GRANDMASTER

CHEN, XIAOXING


Chen Xiaoxing is known as Taiji Miao Shou (“highly skilled person”) of the Chen family 19th generation. From 1979-1985 he won seven first-prize titles in national and provincial martial arts tournaments in Taiji push hands and weapons. Although highly skilled and recognized as a great master, he is very modest and approachable, even choosing to live in the school amongst the students.

Chen Xiaoxing began his training at an early age under his uncles Chen Zhaopei and Chen Zhaokui. Like his brother, he defeated many high level martial arts experts with taiji gongfu. He later continued his training under the guidance of his older brother, Chen Xiaowang. He upholds the tradition of direct transmission and is responsible for training the current generation of masters from Chenjiagou.

Chen Xiaoxing is known to be generous in sharing his knowledge as he directly oversees the training of local and foreign students. Since 1983 he has been teaching students at the Chen Jia Gou Taiji school as well as students in Shan Dong, Hu Bei, Zhe Jiang, Guang Dong and Liao Ning. From 1985 to date, he has been invited to teach traditional Chen family Taiji in Russia, Japan, South Korea, USA, Europe and South America as well as teaching students from all over the world who have come to China seeking his expert instruction. He has received groups of students wanting to learn martial arts as well as many tourists. In 1996 he was presented with a special award by the Henan Martial Arts Association for his contribution to the success of students in the provincial and international teams.
