By Jian Ge / commented by Jarek Szymanski

Chen Style Taijiquan has its origins in Chenjiagou village in Wen County, Henan Province. It was created by Chen Wangting, ninth generation descendant of Chen clan at the end of Ming dynasty and beginning of Qing dynasty, on the basis of the old martial art that had been passed within the family. Chen Wangting perfected the art and created five sets of Taijiquan, five sets of fist boxing (Wu Tao Chui), Thirteen Postures (Shi San Shi) as well as Canon Boxing (Pao Chui), weapons sets (spear, broadsword, straight sword, stick, maces, whip, etc) and especially unique methods of Pushing Hands (Tui Shou) and Sticky Spears (Zhan Qiang). In this way a very complete martial art system was created. In the process of evolution lasting over three hundreds years Yang, Wu (Jianquan), Wu (Yuxiang), Sun, Zhaobao and other styles have derived from Chen style Taijiquan.
