Master Chen Xiao Wang

2 juin 2008

Master Chen Xiao Wang was born in 1945 in the village known as the origin of tai-chi chuan, Chenjiagou in the Henan province of China. He is the grandson of the famous Chen school tai-chi chuan grand master, Master Chen Fa Ke, but he never studied the family art with the latter. His father, Master Chen Zhao Xu was the oldest son of Master Chen Fa Ke. Because of this, today Chen Xiao Wang is considered his heir representing the 19th generation of the Chen school of tai-chi chuan.

He was also crowned tai-chi chuan champion at the first international wushu championship held in Xian in 1985.
