Spiral Taiji promotes the original family martial art of the Chen family, as practised in Chenjiagou, Henan, China. The main school in the village, headed by Chen Xiaoxing, has two branch schools in England: one in Warrington, where Davidine Sim and David Gaffney teach and one in London, where Liu Quanjun teaches. Both are highly recommended for learning taijiquan. Spiral Taiji is affiliated to Chenjiagou GB, the school in Warrington.
