Omeida English School vs. Yangshuo Tai Chi & Kung Fu School – Volley Ball Competition!

Yesterday evening, after a whole week of hard training in the heat of Southern China, instructors and students of the Yangshuo Tai Chi & Kung Fu School started the weekend with another kind of physical and mental challenge: a volley ball competition organized by the Omeida Language College.

Tai Chi School -vs- Omeida Language College Volley Ball Match

4 teams competed, 2 representing Omeida and 2 from our Tai Chi school, with one “Chinese team” and one “International team” for each school. The first game put the Omeida Chinese team up against the Tai Chi School International team. With a score of 25/15, it was an easy victory for us. In the second game, our Chinese team did well, but lost against the Omeida International team, 21/25.
For the finale, as the sun was setting and the day getting cooler, the heat among the players got higher and higher. Although nothing big was at stake, just the growing friendship between English and Tai Chi schools, the players took the game very seriously, especially the French students from both teams, with their legendary competitive spirit.

The finale game was saw a playoff with 2 winning rounds of 15 points between the two International teams. With both teams at equal level, the game proved to be exciting and enjoyable for both players and spectators. Indeed, the first round was won by Omeida, 15/13. The Tai Chi students evened up the score in the second round, 15/13. In that second round, one of the players from our school, actually one of our instructors, injured his ankle by diving to catch the ball. We hope Fred will get better soon, so that our students can still benefit from his professional Tai Chi coaching. Finally, in a very noisy ambience and with suspense at its peak, the players from both teams gave everything in the final round. While the Tai Chi International team was initially leading, in the second part of the round, the Omeida team rallied eventually our school lost. A very close victory, 13/15 for Omeida.

Winners and losers, as well as some supporters, all gathered after the game to enjoy a friendly and delicious dinner at one of the local restaurants of the city, Hidden Dragon. We drank to health, to sports, and to friendship!

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.

Omeida Chinese Academy gets a taste of Tai Chi

On a sunny afternoon The Yangshuo Tai Chi and King Fu School invaded the street outside Omeida Chinese AcademyOmeida Chinese Academy to give students an incredible demonstration of the ancient practice of Tai Chi. The performance started with the graceful, flowing, movements, designed to encourage a channeling of inner energy and work with the opposing forces of the Yin and the Yang. Six students went through the basic flow to show the basis of Tai Chi.

Individual performances followed, incorporating the use of a straight sword. Traditionally, students study the weapons as a way of extending the Qi they have already developed. This requires the participant to bring their study to a higher level as positions are modified and the body and sword become one as do the mind and sword.

To demonstrate the idea of opposing force, the Tai Chi students maintained a block stance and encouraged Omeida’s students to try and knock them down by pushing at the waist. The stance is very strong and the holder watches his opponent to see which way he is moving and responds accordingly. Many students tried, and even with a difference in physical size, no Omeida student was able to knock down a Tai Chi student. Even the strongest looking student, failed when positioned properly, causing everyone laugh and cheer.

As the performance came to an end, Omedia’s students were invited to try the meditative flow of Tai Chi forthemselves. Fifteen students lined up in the street and were led through the movements. Some had tried Tai Chi before, but many had not. It was agreed that the movements left participants feeling rejuvenated and calmer. Many students said that they would like to incorporate Tai Chi into their daily lives as a way to relieve stress.

Omeida Chinese Academy has partnered with Master Fu’s Tai Chi and Kung Fu school to allow students more opportunity to learn about the traditional martial arts. Students will be able to see more demonstrations and participate for themselves as they learn Chinese in Yangshuo.
