Tai Chi Intro Course
Studio108 is dedicated to the propagation of authentic Yang style Taijiquan (Tai Chi). With training methods to achieve one’s goals in the health, martial and spiritual aspects of Taijiquan.
The basic body skills, Chi Gong (Qigong), forms, weapon training, pushing hands and fighting skills are drawn from two Yang style lineages making what we consider to be one of the most complete and authentic Yang style transmissions available today.
As the system is taught, students work first through the Huang Sheng Shyan system as a direct doorway into the internal skills of Tai Chi. The technology heavily focuses on developing Song (鬆 complete release of all muscular tension) and Ting (聽 the skill of listening to one’s own body and subsequently the opponent’s body) and the total abandonment of external force or Li (力).
If and when students achieve proficiency in the methods above then one graduates to work on the Yang ShaoHou system which is considered the oldest form of Yang family Taijiquan available today. The outer forms and inner technologies learned at this stage teach the student to work with his/her already highly developed internal skills in a new and more complex method. The training is much more demanding and difficult and essentially unachievable without achievement in the previous material.
