After returning from Tai An, unfortunately I caught a cold, so I stayed home a couple of days to sleep it off…

eventually, some good ol’ chinese noodle soup did the trick ;)

Training in Jan 2018 i

 PMWLM003Hej y’all!

over the turn of the year, we found new rooms for our friday evening training, and we are contineously exercising ourselves in free and half free push hands sessions each fortnight on monday evenings!
People drop in regularly to get an idea of what the practical method is about, which motivates both me and the Berlin team (Carlotta, Kerstin and Lutz) to keep up the work and spread news about the system. Also, people from other european countries come by from time to time, and we hope we can assist.
Here’s some photos of this years training so far… Read more

15 years back…

luckyMeIn 2003 I moved to Berlin and started practising Taijiquan when meeting Veit Voigt who taught Wu Style Taijiquan, which he learned from Master Ma Jiangbao. In 2005 I changed to Chen Style Taijiquan, as I had been introduced to Juergen Herkt, who taught the ‘Lao Jia Yi Lu’ by Master Chen Xiaowang. Juergen Herkt died in 2009. Then, I was by myself for one year without someone guiding my training.

In 2010 my attention was brought to Michael Winkler. At that time he was just about to change his training entirely to Chen Style Taijiquan Practical Method as taught by Master Chen Zhonghua. Throughout the years, Michael Winkler had been able to host Master Chen Zhonghua in Berlin once a year for workshops and private trainings which I joined, and I also took part in a summer camp in Italy with Master Chen Zhonghua in 2012.

2018MarchBerlin

We are glad to announce that the second European Practical Method Meet-up will take place in
Berlin on the first weekend of March 2018 (3rd & 4th).
Please let us know if you’re coming, as soon as possible (deadline January the 8th), so we can book
an appropriate training hall and organize a daily schedule.
The event is free, but there will be costs to share for the hall. The sooner you register the sooner we
can book, the cheaper it gets.
Registration is done simply by emailing us to practicalmethod.europe@gmail.com
If you are not from Europe you can join anyway, of course :-)
This get-together is for all PM practitioners. It is not a workshop, but rather a training together to
exchange our experiences.
So there will be no teaching for beginners. That means you should know at least
the first 13 moves and the core foundations. You can struggle through the rest of the Yilu with us.
If you need more information feel free to ask us (practicalmethod.europe@gmail.com)
