Silk Reeling

Chan Si Gong or Silk Reeling Energy is one of the fundamental methods of training in Taijiquan and is necessary if to develop & realise both the maximum health benefit & martial advantage.  

The silk-reeling exercises provide a means of eliminating stiffness, improving elasticity, & improving flexibility.  All Taiji movement is achieved through silk-reeling energy which contains the three components of relaxation, extension & turning/twisting.  

An important goal of these exercises is to open & loosen the major joint areas of the body (neck, shoulders, elbows, wrists, chest, abdomen, waist, kua, hips, knees, & ankles).  The slow, even, twining movements stretches & strengthens the muscles & tendons making them less susceptible to injury.

Laojia Yilu

Chen Taijiquan is the oldest style practiced today and is widely acknowledged to be the ancestor of all other styles. Chen Taijiquan (T'ai Chi Ch'uan) first developed this 75 Movement Hand Form which is well known today as Yi Lu Laojia. It is characterized by whole-body twining & coiling movements with occasional explosive releases of power. It is an ancient form which fully encompasses the Tai Chi principles. Laojia is a methodical way in which to learn both the principles & techniques of Taijiquan.

Refining technique & movement transitions cannot be learnt from books or DVDs alone but requires regular practice and instruction with a teacher who can both direct & develop the progression of your skill. Join us for a master class & experience the best.
