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.


Let’s practice together!


We will of course take necessary steps to protect us against covid-19. Since movement and outdoor activities strengthen the immune system, practicing Chen Style Taijiquan Practical Method is a good way to keep us healthy. 

For more information just drop us an email to practicalmethod.europe@gmail.com or contact us in the english WeChat group (contact Pawel or Damian there)


See you in Żywiec

Rough Schedule

During the last view Meet-Ups we figured out, that it would be best, to stay together in one place. This way nobody has to leave and we can continue to practice and to exchange up until late. I remember last year’s sessions up until 4am in the morning. 

This kind of staying together is also very deep in the polish tradition. So Damian will pick a place where we can be together and continue our exchange during a campfire and while watching the same stars that Chen Fake watched during his training.


Friday evening:

     Get-Together in Zywiec to get to our secret training camp.



Daqing Shan training schedule:


6:30am Early morning training: 10 Yilus; Foundation set; Partner exercises 

7:30am Breakfast

9:00am Morning training: Yilus; specific exercises (kua opening)

12:00pm Lunch

3:00pm Afternoon training: Yilus; free training; possibility to push with each other

6:00pm Supper

7:30pm Evening training: Pushing hands



Early morning training like on saturday, breakfast and then free training, talking, trying, experimenting. Some might need to leave after lunch. For those who don’t we can do more Yilus and all that other stuff in the afternoon as well or do touristic things.


From experience we can tell that such a get-together will boost our understanding by lightyears.


Organisational Matters

There is no fee for this event, but we will share costs for training facilities among all participants equally. If we are 30 people the costs per person will drop below EUR 20,-

You’ll need to pay for your room yourself. Last year we had a hotel with a swimming pool and shared rooms and the cost per Person for three nights was close to EUR 100,-. It was gorgeous. 

The airport is not far away. If you need transportation, just contact us. Everything can be arranged.


Registration is done simply by emailing us to practicalmethod.europe@gmail.com.


If you are not from Europe you can join anyway, of course 🙂
