Tired of this Tai Chi LIE

A man had made his bones learning a powerful martial method, from a renowned martial artist in Chenjiagou. The man who taught him was called Chén Chángxīng and the combat art he taught did not have a formal name.

It went by many names, some called it, “Soft Boxing,” and others sometimes called it, “Cotton Boxing”. Nonetheless, Chén Chángxīng’s student travelled to Beijing and here he made a name for himself. Defeating many, he ended being hired by nobles in the imperial family at the time.

The Tai Chi lie that it is only health, is tale that has been brewing since the dawn of the 20th century. Rightfully so, due to changes in society back then, it was one of the methods to sell it to the public or the elite in the beginning. But at the same time due to the secretive traditions of traditional martial arts. Its martial aspects or the whole art was reserved t disciples. Sometimes worse, secrets died with masters.

However, now days a lot of these so called “secrets” are available and better there are guides-teachers willing to guide willing practitioners on the path.
