Workshops with Nils Klug
Taijiquan Principle Workshop 21 / 22 October 2017 in Oslo
Health and relaxation are often quoted as a reason to practise Taijiquan. One further aspect of Taijiquan is that of “mediation in movement”, which can be developed after the outer choreography of the form is internalised by the student. A third aspect of Taijiquan is commonly referred to as the “martial aspect”: Contrary to the solo exercises of e.g. Health Qigong, all movements of Taijiquan can be traced back to their martial applications.
Taking these roots seriously leads to a “hands-on” approach towards learning and teaching: Any Taijiquan movement can be tested (and improved!) by means of partner work. Working with a cooperative partner, we want to look behind the surface of those punches and throws. In practical exercises covering form application as well as Push Hands, you are invited to discover another layer of martial Taijiquan, which is closely related to the health aspect: the aspect of efficient movement, which includes both structural (bones, muscles, …) and energetic (momentum and timing) questions, and the communicative aspect of how to be a good partner.
As we will mainly work on the Taiji principles, the workshop is open to all styles and levels.
