In this first of three workshop Shifu Liu is teaching the Chen single sword form. The routine enables the student to understand and learn to project energy from the body to the end of the sword tip, and make play with the weapon as a continuous part of the body. Shifu Liu will work with posture correction and fajin practice, emphasis on yin yang, ’empty’ and ‘full’ aspects of movements of the form.
Shifu Liu will teach the Chen Tai Ji Quan Sword routine step by step, helping you to understand the parts of the sword used for different techniques such as chop and thrust.
Suitable for those with taiji experience of other Chen weapons and hand forms.
There will be the opportunity to buy tickets for all three of the workshops, other dates coming up on Saturdays 28 May + 18 June.
Please wear comfortable shoes and loose clothes for training, and wear masks to the venue if required, sign in for track and trace and please be aware of others and maintain a safe distance.
There will be rest breaks and Q&A opportunities.
Please bring your own taiji sword if possible, keeping it well wrapped in sword bag if travelling on public transport.
