Product Description

Chen Style Lao Jia Er Lu popularly known as Cannon Fist, is usually studied at the advanced level.  It is a vigorous empty-hand routine, punctuated throughout with fajing, the relaxed, explosive release of energy typical of the Chen Style.

Comprised of forty-three techniques, Cannon Fist trains the Chen Taiji boxer to issue devastating force and technique in a relaxed and coordinated manner.  The form also develops chansijing or ""silk reeling energy"" which is critical to the execution of Chen Taijiquan forms.  Cannon Fist is a rare example of the explosive power of Chen Style Taijiquan that emphasizes on speed and power delivered with the style's unique requirements.

About the Actor

Master Ren Guangyi is a 12th generation Chen Style Taijiquan master and a leading disciple of Grandmaster Chen Xiaowang. He has risen to become one of Americas foremost authorities on Taijiquan. With the new millennium, Master Ren has brought the art of Taijiquan to a higher profile in the public eye. He performed Taijiquan on stage all over the world, alongside his famous student, veteran rocker Lou Reed. Reed asked Master Ren to join him on his world tour, which played over 150 shows in over 20 countries, including Carnegie Hall and the Olympics. Rens reputation has attracted several celebrity students, including the former C.E.O. of A.O.L. Jon Miller, music promoter Tony Visconti, and Hugh Jackman.

In 1991, Master Ren first immigrated to the United States. He quickly established himself as a major force in the taiji world by winning tournaments all across the country. He soon graced on the cover of many martial arts magazines, including three covers of Kung Fu Tai Chi magazine and a mention for his work with Lou Reed in Rolling Stone. In 1998, he returned to China to capture the coveted heavyweight title for pushing hands at the International Taijiquan Competition in Wenxian in Henan Province. Since then, Master Ren has founded the International Chen Style Taijiquan Association. He has produced several highly regarded instructional books and videos on Taijiquan. Master Ren continues to push the art of Taiji forward in America with his pioneering work and his innovative approach.

There were 3 different views of each technique. The slow motion view of the form was extremely helpful. This helped visually understand different angles. Video quality needs improvement. Very good learning tool to accompany seminars or lessons learned in class.
