Taiji Four-hands Eight-changes #2 (Sizheng Tuishou Ba Diandao) + Five-section Neigong

Master the traditional Yang-style Taijiquan Push-hands Full Curriculum! 

Friday evening: Five-section Brocade (Neigong)
This 20 minute long, five part neigong routine brings together the Five Words of Self-composure with taijiquan core-principles and can function as a warm-up or cool-down for your taijiquan practice. In this class we will go deeper into greater depth with this internal practice.

The five sections of the Five Words Brocade are designed to progressively loosen up and energize the practitioner, preparing her or him for taijiquan practice. They are: Section 1. The Spine; Section 2. The Arms; Section 3. The Legs. Section 4. The Energies; Section 5. Five Words Neigong.  

Saturday & Sunday: Four-hands Changes 
'Four-hands' practice, also known as peng, lu, ji, an, provides the foundation for a solid understanding of the taijiquan theory. Each of these the reversals changes the direction of the circle allowing players to operate the four-hands exercise smoothly and creatively. The reversals also hold the key to many of taijiquan's martial applications. This weekend we continue the study of the eight reversals (ba diandao) of the 'Four-square Push-hands' (sizheng tuishou) with a greater emphasis on martial application.


The Eight Reversals

1. Summit Reversal
2. Substitute Spiral Reversal
3. Rowing Reversal
4. Sitting Wrist Reversal
5. Hinder Spiral Reversal
6. Lower-hand Slip Reversal
7. Chop Reversal
8. Folding Palm Reversal

Large Roll-back (Dalu)

Master the traditional Yang-style Taijiquan Push-hands Full Curriculum!

The 'large roll-back' or dalu is the diagonal extension of 'four-hands' (sizheng tuishou). Dalu takes moving-step four-hands (huobu sizheng tuishou) a step further to complete the basic traditional push-hands training concept. Based on the energies cai, lie, zhou, kao, this training  develops agility, flow and coordination and introduces several important martial arts concepts.

Friday evening: Jue-shou or 'sensing-hands' is based on five simple operations which are the first five of twenty-five jin or 'kinetic energies' employed in taijiquan. Sensing-hands supports and complements four-hands training, making it much easier to understand and master. On this Friday evening we will explore the relationship between 'sensing-hands' and 'perceptual movement,' an important but little discussed concept in traditional taijiquan.

times: Freitag 19:00-21:30—Samstag/Sontag 10:00-17:30
cost: Full Weekend €200. Friday only: €35. Samstag/Sontag: €175.
