Chen Village Girls Practicing Chen Taiji Straight Sword Form

One of my former Taiji teachers, Mark Wasson, visited the Chen Village many times to train with members of the Chen family.

On one visit, he took some great video of the village, the Chen family, and their students.

This short video shows young girls practicing the Chen Taiji Straight Sword form as Chen Xiaoxing watches.

Mark passed away a year or so ago. He took several Americans to Chen Village, introducing them to the Chen family. I have not been to the Chen Village, but through Mark, I met and trained with Chen Xiaoxing when he visited the United States. In 2006, I sponsored Chen Xiaoxing's visa so he could come to the US for a series of workshops.
