cxw az1Grandmaster Chen Xiaowang was born in 1945 in Chenjiagou, Henan Province, China, and is the 19th Generation “gatekeeper” of Chen Family's Taijiquan. From an early age, he was aware of the great heritage of which he is a part. He is a direct descendent of Chen Wangting, the creator of Taijiquan and is the grandson of Chen Fa-ke, renowned as the greatest Taijiquan master at the beginning of the 20th Century. He first trained under his father, Chen Zhaoxu, and subsequently from his uncles, Chen Zhaopi and Chen Zhaokui. From his early training and to the present day, he continues his practice and study of Taijiquan.

As a practitioner of Taijiquan, he has distinguished himself in martial arts tournaments throughout China, including winning the title of All China Grand Champion three times in 1980, 1981, and 1983. He was also the Grand Champion at the First International Wushu Championship in Xian in 1985. He served as the sole deputy elected from Taijiquan circles to the Chinese National People’s Assembly. In 1988, the Chinese Government recognized him as a “Living National Treasure.”

As a teacher and head of the Chen Xiaowang World Taijiquan Association, he is equally distinguished in his skills to inform and cultivate the talents of tens of thousands of students interested in learning his family art. He is also tireless in his efforts in cultivating teachers on many continents to help spread high quality Taijiquan throughout the world, traveling nine months out of the year to conduct seminars in Europe, USA, South America, and Asia. Simultaneously, he continues to write books about the Chen Family Taijiquan and works to renovate the village, the birthplace of Taijiquan. As a talented calligrapher, he supports the renovation effort through the sale of his calligraphy.
