Chen Style vs. Wu Style

Left: Chen Style's "Six Sealing and Four Closing"
Right: Wu Style's "Cloud Hands" (Fast Set)

These two applications present a clear contrast of the styles. Chen Style Taijiquan uses Chan Su Jing (Silk Cocoon Reeling Energy) to both intercept and redirect the opponent’s aggression, while Wu Style's Fast Set uses Li Jing (Twisting Energy) to mimic a centrifuge, in order to neutralize the opponent’s force and compromise their central equilibrium. Both styles engage the opponent’s aggression with lightness and sensitivity, maintain contact, and exploit weaknesses in the opponent’s situation.

Comprehensive Chi Kung

Chi Kung, of the Wu Style written by Gerald A. Sharp and Patricia Kessler Since producing the video series in 2006, we have had several requests to provide more information on the rare Wu Style Tai Chi Chi Kung. Now for the first time in print in any language, this comprehensive practice is available in book form. The Chi Kung is organized in two series: The Eight Methods and the Five Elements both of which are inter-related, yet address various aspects of chi flow and connective tissue enhancement. With over 300 illustrations, it is published in a horizontal format with a wire binding, in order to make it easy to stand up; much like an easel for easy reference during practice. Also check out our Chi Kung, of the Wu Style Video Series for more information on this profound and highly useful Chi Kung practice, as well as a Special joining both the book and the video series.
