Push Hands in the Chen Village

This is a clip of Chen Ziqiang practicing push hands with students in the Chen Village, birthplace of tai chi.

Chen Ziqiang is a young master who is the son of Chen Xiaoxing, head of tai chi training in the Chen Village and younger brother of Chen Xiaowang. 

Chen Ziqiang is the push hands trainer. He's been trying to come to the U.S. to give workshops but has had some visa problems. Let's hope he can come soon.

Also talking on this clip is Chen Bing, another great young master from the Chen family.

If you think tai chi is for health and meditation, and push hands is a sensitivity exercise, this clip should show you what the people who created tai chi can do. The Chens don't mess around. This is a martial art.
