2018 Hermann sepia 01From Thursday, May 31 to Sunday, June 3, 2018 in Herbram / Lichtenau (North Rhine-Westphalia) Germany

The 2nd Cherusker Camp with Chen Taijiquan Xiaojia in NRW takes place in May / June 2018 in Lichtenau / Herbram, and is named after the people who once lived here in ancient times, the Cherusci. The colossal statue of "Hermann" is reminiscent of its history.

We invite all Taijiquan Xiaojia enthusiasts and all those who want to know, feel and experience the small frame, from 31.5. - 3.06.2018 to intensively and extensively train Taijiquan on 4 days. Again this year we will train together, laugh, chat, talk, meet old friends and meet new people. We are looking forward to seeing new faces in the small frame "Xiaojia" of Chen Taijiquan.

This school is in the tradition of Chen Xin (16th generation of the Chen clan) and his brothers. Chen Xin owes the world the most important classic of Taijiquan, which is available since last year in German translation:

 "Kommentare zu den Graphischen Erläuterungen zum Taijiquan des Chen-Clans"

The masters of our lineage are Chen Peishan and his sister Chen Peiju, who are direct descendants of Chen Wangqian (the 9th generation of the Chen clan), who was the younger brother of Chen Wangting, who is currently the founder of Chen Taijiquan.


The daily routine will be as follows: 

Every morning we begin our training with a Qi Gong unit to then go to the basic training in Chan Si Jin (the unwinding of the silk thread), then we dedicate our training time to the Sizheng Taijiquan form.

The lunch break can be spent as you wish.

In the afternoon we will continue training with the traditional Xiaojia Yilu. We will conclude the training day with a Qi Gong unit.

Please bring your swords to the camp, if possible we will try to practice the sizheng sword form with those who have already learned it.


Evening programme:

We leave the design of the evenings to you. Paderborn, Detmold, Teutoburg Forest with all the sights. But also the opportunity to chat and exchange ideas should of course not be neglected.

We would like to spend the Saturday evening with you at a dinner together. We appreciate your interest and your participation.


In order for us to plan better, we ask for your binding registration for the camp and the dinner until the 30th of April 2018 at the latest. Anyone registering until March 31st will also benefit from the early bird discount (see below).
