    I STARTED TAKING TAI CHI,CHEN STYLE/ SILK REELING QI GONG AFTER KNEE REPLACEMENT . READING OTHER THREAD OF MARTIAL ARTS I FIND IT HARD TO BELIEVE ANYONE WHO HAS SUCH SURGERY WOULD FOLLOW A HARD STYLE.I MESSED UP BOTH KNEES REQUIRING REPLACEMENT AND THERE IS NO WAY.... TO MY QUESTION ,IF ANYONE COULD DIRECT ME , ARE THERE DIFFERENT STYLES OF CHEN STYLE TAI CHI? GOING YOU TUBE I LOOK FOR CHEN SHORT FORM AND THERE SEEM TO BE A MULTIPLE VARIETY OFF " SHORT FORM" CALLED CHEN. 8,16,24 THEY ALL SEEM DIFFERENT.. HAVE FOUND AN INSTRUCTOR BUT HAVE NOT ASKED HER YET

    Not sure what you are finding in 8, 12 and 24 that is Chen. Chen taijiquan that comes from the Chen family is all on style but there are various forms
    Loajia Erlu Laojia Yilu, XInjia Yilu and XInjia Erlu and there are a few others, but they all come from the Chen family. There are also competition forms that come from the Chines government.

    There are off shoot from Chen but they are not generally called Chen style.

    English as second language, I'd wager. It takes a while for non-Anglophones to internalize the difference in meaning between upper and lower case. Then again, my aged Auntie uses caps lock rather recklessly, and she's quite nice.

    Ah, thanks for the clarification. In case you didn't know, using all caps in a written communication is generally received as shouting. If you don't care how your communication is received by an audience, then why communicate at all?

    By the way, having English as a second language isn't an insult. As a matter of fact, it's generally a good idea to be able to speak and/or write in more than one language.
