Tai Chi Silk Reeling Method Chan Shu Jian – Video Download (65 mins)

Graham Horwood demonstrates the Original Yang Style Tai Chi Chan Shu Jian form as laid out by Yang Cheng Fu.

The Chan Shu Jian ‘Silk Weaving Form’ refers to the spiralling inner or chi breathing techniques perfected by the Yang family over the centuries.

Chi in its usual course flows in lines along the meridians near blood vessels, daily nourishing the muscles, tendons & body tissue. Whereas Chan Shu Jian encourages the chi to spiral into the bone as well, harmonising & storing chi in the marrow for healing or martial purposes, creating a ‘chi battery’. Hence the Tai Chi maxim that a Master has bones as hard as steel yet as if wrapped in cotton wool.

In this Original Yang Style Tai Chi Video download Graham firstly shows the general posture for Tai Chi Beginners to this method of the Yang Style.
