Beijing Style – Ming Dynasty Martial Arts

Experience internal energy biomechanics with historical and modern combative concepts from the Beijing style of Chen Taijiquan. Beijing Chen is characterized as "Gongfu Jia" or martial frame Taijiquan, with a clear separation from the modern "gentle exercise" version. Beijing families emphasize the "New" Frame methods of training, which is regarded as the original Old Frame/Advanced methods of the historical Taijiquan. The traditional routines develop sophisticated internal strategy, to enhance power and martial precision, reinforcing biomechanics in one's primary defensive approach, empty hand or ancient/modern weapons. The advanced structures of Gongfu Jia Taijiquan compliment any martial system and are not limited to taijiquan- Taiji is often instructed to practitioners already skilled in other fighting systems. We recommend New Frame Taiji practice before the now popular "Old Frame Village Style". There is no separation in the historical art of Old, New, Big Frame, Small Frame. Gongfu Jia Taijiquan takes a nuanced biomechanical approach to the ancient art, sport fighting is not the focus- as one on one empty hand combatives is irrelevant in ancient times of conflict when traditional weapons were integrated. Complete historical understanding of the art requires the practicality of the art to not be lost. We specialize in private training. SEMESTER AND SPLIT RATE PROGRAMS NOW AVAILABLE
