Lepo nedeljsko jutro za še malo taijija v Yangshuu

Prijeten veter pihlja skozi kostanjev gozd te južne Kitajske. Zaprtih oči stojim v zhang zhuangu in uživam s samim seboj, razširjam peng, misli pa se svobodno mešajo s čivkanjem tisočerih ptic. Danes je prost dan v taiji šoli mojstra Fuja, a mnogi učenci izkoriščajo to priložnost, da posamično osvežujejo tisto, kar so se naučili med tednom.

Vsak mojster je učenec svojega mojstra in Fu Nengbin ni izjema in zelo spoštuje svojega učitelja. Kako bi se drugače sploh lahko naučili taiji? Svojim učencem je mojster Fu velik vzor, ne samo v borilnih veščinah, temveč tudi kot oče in prijatelj. Učenci v šoli to zelo cenijo, brez da bi o tem sploh govorili. Zelo smo ponosni, da imamo takšnega učitelja. Vsi trenerji mojstra Fuja so mladi fantje, a vsi odsevajo isto spoštovanje in odnos. Mojster Fu jih vzgaja zelo striktno.

Po vsakem pouku se skupaj z mojstrom Fujem, trenerji in učenci vsedemo k obedu kot ena velika družina. To je tudi eden od vzrokov, zakaj se z ženo vračavaj v to šolo vsako leto. Sama sva vegetarijanca, a vsi so zelo pozorni. Mojster Fu se osebno zavzame, da so naše želje izpolnjene. Stric Džon, kot zahodnjaki kličemo kuharja, je res pravi strokovnjak. Hrano pripravi zelo okusno, pa vendar preprosto in nahranijo nas kot bi bili družinski člani.

Z ženo trenirava zelo naporno in poskušava dojeti in si zapomniti osnovna načela taijija kot jih uči mojster Fu. Zavedava se, da se brez trdnih osnov ne da ničesar graditi, še posebej ne v taijiju. Lahko izgubiš leta vadbe, če nimaš dobrega učitelja, ki je sam strokovnjak, hkrati pa zna znanje prenesti na učenca.

Mojster Fu letos novembra prihaja v Slovenijo in to bo prvi obisk tako elitnega taiji mojstra iz šole Chen Zhengleia. Nekateri učenci z najine šole v Sloveniji so se že pričeli učiti chen slog. Sicer pa je na splošno precejšnje zanimanje za obisk mojstra Fuja v Sloveniji, saj se ne zgodi tako pogosto, da bi tako velik učitelj obiskal to majhno deželo. Upamo, da bo naša šola z obiskom mojstra Fuja pripomogla pri vzpostavitivi linije Chen Zhengleia v Sloveniji.

Tai Chi Student Roy Hanney returns to China

This June a regular student at the Yangshuo Tai Chi and Kung Fu School will return to southern China to spend the summer training with us. We asked Roy what he likes about the school and what he wants to learn this summer.

Roy Hanney Training at Yangshuo Tai Chi School China“Well I first came to the school in 2009 and spent a week learning the short form. Then I came back for longer the following summer to learn the Laojia and stayed for 6 weeks. In the UK where I normally, live I train at the Seven Stars Yoga and Tai Chi School in Portsmouth. The teacher there, Andy Cullen is very experienced and we learn Yang Style with him. Last year I started teaching beginners under his supervision and I hope to do more of this when I get back to the UK. Making the change from Yang Style to Chen style has been very challenging but also very rewarding”.
“The important thing about the school for me is that the quality of teaching is very high. Master Fu always makes an effort to coach you when you need it and the attention you get from the assistant instructors is excellent. Of course the sense of community there is really nice as you live, eat and sleep with each other 24/7. One of the things I am very much looking forward to is a late afternoon swim in the river Li after training”.

“The long term aim for me is to get to a level where I can teach back in the UK. There are a few Chen style schools in England but not many following the lineage from GM Chen Zhenglai. This makes it difficult to get good instruction unless I come to China. With any luck I may get the chance to learn the Laojia Erliu this summer and for someone my age and fitness that is going to be very challenging”.

We all look forward to seeing you again Roy and hope we can make your stay this summer a worthwhile one.

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”.
