Chen Fake or Ch'en Fa-k'e (1887–1957) was a Chinese taijiquan teacher. Born and raised in Chen Family Village (Chenjiagou, 陳家溝) in Henan province, he was the 17th generation lineage holder of Chen-style taijiquan. His great-grandfather was the famous Taijiquan grandmaster Chen Changxing. His grandsons include Grandmaster Chen Xiaowang (the 19th generation standard-bearer for Chen family Taiji) and Grandmaster Chen Xiaoxing (head of Chen family Taiji instruction in Chenjiagou).
Chen Fake made Chen-style taijiquan a known and distinct entity when he went to Beijing in 1928 and opened the Zhongzhou Institute, which taught taijiquan.
