Chen Yan Xi , Chen Fake’s father , was the Chen family Taijiquan’s 16 Generation patriarch . Chen Yan Xi was the Chief bodyguard for Du Yen, a powerful official . Chen Yan Xi was also Du Yen ‘s son Du Yu Ze’s Teacher. This form is representative of the Chen Family Lao JIa Yi Lu Form before it was modified by Chen Fake. This form actually is in the same postural sequence as the Yang family Taijiquan.

This is the form that BP Chan taught .

    Excellent!!! 🙂
    Was this form taught by BP Chan? How he named it?
    This seems to be the Old Chen style and is show much more resemblance with the Yang style than the Today/New Chen style.
    IMHO this “Old Chen style” and the “original” “Old Yang style” should be very similar. This video shows the “link” between them.

      Master Du was trained by Chen Fake’s father . This is the “real” old Chen form according to my understanding .It is the same sequence as the Yang , Wu, Hao, Sun etc forms. It is my personal belief that Chen Fake changed it to hide the relationship with the Yang family. Lu Yun Qiao said that ” this is the only Chen form worth learning” . i attached Chen Xin’s book in a 700+ page PDF that is available on this site. The sequence is explained in detail with regard to why it is in a specific order. There are even songs for the postures . i carried this book with me for 18 years and could find no one to translate as it is in an archaic style . Enjoy , i hope that it is helpful !
