I have been running a series of seminars since 2017 teaching the first forms of Chen style Taijiquan to senior students. Generally there have been three seminars a year and include lecture material, new learning and polishing of old learning. Recently we have also practised basic Tui Shou (Pushing Hands) training and we look forward to more of that when Master Tse returns to New Zealand next February. There was a break this year as I was overseas for a few months however the next seminar is October 19th at Te Horo Hall 12pm – 4pm.
I have decided to open up the seminar series to beginners who may wish to begin their Chen Taijiquan journey (or may have recently started) and through and through an intensive 3-4 hours learning get a good head start. They may then follow up in classes or wait until the next seminar later this year probably.
These seminars have been great fun and as Sifu, I have been impressed by the focus and learning exhibited by the students – and their enthusiasm! As Master Tse Wei Jing often comments, practising Chen Taijiquan is addictive – it is such a good feeling that comes from the spiral movements. And of course, although a martial art, it is also very good for your health.
