Event description

Description

This year's focus will be on Gettin’ the TRUE measure of it all as this has been the most requested across the classes; understanding correct form movement to truly apply form and function. We will work on not just the shape of the postures but the underlying function. We will look at the tai chi classics and apply them to whole body movement, intrinsic strength, kinetic and potential energy, spatial awareness, agility, and mindfulness. The weekend is open to all levels and will give everyone a chance to deepen their knowledge and love for the art of tai chi chuan

Saturday 5th - will focus on Chi-Kung (qigong) and Tai Chi structure, or as my wife likes to call it “Hands, knees and boomps-a-daisy”.

We will look at the natural elastic strength of muscles and tendons when in correct alignment. A stretching muscle is up to 10 times stronger than a contracting muscle. By applying the intrinsic strength of relaxed compression all strain is released from the body and able to be directed where needed. Contraction causes stresses in your body and restricts natural flow.

The day will focus on developing natural flow and harnessing natural elastic energy both for self-defence (martial) and self-defence (life balance).

Sunday 6th - Will be Weapons Day. I will be teaching tai chi staff form and applications for balance and footwork. The form is relatively simple to learn and was taught to me by Grand-Master Tan Soew Theng in Malaysia.

DVD’s will be available at £20 and staffs (by order) at £15. Staffs are rattan and slightly flexible rather than stiff hardwood Bo staff.
