Wudang Travel 2017 – 8th Day – Taiji & Guqin

Shifu started a group Taiji 13 class today; we recorded the first of it on video, the second Taiji class was in the afternoon. During our practice, we had live Guqin music from Chen Shiyus Guqin teacher and Chen Shiyu himself. Funny fact: I caught Shifu explaining a Taiji movement to a student by pointing in his book at a picture of himself. You may also like Wudang Travel Group 2017 Wudang… Read More

Wudang Travel Group 2017 5th Day (66 von 70)

Today we learned more movements; some still felt a little tired since the weather became very hot again. Our older Gongfu brothers are like a family and gave us very detailed instructions. I felt that the coach for Baguazhang has a different style with his movements and so we learned that he is a student from Grandmaster Zhong Yunlong. He promised to give us a Xuan Wu Quan performance before we travel… Read More

Our training consisted only of required basic movements; later our group will learn Baguazhang, Xingyiquan, Taiji13, and Xuanmenjian. After training, we went to town and ordered… Read More
