Chen Village (Chen Xiaoxing)Tai Chi Quan School

The Chen Jia Gou Taiji School was found originally by Grandmaster Chen Zhaopei and now run by Chen Xiao Xing, Chen Xiao Wang's brother and grandson of Chen Fake. It was the first school to provide an intensive Tai Chi education for Chinese students, often from the age of 5 upwards. There are usually around one hundred students boarding at the school and others come in from the nearby area.

Chinese and foreign students are also welcome to stay on a shorter term basis and usually train for anywhere from a week to a year. Some students have returned year after year to explore the real depth of Chen Tai Chi and this is possible to achieve at this school.

The style is the same as Chen Xiao Wang's and they can no doubt teach his short forms 19 & 38, if these are required as well as Lao Jia Yi Lu, Er Lu & Xin Jia... The main teacher is Chen Xiao Xing's son, Chen Zi Qiang, who is also a very high level practitioner, famous in China and he is assisted by his brother Chen Zi Jun.There are many other good teachers residing in the school as well and so this may be an interesting place to learn the art of Chen Tai Chi.
