Wang HaiJunWang HaiJun

Wang HaiJun is an indoor disciple of Grandmaster Chen ZhengLei and an official 12th generation lineage holder of Chen Style TaiJi.He is a four time national champion of China in Push Hands. For three consecutive years before retiring from competition, he was Overall Champion which meant that he had to win the championship in Forms, Sword, and Push Hands. In many years, there is no Overall Champion because of the disfficulty in winning all three categories! Since retiring from competition, he has trained many students that have achieved a high level of skill (both Chinese and non-Chinese) with over thirty winning gold medals and ten winning medals in national push hands competition!

Born in January of 1972 in the city of ZhengZhou in Henan Province, Wang HaiJun was nine when he first met Chen ZhengLei. In order for him to continue his taiji studies more extensively, his father arranged for him to move to Chen Village at the age of 11 to live with Chen ZhengLei and study with him. Other than Chen ZhengLei's own children, no other student has had this opportunity. He became the first non-Chen-family student in modern times to be traditionally trained at Chen Village.

When he was just 16, Chen ZhengLei invited him to travel with him to help teach and demonstrate his skill. He also accompanied Chen ZhengLei and Chen XiaoWang when they first began traveling outside of Chen Village to teach silk-reeling exrecises.

Since 2000, Wang HaiJun has lived in England. His ability to speak english makes him one of the most appoachable, high level Chen teachers available. In addition, his "hands on" teaching method, his generous willingness to share the principlas of tai chi, and his high level of skill make him one of the top Chen coaches you will ever train with. The Jing Ying Institute of Kung Fu and Tai Chi is very fortunate to be one of the few schools to have had him visiting regularly for over a decade to share his knowledge with our students.

Chen Style Tai Chi is considered the source of the major styles of Tai Chi (TaiJi). The founders of both Yang Style and Wu style trained at the Chen Village, then left and opened their art to the public. While those styles spread and became popular, Chen style continued to be taught only in Chen village and was not as well known. Now the secret is out, and Chen TaiJi is gaining in popularity as people discover the silk reeling exercises and coiling movements of the original style of TaiJi.
