Martial Mind

≡Enhance human performance with ancient neuromechanics, training historical "body skill" with martial psychology.≡ The dantian is the energy center powerhouse in Internal Martial Art practitioners, located about three fingers width below the navel. Feudal Tai Chi practitioners coordinate breath with distinct rotations of the muscle groups surrounding the lower abdominal and kidney areas. This unique mind-body connection, heightens cognition and coordination with energy flow, as well as strengthening shields of muscles which protect the internal organs of the abdominal core region. The dantian muscles rotate methodically horizontally, vertically, and diagonally connecting every segment of the human body with the mind/generating precision energy circulation along the meridian pathways.

 

 

Frame Work

≡Experience ancient kinetics and focused power with principals of Beijing Style Chen Tai Chi Chuan.≡ Explore martial concepts and historical framework of feudal Taijiquan. The system of Internal Science is a centuries-old evolution of Ming Dynasty military treatise, branching from the methodology of General Qi Jiguang in mid 16th century. The Chen Tai Chi routines specialize in historical "body skill" which develop distinct muscular control, utilizing spiraling force combined with medieval China fighting strategy and weapons. Frames may train slower pace for precision (or heavy armor usage) with muscular layering- emphasizing shocking power and explosive release of energy, coordinating movement and torque of the entire body. The Chen Tai Chi Chuan framework develops the body as if it is steel wrapped in cotton, capable of adaptive flexibility and stopping power in the modern or medieval era.

 

 

 

Combative Concepts

≡Apply principals of movement and function, using refined mechanics to redirect outside forces.≡  Activate the psychology of combat with proper historical context- using leverage and feudal structures to neutralize outside forces. Taijiquan is a sophisticated system of martial physics, utilizing nuanced martial strategy and body mechanics. Muscular rotations are developed with a focus on the micro and macro levels. Very subtle movements and flex methods are used to zoom in on the natural biomechanics of martial structures- to supplement civilians and soldiers. Taiji emphasizes technical concepts of rooting, moving and following, sticking with an opponent/ spiraling every joint in the human body with gear-like control. The ancient classics describe Taijiquan as an art capable of deflecting thousand pounds of force with four ounces of strength, through the understanding of complex internal mechanics and practical modern weaponry. Develop fluent functionality of applications in the Ancient Chen (Old/New Frames) Taiji Systems.
