Everyone interested in Taijiquan is welcome. There will be enough instructors to lead beginners classes as well as more advanced training. Through practicing together, many questions we have can be answered.

In Hong Junshengs Book, Translated by Master Chen Zhonghua there is this poem:


…You also need

To have good friends

With friends

You can help each other

                                                                     Hong Junsheng, from Learning

This is basically what this meetup is about.

So let’s practice together!

About Pawel Mueller

I'm a guy with many hobbies and interests, but since I came across Taijiquan it became my anchor in life. I was always interested in martial arts, but Taijiquan felt for me like finding the second matching sock in a messy underwear drawer in the morning after you overslept a little, but need to be on time for an important appointment. Having been to Chenjiagou (the Chen Village) for 3 times now, staying almost 4 weeks every time and practicing in Vienna with my former teacher the decision of switching after 4 years of hard work wasn't easy... But I learned so much, it was really worth every pain my ego had to take because of the switching to PM. I feel as if I left a muddy bumpy road and finally reached the highway. So I'm about 100 miles into the PM highway and there are (I don't know) about 40,000 to go. I'm curious where this will lead to, but I'm positive that I'll enjoy the trip.
