Tai Chi Chuan Yang Style will exploit the inner force of the body called Chi. Chi is the energy responsible for the whole emotive force of the organs, the thinking processes circulation and regeneration. The chi circulates through the body every 24 hours in one cycle stimulating and cleansing the various blockages in the body. Tai Chi Chuan, if performed correctly and wonderfully demonstrated in this video by Master Graham Horwood will stimulate the chi which is housed in the kidney area, it will circulate it, balance it and also store a surplus. One form of Tai Chi Chuan is the equivalent of a regular 24 hours cycle of chi so it is a form of internal acupuncture without needles. Tai Chi Chuan is of course only one aspect of health which is very powerful and this should be incorporated with a healthy balanced diet and a lifestyle that is conducive to harmony. Therefore Tai Chi being one of the oldest and most successful exercises that has ever been devised by human kind is an excellent way of stimulating and maintaining the chi circulation which is the motive force of the body. This is also explained in Graham Horwood’s book Tai Chi Chuan and the Code of Life to show how chi is related to DNA structure. Graham Horwood also has another publication titled the Key to Health with Cures from East to West which can be purchased here…

Chi Kung and posture:

Chi King means the science of the chi (chi is the internal energy that runs through the meridians ) In the Yang Family style Tai Chi there is method of stimulating the energy so mind and chi can come together and in this dvd video Master Graham Horwood demonstrates two distinct postures (one on each leg) which will enable you to connect the mind and the chi together to be able to circulate the chi at will through the body. This is a precursor to the moving the energy in the Tai Chi Form. This is known as movement within stillness.

Once you see this demonstration ( practicing to begin with may seem awkward ) you will have actually started to circulate and stimulate the Chi Flow in the body. So even for Tai Chi beginners doing this technique for the first time you will feel your body’s energy being in a state of activity to help cause harmony. Of course harmony and the energy balance of mind and body is what Tai Chi is all about. All this helps create stability so one can live in a more balanced way.

3) Tai Chi Chuan – Original Yang Form – with Chan Shu Jian (65 mins) ‘silk reeling method’ is a detailed method of expressing chi in the classic spiral technique, called the ‘silk reeling method’. This system makes the chi tensile, allowing it to penetrate into the bones, creating the steel wrapped in cotton of the Tai Chi masters. This method creates the ching or ‘mind chi’ which is a precursor of projecting chi out of the body for healing or martial practices.

Tai Chi Chuan Chan Shu Jian Silk reeling Form Video

Graham Horwood demonstrates the Original Yang Style Tai Chi Chan Shu Jian form as laid out by Yang Cheng Fu whose son taught Graham’s Master Chu King Hung. The Chan Shu Jian was developed in the 16/17th century.

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

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.

Tai Chi relies on the internal energy of the body to enhances chi, circulates chi, builds chi and stores chi which in turn increases health and life potential. There are a specific set of rules which help the flow the chi and align the body with the meridians. Graham explains this simple rules clearly by starting at the feet. These simple rules must be obeyed while doing this original Yang Style Tai Chi Chan Shu Jian form and Chi King.

Chan Shu Jian Silk reeling Form Video Cover PNG

Chen Wang Ting was a Tai Chi Master in the middle ages. He is attributed with developing, Chan Shu Jian ‘the silk cocoon reeling’ technique. This method exploits the advantages of spiral movements. This Master was inspired to create this method after watching the young Chinese girls, who tirelessly drew the fine delicate threads from the silk worms without breaking them. He observed that the girls could effortlessly do this, only if the movements were naturally gentle, slow, controlled and continuous, using circular actions to wind the silk thread. This natural yin or feminine attribute could tirelessly perform these actions without breaking the thread. The Chan Shu Jian, as well as having peerless martial implications, reinforces the chi in the meridians allowing chi to be stored in the bones. Chi is responsible for the immune system therefore this method of stimulating the marrow with chi strengthens health. Chan Shu Jian primes the waist to twist and turn, thus stimulating the kidney ‘essence’ Jing, the generative energy of an individual,  transforming it into chi. This action coupled with the circular movements of the arms and legs animates the chi creating a cohesive energy sphere out of the mind and body. The Yang family greatly improved Chan Shu Jian creating a more subtle and intrinsic method as shown in this dvd. All the moves of Tai Chi are performed in this spiral ‘Chan Shu Jian’ way, after the fashion of the Tai Chi Gu, ☯. The spiral is very much a part of cosmic law, to be found everywhere in Nature from the coil of galaxy, several light years across, right down to the humble snail which carries its own DNA code in a spiral on its shell. It is found in spiritual disciplines in all cultures such as the Celtic curls, also the Indian mystical tradition which adopted the Sanskrit word, kundalini to denote the primal yogic power, which means the ‘spiral or snake coil’ energy. There are a plethora of evolved man made spirals which increase efficiency, like the rifling of a gun barrel giving greater accuracy, the twist of flight feathers on an arrow, elliptical space orbit, the handyman’s drill bit, the builder’s screw, the Archimedes screw, the twist of a rope and so forth. The word spiral derives from same source as ‘spirit’ and ‘inspire’ etc. which means breath. Chi means breath.


4) Tai Chi Double Edge Sword – Gim_ with Chan Shu Jian and yin yang breathing techniques.

Tai Chi Chuan Double Edge Sword Form GIM

The Original Tai Chi Form is known as the Hand Form or the Earth Form which gives rise to the second classical Yang Family form demonstrated in this video called the Tai Chi Chuan Double Edge Sword Form or GIM (Double Edge Sword). The Double Edge Sword or GIM represents the Chinese element of water. This is because the Chinese Water element is tied to the kidney energy where the internal energy or chi of the body is housed.

By allowing the energy to flow down the sword is a form of telekinesis. By Following this Tai Chi Sword Form correctly you will be able to feel the energy or the Chi flowing down the sword for additional effect. To enhance this effect while doing the Tai Chi Sword Form you must focus the eyes where possible on the tip of the sword.

The Tai Chi Gim adopts martial postures in order to keep the form controlled, being designed to enhance the ability to project chi, internal energy, into another object or person. It has been specifically developed to enhance ‘water’ chi or jing the initial life force of the mind & body. It is a controlled form of telekinesis. This not only improves health by building and storing chi but enables the practitioner to heal not only himself or herself but others as well. This will improve the ability to understand chi as well as reading or controlling chi in others, whether in general healing, massage, acupuncture or clinical medicine.

The Sword itself has three parts, the top, the centre and the final part of the blade and in all being roughly 24 inches long. The tip of the sword was used classically in the martial state to cut and stab. The centre part of the sword was to block with the front being the stabbing side. The back of the sword was used purely and simply to parry. The sword is never used to cut or to chop but is used to deflect.

As is more relevant now in our modern time the sword form is used as a health form and you must focus the chi down the sword.

On the Yang side of the sword, where the chi is fought out, there is drawing pointing to the seven stars which is the Taoists symbol of where creation started.

On the Yin side of the sword you can see the phoenix which represents the Yin side of the Chi and also pointing to the seven stars.

All this is best summed up by Yang Chien Hou (1839-1917), whose great grandson taught Graham Horwood, and when challenged to a sword duel with another swordsman said he would not use his sword but a feather duster. This is because the skill of the sword is in the turning and using the intrinsic energy along the blade where the GIN and the Chi flow into what could be any inanimate object.

This has a two fold function where you can you can use the chi flowing down the sword intros Tao Chi Sword Form to heal from within.

The Tai Chi ‘Gim’ sword is based on the Yang family solo form, although originally having martial implications has evolved into a health system to stimulate chi transportation. These unique actions, especially stimulate ‘kidney essence’ or pre birth chi, being the ’water form’. This ‘Gim’ sword form will strengthen the joints, mental awareness, balance, improve hand eye co-ordination and short term memory loss. It is also a method of practising energy stimulation in yourself and others, making it a dynamic health tool as well.

The easy to follow video clearly shows how to link the chi through the tunes of arms, legs and body with internal energy into the sword. Naturally strengthening & balancing health, the internal organs, bone structure, immune system & aerobic function.

Originally the broad sword was for the Chinese foot soldier and not a very gentlemanly weapon. In later forms a single edge sword was used and this was the father of the samurai sword but the moves are different. This Tai Chi Chuan Sabre Form was used by Chinese nobility and also for the Yang Family.

In the is demonstration Graham Horwood uses the larger broad sword as it is more common and is more visual and easier to follow through on this video.

Despite the Tai Chi Chuan Sabre Sword Form being a faster form than the double edge sword or original hand form, the movements must also link to the centre. The Tai Chi Sabre Form movements must be light and smooth and when the centre turns the sword must turn even when the movements are faster, all expertly shown in this video.

In the form you have the Apex of energy which is shown at the end of the video. The Apex shows the different cuts which have 8 forms – 3 Down, 3 Up, Left and Right making the eight fold petal or Pa Kua.
