DQS Review by Wendy Liang from Inner Mongolia

by Wendy Liang on 2019/08/05

I am an interpreter from Inner Mongolia, I continued to learn practical method for third time during the month of July .I felt honored to learn with Shabar from New York and Mike from France.
Shabar studies hard, and I was very impressed with his learning habits . He took a lot of notes , and also asked Coach Pang many questions about Taichi theory. For example, when performing the positive circle , Shabar wanted to make sure that he correctly understood whether or not the inner thigh (also known as Kua)should turn, whether the knees are opening and closing, and how to stretch out the elbow joints.
Mike is a coach working in Thailand now. He is enthusiastic about the practical method. He was also helpful during we exercise ,showing me how to adjust our body . Especially when doing the step back to whirl arms movement. For me personally, it was difficult to adjust my body position to a 45degree angle, however, with Mike instruction, I was able to overcome this problem.
Through coach pang’s demonstration, students also learned the proper way to do other techniques, including spiral rotation and the push hand, which I thought was the most interesting. Also, it was really helpful and gave students great confidence to learn how that even weaker people can protect themselves and defeat a stronger opponent by using only a small amout of effort.
We were all attracted to the magic of practical method, and I noticed that the more the students learned , the more interest they seemed to have, I personally learned so much, and really developed a deeper appreciation for Master Chen’s teaching and philosophy. I was quite impressed the whole month’s training, and I am inspired to move forward and keep learning , while improving my health through exercise, along with developing self defense skills.
Although good friendships were made during the month as we studied and trained together, the foreign students were also very interested in learning about the great culture of China. Hopefully ,they will take many good and positive views of China back to their home countries, encourage better understanding and relationships throughout the world.
Time really did seem to fly but quickly as we all stay busy and had fun together. I am a bit sad that the month of July has past, but I am happy to report that the students promised to try to return to Rizhao again next year.
I appreciate having the privilege of serving as a translator between coach Pang and the foreign students. Coach Pang is certainly a very effective teacher in explaining his ideas and demonstrating proper techniques. I hope that I was also successful in my effort to assist coach Pang communicate his thoughts to the students.
