Practical Method Meetup in Vienna, Europe

Practical Method Meetup in Vienna, Europe
17th – 19th February 2017

What a cool experience! On 17th of February 2017 we had the first PM Meetup in Europe. A meetup which was dedicated to meet other groups practicing our art. It was no workshop in that sense, but we were lucky, that Rick Pietila, a disciple of Master Chen was still in Vienna at that time and was leading most of the training. He prepared a training schedule which build up over the course of the meetup. Everybody was exhausted afterwards, but happy to meet other peers and to have learned so much from Rick.

DQS-Sunrise-July-2015

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) http://www.chenpracticalmethod.com.au/home/china-trip-2016/

These are some of the local people and the people who arrived already from other countries. We have people coming from the UK, Belgium, Germany, Finland and Scotland. Worked on drills to do Elbow in without moving the hand. Change push into a pull.
And not moving. — in Gdynia.
