Dates: November 10, 11. Saturday, 9:30 AM Registration, Class 10:00 AM – 4:30 or 5:00 PM. Sunday, 8:30-4:00 PM.
Location: Fairfield, Iowa. County Fairgrounds, Fair Board Extension Building, Highway 34, Fairfield.
Material: Lots of value for beginner, intermediate, and advanced students of all styles. Taiji Foundations, Circles, Rotation, and Movement. Introductory principles of form. Partner work, centering, balance, joint rotation for effortless integrated movement. Push hands drills, and advanced techniques for practice. First time in US: Master Chen will teach usage of resistance bands. (Several of Master Chen’s intermediate level students, with bands, will be in attendance, to help everyone benefit from both the partner work, and the usage of the bands.) This practice is especially valuable for cultivation of the precise correct flow of movement in circles and form practice. It develops a centered overall structure, with appropriate coordination of all joint rotations for optimal integrated whole body interaction. This practice has been the “secret” ingredient which enabled many Chen Taiji practitioners from Jinan, China, to attain the skills which brought them so many gold medals in the highest China National level form and push hands competitions. Now Master Chen will make this practice easily accessible for all of us who can attend this workshop.
