which is as strikingly beautiful as it is effective for both health maintenance and fighting technique. We broke the 86 posture form into shorter sections to make it easier to absorb. And we utilized multiple camera angles to portray it fully, at very slow speed utilizing voiceover to point out potential trouble spots. The linked form is presented once at normal practice speed and also once in digital slow motion, at one third live speed, so that you may see the true measure of the body mechanics, continuity and fluidity of the method. Then finally, at the end of the presentation, Shr Fu does a thorough job of breaking down potential applications of the entire first half of the form in sequential detail, many of which have never been seen anywhere in any medium. This is truly the definitive learning experience for the true Chen Style advocate. An absolute must!
Running time = 58 minutes.
