Workshop 1+2: Tai Chi Eyebrow Staff – Partner Play

Scott Chaplowe

Scott Chaplowe has been practicing and teaching internal martial arts for over 22 years. Tai chi is his primary focus, including Yangjia Michuan form, eyebrow staff, and pushing hands. This is complemented with a background in other martial arts, yoga, and Chinese acupressure - in short, a mixed bag.

Primary teachers include Serge Dreyer (taichi form, staff and pushing), Lauren Smith (pushing), Veera VassantaChart (staff), Mark Stewart (Jeet Kune Do), and Robert Byner (Ryu-Te). Scott has taught tai chi in Asia (Taiwan, Thailand, and Sri Lanka), the United States and Europe. He currently resides in Geneva. Contact information: +41 79 511 5197; sgchaplowe@yahoo.com

Workshop 1+2: Tai Chi Eyebrow Staff – Partner Play

This workshop will introduce staff movements for two people, stressing tai chi principles through work with a partner. Like the choreographed movements of “da lu” we will play with listening to and responding to another person’s movement with a staff.

The workshop will focus on body alignment, footwork, opening and closing distance.

Movements are sequenced to emphasize physics and flow rather than brute strength; redirecting and neutralizing force with the staff.

The workshop is suitable for both beginners and more advanced practitioners of all styles. Please bring a smooth staff of eyebrow height, and a fun, curious, open attitude.

 

Fabian Cretton (CH)
Workshops 1 + 2: classics revisited (simple but profound influence on the way to practice)

Fabian Cretton

Tai Ji Quan is often a never ending search. After some years of practice in Valais (CH), fascinated by the different aspects (philosophy, health and martial practice), I went to China full of questions. There I met Yang Cheng Long, an unknown master whose gong-fu represents for me a certain quintessence of the practice. At 60, he is very healthy, has a profound understanding of the different aspects of the ancient texts, and is a redoubtable martial artist.

Since 18 years I cultivate the "beginner's mind" for each aspect, following workshops around the world (e.g. chinese medecine, tuishou), exchanging with different martial arts (e.g. judo, wing-chun, box, krav-maga), and drawing links between ancient principles and recent scientific discoveries.

TuiShou - competition:

  • CTND 2013 (Stuttgart) gold for fixed step, silver for moving steps
  • CTND 2012 (Stuttgart) 3rd place for fixed and moving steps

Contact : fabiancretton@gmail.com

Workshops 1 + 2: classics revisited (simple but profound influence on the way to practice)

I propose to bring some light on the classics as the "taijiquan lun" attributed to Zhang San Feng, according to Yang Cheng Long’s teaching. Some of the aspects might be, still nowadays, to seldom put into practice. Starting from the Chinese text, we will see what it can imply in a taiji form (any style) or for two people’s practice, and then see the scientific explanation of those simple ideas to highlight their deepness and importance.

The workshop could interest beginners as well as advanced practitioners, no matter the style, no matter the main interest (philosophy, health and martial practice).

 

Harald Hasenöhrl (D)

He has worked in China, Germany and Austria with the professors Sui QingBo, Du Hong, Xuer MaiJin, He Lin and Yu Chang Fu.

Workshop 1: XingYiQuan

Xing Yi Quan is one of the internal martial arts in China. This martial art provides an effective self-defense, strengthens the mobility, the power, the speed, health, self-confidence and promotes concentration, attention, vigilance.

The Xing Yi Quan (Xing = movement, form • Yi = attention, mind, willingness • Quan = fistfight) movements are coordinated, powerful, clear, straight and flexible.

Xing Yi Quan consists of five basic movements from the 5 elements (Wu Xing), and also set sequences drawn from animals movements. The aim is to define movements sequences based on the five fist techniques and carry on its principles. Depending on the style of ten or twelve animal forms will be practiced.

Unlike many other animals forms, Xing Yi Quan does not value the imitation of external movement of the animal, but much more emphasis on the internal nature (spirit) of the animal in which movement is flowing.

  • Five fundamental movements and applications of Xing Yi Quan
  • Basic exercises of 12 animals including tiger, snake, bear, monkey and eagle for the strengthening and flexibility of the body as well as application techniques for defense and attack.

Workshop 2: WuBuQuan

The Wubu Quan is the foundation of all martial arts. It is a small but highly effective form of exercise. The Wubu Quan includes 5 basic elements such as Mabu Gongbu, Dulibu, Xubu, Pubu, found in all martial arts including Tai Chi, as a basis for body alignment.

Wubu Quan combines power (Li), attention (Yi), energy (chi) and train flexibility, balance and distribution of energy.

  • WuBuQuan - Five basic positions in a small form
  • Simple applications of self-defense

 

Daan Hengst (Hollande)
Workshop 1 + 2 : The use of Taiji principles in daily activities or sports

Daan Hengst

Daan Hengst (born in1940, Indonesia) started his martial arts training since 1964 with Western Boxing that gave him the opportunity to learn how to deal with aggressiveness and stay calm in difficult situations.

Later ( in 1971 ) in order to extend his knowledge, Chinese boxing so called “Gong Fu” came across his path with different accents in training and using the body. The light-footed movements from western boxing for instance, got changed in more rooted stands.

Pencak Silat , the Indonesian martial art ( practised since 1980) was again different from the styles described above.

After years of training with different teachers and still training, on a regular basis, with Rob and Erich Völke ( Netherlands ) and Wee Kee Jin ( New Zealand) Daan has decided (1984) to focus on understanding the intentions and ideas of Taiji Chuan not only for martial arts applications but also for all kinds of daily movements ( lifting, pushing, pulling….)and sports ( tennis, golf, bowling…..).

In this way the basic Taiji principles as being relaxed, balanced, structured, can be practised daily during your work or at home . This keeps the body and mind healthy as long as possible…

Workshop 1 + 2 : The use of Taiji principles in daily activities or sports

Look for the Taiji principles in daily activities or sports in order to understand what you are doing and practice accordingly at home, in the shopping mall, railway station etc.

Taiji principles are: stay relaxed, stay upright, look for an adequate body alignment, close and open the groins (to release energy) and…… awareness!

There are a myriad of methods of qigong, varying in complexity and over the course of these sessions I'll be applying a range of techniques to allow the participants to develop a clearer sense of 'self' by connecting to our breaths, our bodies and gently opening and extending our range of movements and possibilities.

Up until this time, my passion had been Fin Swimming. I had just stopped the sport, and was looking to replace it with something, also, out of the ordinary.

Saying what Tai Chi is to me, is difficult because I do not know how I would be without. It brings a serenity to things in my life.

Now that I am practicing for 16 years I take pleasure in discovering and rediscovering the things that happen in the body during my practice, as well realizing that I still have details to work on to improve my posture.

Workshop 1 + 2 : Dragon Tai-Chi Fan partner form

I propose a workshop of the Fan Combat where the roles of “the attack” and “the defense” bring to one an awareness of the need to be correct in our postures for greater efficiency. Knowledge of operation of the fan is recommended to participate effectively. I will be pleased to share this moment with you.
