What we're about

Taiji – Monthly Beginners Classes are offered during the first week of each month. We offer a training system passed down and developed through a long lineage of good teachers and sages. We teach the system laid out by Patrick Kelly a senior inner student of Master Huang Xingxian (1910-1992) Our overriding principle is to shut down the surface part of the mind so that we may awaken the deeper aspects of the mind. Five Loosening Exercises: A set of basic training methods, created by Master Huang Xingxian as preparation for the Taiji Form and Taiji Tuishou. The Five Loosening Exercises teach the Taiji principles of “Loosening the muscles, freeing the joints, calming the emotions and quietening the mind”. 37 Move Taiji Yang Short Form: The Taiji Form trains the Mind – energy – body connection and develops inner-power and is based on the Form created by Grand Master Yang Cheng-Fu in Shanghai (1931). One of Yang’s best disciples Master Cheng Man-Ching (1902-1975), also known as the “Master of Five Excellences”, shortened the Form to 37 Moves, which made it faster to teach and learn. Master Huang Xingxian, perhaps the best disciple of Master Cheng and one of the highest level masters of the past generation, further refined the Taiji Form of Grand Master Yang. The Taiji Form is divided into 5 sections. Each section can be learned and practiced independently. Fixed-Pattern Pushing Hands: These build sensitivity to the partner’s power and introduce the principles of pushing hands, yielding, neutralising and issuing. Meditation: We teach an “active” meditation moving beyond the quiet watchful state, beyond the quiet dreamy state, passing through the sensations of the body to the energy and beyond www.taichi.co.nz
