Chen Tai Chi Perth Online – Day 002

In this 2nd Chen Tai Chi Video that went LIVE on 5th Sept (Perth time GMT +8), I shared the Qigong exercise, silk reeling exercises and the Laojia YiLu Movement #1, Jin Gang Dao Dui. I always find that beginners find it challenging to Open and Close the Kua or the Hip joints. I will cover this in on our Day 005 when I did the Tai Chi Butt Lift.
