Beijing Artifact – Feudal Tai Chi Chuan/ Bajiquan
Welcome to Ancient Chen Tai Chi, where we focus on historical biomechanics, contemporary self-defense, and academic studies of Chinese Martial Systems. 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/ Bajiquan- adapted for modern lifestyles. 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. We specialize in distance monitoring and private training.
