Workshop 1+2 : Shaolin Neijin Yizhichan

Shaolin Neijin Yizhichan stems from the buddhist tradition of the southern Shaolin temple and is known as the royal road of Qigong in China. The method is one of the most effective systems to develop inner strength (neijin). Furthermore, the state of one's own health is restored and self healing processes are activated. The exercise of the Shaolin Neijin Yizhichan method leads to a high accumulation of vital energy (qi). Actually the practitioners are able to control the flow and the radiation of qi. For that reason, the method is an important basis for many eastern martial arts such as Kung Fu or Tai Chi. By combining the practical exercises of Shaolin Neijin Yizhichan with studies of traditional Chinese medicine, the treatment of sick or ill people is also possible.

workshop 1+2 : Living qigong

qigong is a pleasure and plays with body and energies. With very simple but efficient exercises for health we travel physically and mentally through our body and especially through the spine; this will allow us the become aware of our profound human nature. Another particularity of it is the harmonisation of our 3 Dan Tien.

Workshop 1 + 2 : Peng-jin and Lü-jin: The principle energies in Tai Chi Chuan

In this workshop we will analyse and practice Peng and Lü in the context of Tui Shou and also see how this practice can support both solo form practice and fighting applications. Questions to be answered during the workshop are: What is the essence of each energy? How are the two energies complementary and how can we feel this in physical reality? How can we find the two energies in each technique and form movement? And - if we have time - how do Peng-jin and Lü-jin relate to the other Tai Chi Chuan energies?

Workshop 1 + 2 : Push hands applications for competition

The difference of push hands training for competition from regular push hands could be described as: no more "IF" and no more "BUT".Competition starts at the very moment where two people meet with the intention to get each other off balance (free push hands). In this workshop we will show which techniques are succesful against a partner who uses all of his energy to get you out of balance.

This is a unique project in Europe presented in preview by the Master Yuan Zumou at the National Meeting of Lodi (I). Visit the site www.neijia-taijiquan.info and write to me!

Some thoughts to share

The international meeting Tai Cho Tcho is a unique and important event. I am proud to be part of it. The event brings the possibility of practicing together, there will be a very rich program, exercises of the thousand-year-old Chinese culture which have the goal to improve our body. Taiji Quan is an excellent method of psychophysical training adapted to everyone, without age limits. The exercises of Qi Gong focus on improving the circulation of energy in the body, while Tui Shou is an excellent method to improve the sensitivity, balance, the movement of the basin, adherence and the yin-yang. Guide each movement with an increased attention but carry out the exercises with the least possible effort.
