The first camp—The Square—will concentrate on Si-zheng Tui-shou, or 'Four-hands', the cornerstone partner exercise in the study of the taijiquan. We will take the drill apart and work it from technical, theoretical and energetic perspectives.

• In the second camp—The Diagonal—focus will shift to the Dalu aka. the 'Large Roll-back' with its orientation toward diagonal, corner energies. Here we will also focus on technical and other elements.

This work will be of great interest to those who have been training the
25 Energies over the last years at this camp. This is where traditional practices illuminate the energetic and philosophical underpinnings of the art.
