September Workshop in Kansas City



Saturday, September 16th: 3:00pm -6:00pm

Laojia Yilu (Old Frame Routine One):
Sections Five and Six Corrections

In this workshop, Chen Huixian will work with students on Sections Five and Six of the Laojia Yilu form. The class will go through the fifth and sixth sections of the long form, posture by posture, movement by movement.

This is the traditional method of training Tai Chi in Chenjiagou (the Chen Village). It is a very slow and intense process that helps students to refine the individual details of each posture. There will also be time for students to ask questions about specific movements in this section.
