According to Chen Village family history, Chen Bu was a skilled martial artist who started the martial arts tradition who moved from Shanxi to Wen County Henan Province in 1374. The new area was originally known as Chang Yang Cun or Sunshine village and grew to include a large number of Chen descendants. Because of the three deep ravines (Gou) beside the village it came to be known as Chen Jia Gou or Chen Family creek/brook. For generations onwards, the Chen Village was known for their martial arts.
The special nature of Tai Chi Chuan practice was attributed to the ninth generation Chen Village leader, Chen Wangting 1580–1660). He added the principles of Yin-Yang theory the universal principle of complementary opposites), the techniques of Daoyin (leading and guiding energy), Tui na (expelling and drawing energy), the Chinese medical theory of energy and Chinese medical theory of the meridians.
