Chen Ziqiang will be returning to Chicago to teach his family’s art. Chen Laoshi will teach stretching, standing post, silk-reeling exercises, and push hands training and skills.

Stretching, standing post, and silk reeling exercises serve as essential fundamentals for deep Taiji development. Push hands practice is also a vital component to Taiji training, providing important feedback informing one’s form training as well as a means to investigate and practice applications from the movements.
