In the early 1800’s, the founder of Tai Chi Yang style, Yang, Luchan (楊露禪), went from Hebei province to the Chen family village in Henan province to study Tai Chi Chuan with Chen, Changxing (陳長興). It is well-known that he was a servant in the household for three years, only allowed to study basic stances (盤單架), sequences, fighting set, pushing hands and power manifestation (發功). After three years, when Chen had seen for certain that Yang Luchan would work hard without complaint and had natural talent, he allowed Yang to stay another three years and fully reach the essence of Chen style Tai Chi Chuan. He returned to Hebei, and participated in a national competition which took place in Beijing. He defeated all of the experts in the country, thereby obtaining his reputation as “Yang, the invincible.”
