Chen's Second Lu

Mark's note: I know very little about this list, even to the point of whether it is actually 'chen' style or something altogether different, so please feel free to enlighten me if you have any information.

The entire content has been lifted from James Marshall's webpages, who in turn has copied his lists from other sources. These sources are quoted in italics first, and then his notes are included as they may be of interest.

Copied from The Dao of Taijiquan, Way to Rejuvenation by Jou, Tsung Hwa, published by Tai Chi Foundation.

This form has more complicated movements, more firmness, and less softness. Elbow, split, pull down, and shoulder strike (the four corners) are emphasized, ward off, roll back, press, and push (the four directions) are secondary; this is the opposite of the first lu. Fast action is important and in this form the hands lead the body. For an attack to have real fajing the whole body must act as a single unit and the energy must be internal; external, physical force should not be used.
