Step by step to teach you Chen Sytle TaiChi 18 forms with animation. In general, Chen Style is more advanced TaiChi and hard to learn for the beginner. However, Chen Style 18 is the good entry level forms, and relatively easier. Gentle advice, do play with Yang Style (basic 24) first. Once you have built up the basis from Yang Style, and your body (especially knees) is strong enough, start to learn Chen style. Chen style requires you have strong knees :) Three 3 years after I have played Yang Style, my father started to teach me Chen Style.
In this program, my father demonstrates how to play Chen Style TaiChi 18. He is 69 years old， and has played TaiChi for about 20 years. Playing TaiChi is one of his secrets to be healthy. He has a lot of teaching experience in China, Australia and Singapore. I admire him and create a web site for him (http://taichisingapore.alotspace.com/index.html). I learned TaiChi from him also. My personal advice is to keep up, and you will feel the benefit TaiChi brings to you. There is an old chinese saying "拳打千遍，其意自现" which means "You will know what is TaiChi after you have practised about one thousand times".
This application is meant to help you to play Chen Style TaiChi18 (which is the basic of TaiChi). Although there are plenty of resource in the internet, I always feel it is more effective to refer to the movement in the handphone on the real time basis. You can follow animation in slow motion and learn the detailed step below. It is just starting of my TaiChi series. Please support me if you feel it is useful for you. I will continue to create new series of TaiChi.
这个应用记录了我父亲教研陈氏太极拳18式。 父亲已经69岁了，练习太极拳身体得益很多。 父亲教学太极拳近二十年了，对理论和实践都所积累，很有经验。一身功夫，不记录下来，真是可惜。 借这个平台，制作了这个小应用，也是对自己学习太极拳有所帮助，希望对太极拳有兴趣的朋友有所帮助！ 俗话说，“拳打千遍，其意自现“， 这个应用可以帮你学习太极拳，但真正打好，还是要自己勤练。 包括如何调理呼吸，用力自如，都会在实践中体会到。 谢谢支持!
