May 1: More students are coming up to the mountain to learn from Master Chen.

Thoughts: When teacher teaches us a principle, we quickly “interpret” into something we already know. This is not learning. This is teaching ourself. We lost the real teachings. The right way is to take notes verbatim. Don’t need to understand right away. Follow the method.

May 2: Touch more points. It is like typing on a typewriter with all your fingers instead of typing with one finger.

Each movement requires a non-movement to support.

Dont Move is absolute in space. Don’t Move is relative. Don’t Move is also directional. Read more

Master Ge ChunYan 1

by Michael Koh on 2013/04/19

Master Ge ChunYan(戈春艳) was involved in the production of a Hong Kong movie “The GrandMaster”, “一代宗师”. She taught the leading actress Ms Zhang ZiYi “BaGuaZhang” for her role. Master Chen has invited Master Ge to DaQingShan from 25th to 31st May to teach BaGuaZhang.

“So when you feel you are doing it right, you are absolutely wrong; when you do it right, you don’t know it. There is 0 biofeedback, so the only thing left is to watch your own video and listen to the teacher’s instructions.” Master Zhonghua Chen

Chen Xu is staying at Daqingshan this summer. He switched to practical method after pushing with Charlie Gordon in 2010 tournament.

It has been a year. I pretty much did about 1,500 yilu’s till date. This trip, I like to focus a little more in push hand to experiment the moves in the form. The yilu’s I did has given me strength. I feel more stable and not as whimsy compared to last year. Read more
