You have heard about the positive and negative circles. You have gone through in-with-elbow and out-with-hand thousands of times. You have even advanced and co-ordinated your feet with your hands — hands-in with front foot and hands-out with back foot. Now are you ready for the next step? Co-ordinated rhythmic changes using the basic building blocks of the positive and negative circles… Here is Master Chen Zhonghua in person to demonstrate…


Fantastic first day with applications, foundations and basic “don’t move” information. Great progress was demonstrated by all attendees showing how an extended concentrated learning situation can boost the body and understanding to grow. Grandmaster Chen’s instructions and guidance was as usual extraordinary. More Foundations and Yilu for the second day as well as a disciple ceremony. We are so looking forward to our last day of training and fellowship.
