Returning to learn Tai Chi at Yangshuo Tai Chi School

Learning Tai Chi Yangshuo China Autumn 2013Well with a weeks holiday for the National Day celebrations I booked a flight to Yangshuo for a return visit to the Yangshuo Tai Chi and Kung Fu School. This summer gone I gave up the chance to study tai chi at the school in favour of spending 6 weeks learning Chinese which was a good decision. None the less I did miss the school and felt very conflicted all the while I was in Yangshuo. So a week at the school seemed like a good idea to take some time to further learn tai chi at the school and it was. Unfortunately Master Fu was away in Zhejiang teaching a master class. Never mind though cause the wonderful Fu Weizuo was there and he is such a great teacher with a natural passion. I also had my first class with Moyu as instructor which shows how his confidence and skills are growing as well.

Training is always hard when you haven’t been at the school for a long time as it takes a while to build your fitness and a week is never long enough to do this. Consequently by Wednesday I was sore all over and took the afternoon off to have a rest and a very painful massage. I think every muscle ached and I whimpered like a baby under the masseurs hands. Still no pain no gain is what they say.

By Thursday of course I was starting to feel the benefit of daily practice and began to get the feeling back again. Even felt as though, at moments my movements were connected. Silly fantasy I know and my instructor was quick to point out that while I looked relaxed and fluid my movements looked all disconnected. So much for progress. The more you practice the harder it gets to improve, especially as you move on from the beginner level (I feel after 5 years I am entitled to hold my head up and claim to be a little more than a beginner… well only a little more).

I left the school on the Saturday, as usual, wanting more and feeling very motivated. Now all I have to do is translate that into my life at home and get some practice done!

Hello world from Master Fu Tai Chi!

master fu menuWell this is the first post from the new website, which is not quite live yet and still being beta tested. However we would appreciate feedback and comments for anyone interested in having a look. Short term the aim is to get the site up, running and integrated into social networks. Long term the aim is to get the page on the front page of search engines for “china tai chi”. We will eventually develop a Chinese language (and possibly other languages) version of the site but that will come later.

We are also trying to point the old website address (masterfu.net) at the new one but this is looking like a complex and long term aim now :0)

What we do need is for you to get in touch and give us ideas for blogs posts and if you already are blogging on your own site and it is directly related to Master Fu and/or Tai Chi we can feed it directly into the Facebook page for you. The aim here is to make the Facebook page a home for the community of students and teachers who have or are training with Master Fu.

Really this is a collective effort so your input will be very much appreciated!

For those of you who don’t know me yet (yes this is not actually Master Fu speaking here) my name is Roy and I have been training with Master Fu for a couple of years and before that with one of his students Master Mei Juan Luo. I hope to be back there this summer and will be training up some of the boys at the school to keep this website full of interesting content. We might make some ourselves who knows.

Anyway… welcome and please give us feedback on the new site.

Tai Chi Retreat: it all started with a quest for inner peace

Why not get along to Christine Liang’s wonderfully written blog about her experiences of training at the Yansguo Tai Chi & Kung Fu School. If you want to know what it is really like staying at the school and training here this is a good place to start. There is a short excerpt below and of you want to read more go and visit her blog.

“Yesterday, while having a crazy crazy day at work, with all kinds of issues driving me nuts, Master Fu came to my rescue. My phone rang and I saw it was him. It doesn’t happen often that Master Fu calls my mobile. Especially since I’ve left his school, two months ago.  So I grabbed my phone, anxious, excited, and I answered, “Fu Lao Shi, ni hao!”

Master Fu was at Shanghai Hongqiao Airport, on a transit, and he was just calling to say hi and check on me. He said he was sorry he couldn’t make time to see me, but being in Shanghai, he couldn’t help but wondering how I was doing in that crazy city.

I told him that I am doing fine, that there are days when I’m drowning myself so much into work that I almost forget where I live. But on overall, things are great, because I was lucky enough to find a company where people really care (about doing a good job, and about each other). I also told Master Fu how I’m struggling to keep up with my daily taichi practice, that unfortunately I can feel my form is regressing already.

Master Fu was all supportive, not pointing at anything that I should or should not do. He just said, “I’m glad you’re doing well and that’s great you’re trying to practice everyday. But don’t put too much pressure on yourself, just enjoy taichi and there’ll be a time in the future when you’ll be able to focus on the training again.” So simple, but so comforting”.
