Chen Village

There are 3,000 residents in Chen village. 2,500 practice Tai chi chuan. In China it is known simply as Taiji village.When you first arrive at Chen village, you are struck by how unremarkable it is. Set in remote rural countryside it suffered badly during the cultural revolution and today it is populated mostly by farmworkers. Yet as the birthplace of Tai Chi Chuan it is one of the most significant locations in Martial Arts. The Chen family, standard bearers of the Chen style for four hundred years, continue to teach Tai Chi Chuan at the Tai chi school in the center of the village.
