 Chen Taijiquan - Lao Jia Yi Lu & Straight Sword (D (View larger image)

Master Ren Guang Yi has worked tirelessly to bring Chen style Taijiquan (Tai Chi Chuan) to the West since 1991. In this DVD, he beautifully demonstrates two fundamental Chen-style Taiji forms: the 75-movement long form, 'Lao Jia Yi Lu' (Old Frame First Road), and the 49-movement 'Straight Sword' form. Captured in high-definition in New York's Central Park, each form is presented in a multiple-angle format, and showing the name of each movement. Each form is also shown in a slideshow comprising nearly 2,000 photographs by famed photographer Martin von Haselberg -so you may carefully study each of Master Ren's postures in detail. A martial artist since the 1980s and a private student of Master Ren, artist/musician Lou Reed has experienced first-hand the health benefits and power of Master Ren's teaching, and has done a great deal to raise awareness of Chen Taiji worldwide. Reed took Master Ren on tour to perform onstage in hundreds of shows across Europe and the US. This program features an ambient electronic soundtrack and on-screen narration by Lou Reed. Chen Style Taijiquan is a comprehensive form of exercise that promotes fitness, coordination and relaxation which remains true to its ancient martial arts origins. Chen Taijiquan is noted for its fluid, coiled movements, punctuated with quick bursts of energy, known as 'Fa Jing'. Regular practice promotes wellness through a series of continuous, flowing movements, while providing powerful tools for self-defence.
