It took me 51 hours to get home, but I am still carrying the spirit of DQS with me. It had been such an experience that will be impossible for me to ever forget.
The DQS experience is unique in that I don’t need to worry about anything else apart from Taiji, and every student there was trying to do the same. That really helped me to focus on what I was doing. The first week being the conference and competition and there were hundred of people. It took me 2 weeks to get in gear.
I am a slow learner, I only knew the first 22 moves then and most people had been practicing the form for a while. So the pressure to learn the form quickly didn’t help, It was the third week that I finally learnt it. From then on, I spent my time taking in the details Master Chen gave to everyone and training my body to move in a very demanding way, it was hard and painful at times, but it worked.
It was beyond my dream that I can actually do the form and feel what I am doing.
Thank you Master Chen for being so generous in your teaching. Hope that I will keep up the practice until we meet again
