Beijing Artifact – Feudal Tai Chi Chuan/ Bajiquan
Revive historical context in feudal Chinese martial arts- ancient kungfu in its pure form is mostly extinct in the modern world. Popular Tai Chi Chuan instruction today- stems from the PEKING OPERA tradition and wushu reforms in China, contrary to the original systems in the ancient era. Modern Tai Chi promotions have undergone two waves of sports modifications since 1928. It is our belief Feudal Taijiquan preservation requires a clear division of goals in contemporary times- separating historical truth, sport, and modern exercise therapy. ACT features Feudal Biomechanics Training to enhance connections between the motor cortex and the body- for the scholar or athlete. We also emphasize historical accuracy and Real-World Self-Defense for the warrior. Our organization’s approach is research/ biomechanical, peaceful, & scholarly exploration into the world of feudal Chen Tai Chi Chuan- before commercialization. We are a martial studies organization dedicated to preserving original Taijiquan and Bajiquan. All levels of practitioners interested in refined biomechanics, martial concepts, and raw history are welcome- the foundation is Beijing Chen Taijiquan. Our organization cross-trains Wutan Bajiquan from the Liu Yun Qiao line. Beijing Chen is characterized as “Gongfu Jia” or martial frame Taijiquan, retaining most of the medieval elements from ancient lineages- containing both Ming Dynasty armored and Qing Dynasty non-armored historical artifact. GONGFU JIA Chen Taijiquan is unique primarily because of the feudal BAJIQUAN integration and improved unarmed strategy popularized in the late Qing and Republic of China era. Bajiquan and Gongfu Jia Taijiquan descend from the same late Ming era roots- separated in the early 20th century. Beijing Chen/ Bajiquan have inseparable connections and have the same genetic similarities. The principals of Gongfu Jia Taijiquan/ Bajiquan complement any martial system and experience of individuals interested in historical insight into ancient kingdoms. Medieval Taijiquan and Bajiquan takes a nuanced biomechanical approach to the historical methods- backed by factual research and military science. We specialize in distance monitoring and private training.
