陳垚傳

[22] CHEN YAO

陳垚仲甡長子十九入武庠每年一萬遍拳二十年不懈志故其功夫之純一時無兩軀幹短小不知者皆不信其能武嘗與縣衙護勇鬥連擊六七人踣地餘皆畏却遁去從父與洪楊軍戰未嘗敗北

Chen Yao, the eldest son of Zhongshen, passed the county-level military examinations at the age of nineteen. He practiced the boxing set ten thousand times in a year, and thus after twenty years of ceaseless determination, his skill was pure and he was unrivaled in his day. His body was short and small, and so all of those who did not know him did not believe he had any martial prowess. Once he valiantly fought to defend a county government office, sending a flurry of strikes against a half dozen assailants, knocking them to the ground, the rest of them running away. He went with his father into the army to battle against the Taiping forces and was never defeated. https://brennantranslation.wordpress.com/2017/08/31/taiji-boxing-according-to-chen-ziming/
