Chen Tai Chi: Old Frame First Form (Chen Taijiquan Lao Jia Yi Lu) – Tai Chi Hangout

Chen Tai Chi at its finest. Chen is the original Tai Chi form as stated in many history books about the martial arts. This is an outstanding production of the Chen Old Form performed by Andrew Pitt.

This form is considered by many to be the oldest known traditional Tai Chi long form. It consists of 74 movements (some counts give 75 or other numbers of movements, but 74 is a fairly common count) which emphasize the silk reeling energy of Tai Chi. This is the form traditionally taught to beginners in Chen Style Tai Chi to teach them the basics and to develop their body’s ability to execute Tai Chi movements.
