Chen Shi Taijiquan Gongfu Jia Workshop, Fort Collins, CO.
June 30 – July 3:
This will be a focused training workshop for Traditional Chen Taijiquan Gongfu Jia, methods and line of Chen Zhaokui via his Son Chenyu, as taught to and by his 20th Generation Tudi Marin Spivack. Attendance is invitation, and/or application only. Attendance is tentatively capped at 20 participants with perhaps half the spots already spoken for. Participation will be strictly limited to those with the specific intent and ability to follow through on long term training in this particular art & line.
This is not for those looking for an introduction who are focused and comitted to another practice/style/school. This is for those who want a new direction and are fully ready to take it on. The training is very very challenging and we are not watering it down for commercial concerns. If you would like to attend you will have to individually apply via message or email explaining why you are a good fit forthis training and how it may fit into your future. While this may seem strict and rigid, no one else is bothering to do this and so be it. For carefree and easygoing training in Chen Taijiquan there are plenty of simple commercial offerings for those who find this unacceptable.
The training will be very detail rich and following the traditional model of establishing rigorous fundamental structural building blocks ad basic abilities before additional layers are placed above. The exact curriculum has not yet been decided, but it will certainly involve warm up, a beginning section of “Yi Lu”, some basic drills and throughout an everpresent focus on function, usage cultivation and Jin (powers) in every area of teaching. Commonly tuishou and many applications will also be involved. This will certainly be a very sweaty and sore experience, plan on that. Our particular frame of practice also involves a rather huge amount of detail, which many may already be aware of.
Duration will be 4 days at a cost that is still being determined, (based on some logistics and attendance) but will be quite reasonable. Details will be updated as arranged. Interested parties should contact here first then the host for arrangement.
