Chen style Taijiquan is an ancient form of martial arts with a history of several hundred years. It is characterized by its spiral like twisting and turning of the body while simultaneously extending and contracting the limbs. A Taijiquan practitioner can strike with any part of his body which has come into contact with his opponent. Furthermore, once a Taijiquan practitioner begins to move he is on the path of a circle. We can say that every movement is a Taiji circle.
