Basic knowledge of Class one:
The Taiji three-part training method is an effective and beneficial training system created by Master Chen. With the traditional Daoist health-preserving concept, He combines the basics with the form, just to make taiji learning eaiser for the biginners and those students without any prior experience. Just as studying the basic strokes is important to learn the calligraphy, so the basics are important for martial arts. No basics, no forms.
Wudang basic postures, Daojiao Huogu Qigong and Taiji basic steps are the fundamentals of Sanfeng 13-form Taiji.
Daojiao Huogu Qigong is the core of the system. The purpose of this Qigong is to expel negative Qi from the body and to get pure and fresh energy. It is also good for our mind.It helps to attain a positive attitude toward life and relaxes the muscles and strengthens the bones and gives elasticity and vigor to the joint ligaments. It makes us relieve fatigue and restores physical ability. It is also effective in improving our resistant ability to inflammations and arthritis. At last, this Qigong is a great way of losing weight if you keep practicing.
Zhuanggong (stance training) - Dantian Tiaoxi Juqi Zhuang (The stance of adjusting breath to gather energy in Dan Tian) and Taiji Lingjing Zhuang (Taiji switching strength Stance) - are excellent exercises for firming the body and building the strenths of the legs.
San Feng 13-form Taiji Quan includes 5 steps and 8 positions in total. It is the original Taiji Quan form said to be created by Master Zhang Sanfeng. So it is also called the Mother Form of Wudang Taiji. Wudang Taiji Quan applies the soft to overcome the hard. It is an excellent way of body strengthening and self-defense. Practicing it, people can convert strength into inner energy. It will help to achieve longevity, to become more intelligent and stronger. Contemplating breathing is extremely important. It helps to change external force into internal force. To practice it right, you need to have a tranquil mood, to bend the chest while keeping the back straight, to relax shoulders and to lower elbows. It combines movements with stillness, the internal strength and external work complement each other.
Learning from the lower to the upper, from outside to inside, will help you to understand the cultivation of the interior and exterior, and unity of form and spirit. This is also the essence of Wudang Neijia (internal) Kungfu. This combination of forms has been created by Master Chen. While studying these techniques, you can improve your health in a short time.
