Chen Yu method - "Gong fu frame"

Chen Yu
Born 5/23/1962, in Chen Jia Gou Wen County, Henan province, currently resides in Zhuozhou, after living most of his life in Beijing, China.
He is 17th generation Chen Taijiquan teacher, Chen FaKe’s grandson and 18th generation teacher Chen ZhaoKui’s only son. At 7 years of age he began to follow his fathers teaching seriously training taijiquan and has spent his life developing students of skill in real functional, martial Taijiquan, preserving the family heritage in it's truest form.
Unlike most of the modern lines of Chen Taijiquan, Chen Yu's teaching method at the time of teaching Marin Spivack, retained the full traditional martial curriculum and body method passed on by Chen Zhaokui.

Marin Spivack
Master level practitioner, teacher and 20th generation lineage holder in Chen Family Taijiquan.  He preserves and develops the 'gongfu' system of Chen Zhaokui and his father Chen Fa-Ke via the teachings of his only son Chen Yu.
He is also a former student of 'Gene' Chen Jinhong and the very skilled and famous Feng Zhiqiang.
Marin's level of development and expertise is a rare thing indeed, in the modern climate of sport oriented Taijiquan and easy 'commercial grade' Taijiquan for the masses.
His highly refined art is powerful, sophisticated and functional, and stands far above what is commonly taught. Marin is passionate about preserving the traditional but highly difficult 'gongfu' methods and does not 'water down' his teachings for commercial concerns.
Below is a demonstration of some aspects of his practice...
