INTRODUCTION TO TAIJIQUAN

(Tai Chi Chuan)

Private class, by invitation only


Taijiquan is more than just an excellent form of exercise: it allows you to relax, heal and rejuvenate your mind and body.

 Just 15 minutes a day in the comfort of your own home can provide you with all the exercise you need but cannot find the time nor the energy for.  The benefits are not just physical; the meditative aspects of Taijiquan and its emphasis on relaxed movement contribute to serenity of mind and clarity of thought.

Taijiquan is not only an efficient fighting art; it is also effective for curing and preventing organic and psychotic illness like hypertension, rheumatism, asthma, gastritis, insomnia, migraine, depression and nervousness.  It provides a gentle system of exercise for promoting health and vitality.

Taijiquan helps its adepts to become calm and composed. This comes about through the nature of Taijiquan practice itself. It is more suitable than most other martial arts for character development, as the very nature of its training, with its emphasis on gracefulness, gentleness, and harmonious energy flow, is intrinsic to the development of mental freshness and cosmic harmony.

CLASSES

 

(A) KOTA KINABALU GROUP CLASS        
 

Who can attend : This is a group class and is suitable for Novice (Adults).  For Beginners, it is recommended that you complete at least one fundamental Chi Kung course .   Taijiquan without chi kung is no longer Taijiquan; it becomes a form of gentle exercise which may provide some benefits in terms of blood circulation and recreation, but it is unlikely to give the type of vitality and mental freshness commonly ascribed to Taijiquan training.

Course Duration : 12 sessions. You can repeat the course if you want to.  Many students do this. This is deepening skills, which are more important than learning techniques.

Course Objectives : Past masters have said that there are three levels of Taijiquan training. At the first level, practitioners have good health. At the second level, practitioners have combat efficiency. And at the highest level, they have spiritual cultivation. It is unbelievable but true that in our school’s Taijiquan training, we aim to attain all these three achievements.  - Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit

Course Aims :

1   To acquire Taijiquan skills and techniques which you can competently practice on your own every day.
2   Experience that every Taijiquan movement is a training of  energy and mind.
3   Be able to perform Taijiquan movements with balance and grace.
4   Have some experience of energy flow and internal force.
5   Appreciate that Taijiquan can be used for self defense.

 

Course Syllabus :   Fundamentals of Taijiquan , Shaolin Wahnam  international syllabus with emphasis on "Cloud Hands Grasp Sparrow" set.

1   Cloud Hands Grasp Sparrow" is the same set as the 24-Pattern Simplified Taijiquan Set. Although it is called a simplified set, as it was simplified from the 108-Pattern Yang Style Taijiquan Set, it contains all important techniques in Taijiquan.  Grandmaster Wong added two patterns, Elbow Strike and Shoulder Strike, to the set so that it includes all the thirteen fundamental techniques of Taijiquan.
2   It has enough variation between the left and right sides of the body to give you a balanced workout.  It uses high postures, low postures, wide postures and narrow postures, with a nice balance of static stancework and dynamic stancework.
3   This course also includes relevant Chi Kung energy cultivating techniques.
    All important notes and learning videos will be given at the course.

 

Class Schedule :  Private class, beginning October 2021. By invitation only.

Important Notes :

1   Students are to attend the sessions continuously.
2   Classes will not be replaced or carried forward unless with prior notice and approval.
3   All classes are conducted with strict observation of the School Code of Conduct.
4   Kindly read and understand all the information provided on the homepage before applying.
5   Students must be committed to practise regularly and correctly not only for a short period but continuously after completion of the fundamental course to achieve desired results. It is essential for the progress of the student, that regular practice is maintained each day.
