Chen Fa Ke, the famous master who brought Chen Style to Beijing in the middle of the twentieth century, was a student of this “Old” and “Large” Frame. TheChen lao jia(old frame; 老架) consists of two forms yi lu (1st routine) and er lu (2nd routine) It was taught privately in Chen Village from the time of Chen ChangXing—the 14th generation creator of these routines.
