Volume I: Silk Reeling Exercises

The Feng Zhiqiang video series is devoted to the forms and exercises of Chen-style Taijiquan as taught by Feng Zhiqiang, 18th generation master of Chen-style Taijiquan. This video on silk-reeling is the first tape in this series. Other videos under consideration include Huanyuan Qigong and the short- (i.e., 24-, 48-posture and 24 cannon) and long (i.e., 83-/Yilu and 71-posture/Erlu/Cannon fist) forms that constitute this style.

Silk-reeling exercises consist of a series of spiral movements used to develop the basic strengths and coordination of Taijiquan. This set of exercises will also open up and exercise the 18 major joints of the body (in sequence from the head to the ankles). The complete set of silk-reeling exercises in 35 movements is presented in this video tape by Master Zhang Xue Xin. Some applications are also demonstrated in the last part of this tape.

Volume II: Hun Yuan Qigong

This video on Hun Yuan Qigong is the second tape in this series.

Hun Yuan Qigong exercises mix the prenatel and postnatel qi and cultivates the 3 treasures: jing, the life essence; qi, the vital energy, and shen, the spirit or awareness. These exercises also help bring in the yang energy from the heaven above and yin energy from the earth below to combine with the human vital energy.

The cultivation of these energies within the body can improve the health and martial abilities of the practitioner. The external movements throughout the exercises are used to guide the yi (intent) of the internal energy.

This videotape tape consists of two parts:

Part 1: Twenty five movements of Hun Yuan Qigong exercises as demonstrated by Master Zhang.
Part 2: Twenty four posture Hun Yuan Taiji form demonstrated by Master Zhang and several of his students.
