You Can’t Do Tai Chi or Bagua Without Silk-Reeling

Chan Si Jin — Silk-Reeling Energy — is a unique feature of the internal arts of Chinese Kung-Fu, especially important in Tai Chi Chuan (Taijiquan) and Baguazhang.

Unfortunately, silk-reeling energy has vanished in much of the Tai Chi instruction around the world.

This DVD includes more than 2 1/2 hours of detailed instruction from Ken Gullette, an internal martial arts instructor who has learned silk-reeling from members of the Chen family and their students/disciples.

From this DVD, you will learn:

  • 19 important silk-reeling exercises to help infuse your movements with the spiraling of Chan Si Jin
  • Detailed instruction on internal body mechanics and how to bring them together in a “connected” way that allows internal strength to flow through the body
  • You will learn as Ken coaches a student through the exercises and body mechanics, correcting his mistakes
  • Pole-shaking exercises that help you learn fajin — the explosive energy that happens when you put all the body mechanics and silk-reeling together and, as Chen Xiaowang says, “Put on the gas!”

Ken Gullette is known for putting instruction on video that goes deeper than most instructors — in plain language that makes abstract concepts easy to understand.

There is nothing mystical about silk-reeling energy. It is a physical skill that anyone can practice and develop. After all, kung-fu is a skill developed through years of practice. Through these DVDs, you’ll practice along with Sifu Gullette and you’ll understand how to do the spiraling movement that is required to put the “iron” in Tai Chi, which is known as “iron wrapped in cotton.”

Ken Gullette’s DVDs are popular with internal artists worldwide. There is a money back guarantee if you are not satisfied with the DVD for any reason. This DVD set will change the way you practice the internal arts. FREE SHIPPING anywhere in the world.
