August 2016 Taiji China Seminar Tour.

This trip is organised to coincide with Master Chen Zhonghua’s seminar for Chinese and International students. The 7 days seminar will focus on Push Hands applications, but there will be ample opportunity to improve your form and or to learn a Chen style sword form (Straight Sword or Broad sword).

This is a trip for Taiji enthusiasts. You can practice as little or as much as you desire. There will be several Chinese instructors available during the period as well as international instructors who will be attending the seminar. This is not a ‘See China’ tour, but a Taiji training tour.

Assume you have two 1.5hr classes per week (for a total of 3 hrs per week), this trip gives you the opportunity to learn 35 weeks of material. (Based on 105 hours of training over 12 days)

More information to join from Australia (Sydney – QingDao)

And not moving. — in Gdynia.
