Autumn 2017 Taijiquan Camp in Poland 

Laojia Yilu (Foundation/First Form)

I will be teaching a four day long camp in Poland at the beginning of November (Thursday 2nd November  - Sunday 5th November). This will be an intensive and demanding training camp for those who intend to gain taijiquan gong-fu. It is aimed at those who are looking to gain a better understanding of laojia yilu and want to develop the fundamental taiji skills that it develops. Training yilu is the foundation for all taiji skills.

The camp will help those attending better understand and to experience the type of practice required, as well as the quality of practice needed. Its principal objective is to improve students understanding of what taiji skill is and how to gain it through appropriate taiji training. It will include the teaching & corrections on laojia yilu. There will be the usual 5 laojia yilu forms practice before breakfast with teaching & correcting of sticking and silk-reeling  push hands (wan hua) in the evenings as an aid to understanding the importance of the day time training.  

Dates: The camp will be held from 7.30am Thursday 2nd November - 5.00pm Sunday 5th November 2017.
