June 16-19 (Fri-Mon)
Four Full Days!
Taijidao • Sabre Solo & Partner Practice
The taiji sabre (dao) is an important part of the taiji curriculum. Studying the sabre helps the taijiquan practitioner in many ways; it improves balance and coordination, heightens one's sense of martial awareness, and introduces the medium-length weapons. All aspects of taijiquan, including the taijidao, are based on the thirteen-powers theory. In this class, we will learn the basics of sabre handling, stance, and partner interaction while exploring this time-honoured theory. Please bring a wooden or metal sabre.
Chansigong in the 5 Section Taijiquan Solo Yang
On the Friday evening, an extra session will take place focusing on the application of 'silk-twining practice' (chansigong) in the context of the 5 Section Taijiquan Solo Yang Form. This class will open your eyes to taijiquan as an internal practice.
