My humble collection of Tai Chi 
wooden practice swords. These are Jian, 
Chinese straight swords, used in Kung Fu
and Tai Chi. The small, home-made sword on 
the right is for indoor practice with 
reduced home interior damage.

KUNG FU  

Demystifying Tai Chi: 

The Secret Behind the Enemy

What is the real kung fu!

 

A young Chinese man tells his story of tai chi in modern China. He recounts how his grandfather, Feng Zhiqiang (1928-2012), settled in Beijing in the 1930s and studied with many great tai chi masters. The two most famous were Chen Faké (1887-1957) and Hu Yaozhen (1879-1973). 

 

The art passed down to him is Hunyuan Style tai chi, a refined Chen Style tai chi system influenced by the martial arts, Shanxi Hsing Yi and Tongbeiquan. Hunyuan is very similar to Chen Style and emphasizes spiraling internal principals. He comments on misconceptions of tai chi and the dedication it takes. He also reflects on the nature of society in comparison with tai chi principles.

“Lots of people changed the form. I am the only one that did not change the form. I still haven’t studied everything. How can I change it? The  ancients were so good, how can you change something that they developed with their high skills.”

- Fu Zhong Wen
