Pao Chui or Cannon Fist is the second Chen taiji open hand form. Its lineage is from Chen Zhao Kui, son of the famous Chen taiji master Chen Fake. This form balances the slowness, softness, and stability of the first form with swiftness, hardness, jumping, and stomping. The two together emphasize the yin and yang of softness and hardness of Chen taijiquan complementing each other. The form repetition segments are divided into six groupings in section one and ten in section two. The individual sections are performed at normal practice speed at the beginning and end. The volume concludes with both sections one and two performed a normal practice speed with movement names.
