By Howard Choy (Cai Hong 蔡洪), B.Arch. (UNSW), Principal of Shou Yi Taijiquan and Qigong in Berlin and Europe.
There is a lot of misunderstanding and mis-information about the traditional Chinese concept of Qi 氣in Taijiquan and Qigong, as they became main-stream and globalised.
Some modern “masters” promoted Qi as being some kind of magical force that can throw you to the ground without even touching you, have you ever wonder why it works to some but not to others? How do you “fajing” with Qi? How can one man with Qi can withstand being pushed by 10 without losing his balance? What does it mean to circulate and to utilize your Qi for health and for self-defence?
How can I get more Qi? Come and find out, Howard can explain and show you how to cultivate and use your Qi in an efficacious way. Hopefully with this understanding, it will take you to another level in internal practice and improve your Taijiquan and Qigong further.
In a span of more than 50 years, Howard has practised, taught and studied with some high-quality lineage holders in both the Chen and Yang Family Taijiquan (Chen Xiao-Wang and Yang Sou-Chung), as well as in Choy Lee Fut Kung Fu and Lohan Qigong with Chen Yong-Fa. Howard has a practical and no-nonsense approach to the Internal Arts.
Come and join us, all are welcome, no matter what style or which school of Taijiquan and Qigong you come from. This is a one-off event and we are here to share, to ensure the continued survival and proper propagation of this unique Chinese cultural heritage.
