Tai Ji is an ancient Chinese internal martial art system, which combines profound principles, theories and martial art techniques. The slow, soft and continuously flowing movements appear mysterious on the surface. However, it is the cultivation of one's internal energy, mind and the physical body that make it so unique and challenging. To generate relaxation, Tai Ji practice requires a deep level of concentration and a focused mind, thus allowing the mind to lead and guide the body's energy.
Tai Ji is not only a martial art but has also been widely acknowledged as being an effective health exercise. Whether Tai Ji is practiced for health, as athletic sport or martial art it takes time, patience and qualitative practice to develop Tai Ji's internal properties. To achieve a high standard in Tai Ji training is a highly complex process.
On April 27th, we will have a very excellent teacher coming to TenWest to give a Tai Ji class, her name is Cynthia Frusha from Yang Family Tai Chi Asia Pacific Region Headquarters located here in Kunming.
Cynthia is a certified associate instructor with the International Yang Family Tai Ji Association.
In America Cynthia was teaching 23 Yang Family Tai Ji classes a month.
She also has a
Bachelors Degree in Biology from the University of Mississippi. Tai Ji Chuan had a very powerful effect on her life both physically and mentally.
She wanted to progress faster and learn as much as possible of Yang Family Tai Ji, Chinese philosophy and culture. In February of 2017, Cynthia came to Kunming China to train at the Yang Family Tai Ji Asia Pacific Region Headquarters.
Cynthia said to me, Tai Ji is also a friend for life.
It draws on Traditional Chinese medicine, yin yang theory and 5 elements theory.
Yang Family Tai Ji is practiced slowly, smoothly and evenly with large flowing movements.
It is graceful and very powerful.
So powerful it is said that “4 ounces can deflect 1000 pounds”.
At a high level of skill, a defender can use a small amount of energy to neutralize a far greater external force of an attacker.
In order to practice properly one must follow the 10 Essential Principles and understand the idea of keeping the acupuncture meridians and channels open throughout the body allowing qi energy to flow smoothly. So, it is important to find a good instructor!
For her, she learns something new every day in practice. By training from Yang Laoshi and Zheng Laoshi, Cynthia won a First Place medal at the Yang Family Shanxi International Tai Ji competition last year.
