Video of Master Chen Xiao Xing

Here is some video of Master Chen Xiao Xing taken back in 2007. I thought it would be nice to start off this New Year with some Chen Style Taijiquan. In the following video of Master Chen Xiao Xing 陳小星 are from the "Cannon Fist" or "Er Lu" Chen Style Taiji form and were recorded in Chicago at a wonderful seminar. There are some nice fajin clips in this short video and some clips shown in slow and extra slow motion as well. Chen Xiao Xing was born in 1952, 3rd son of Chen Zhao Xu and brother of Chen Xiao Wang.

Here is the YouTube link for those of you that enjoy watching videos there.

I really enjoyed shooting this back then and now putting this video together this week. I hope that showng Master Chen Xiao Xing doing some of the fajin (to issue or discharge power explosively) of "Cannon fist" in this video at various speeds of slow motion and at normal speed is helpful and enjoyable for you as well. It's pretty rare to be able to shoot video while a seminar is "in progress" and I'm happy to be able to share these clips here with all of you.

Let me know what you think of this video of Master Chen Xiao Xing in the comment area. There are more internal martial arts videos in the works as I am always weeding back through footage I have taken over the years. Also more articles and videos on Wujifa in the works as well.

Happy New Year everyone!


  1. Wow, dude... Cool video! It's amazing to think about all the great people you've trained with and seen over the years. You know, I've seen a lot of videos of CXW doing fajin, and it's cool to see his brother do some too, because at first, my brain was like "what?" since it looked different. He definitely has it though, so I'm going to have to keep looking and watching until it starts to make sense too, I have a feeling that will help me see what part of it is really the fajin part, and separate that from the person who's doing it. Maybe then, and with the practice of Wujifa exercises, I can start to experience what fajin is like for me!

  2. Great video (especially like the artistic editing, ex: at the end)and also a great response from Dan! How easy it is for me to forget that this is a personal journey and everybody/ever body is different...finding how these principles apply to oneself is such a great thing!

  3. The important think to note is that they are doing, not talking.

  4. I was at this seminar and had the RARE opportunity to be shown the meaning of Peng by Victor (by the tacit approval of Grandmaster Chen Xiaoxing).

    It was a life changing episode and I still cant believe the force emitted!

    Grandmaster Chen Xiaoxing is an excellent teacher
