Taijiquan Einführungsform, die ersten 8 Positionen des beginner course

Taijiquan – course for beginners

The beginner course is an introduction to Qigong and the Taijiquan Yang style. This course includes the Taiji Qigong 18 Style (Part 1, Part 2) and the first 8 postures of the Taijiquan Yang style, as Grandmaster William C. C. Chen has been teaching since 1950.
The Taiji-Qigong 18 Style has a special emphasis on rooting with the ground below the body center and on ease and relaxation of the upper body. Thus, it is very suitable as a preparation for the type of Taijiquan as taught by William C.C. Chen, since the same principle is based on both. The Qigong is somewhat easier to learn, since every movement is repeated a few times. In Taijiquan, on the other hand, one movement follows the next. The Taijiquan form can also be seen as Qigong, but Taijiquan is also a member of the “Inner Martial Arts” family.

The goal is to carry out the first 8 movements of the Taijiform (connected to a small, approximately five-minute form) and the 18 movements of the Taiji-Qigong 18 Style independently after 3 training days. If more than 3 days are available, the daily sequence can be changed accordingly. This schedule is for people on holiday with very little time, but it is better to plan a week for the course. As of today I have always made an individuel schedule with my pupils. For those who have the time to do so, there is the possibility to complete the short form with 60 movements. It is also possible to learn the “8 brocade” Qigong, the long form of the Taijiquan Yang style with 132 movements and the sword form according to William C.C. Chen.
