A hallmark of the traditional Chinese arts is the depth of development a practitioner commits to. The expression is meaning that there is a discovery of joy that can only come from the bitter, hard work others shy away from. There is a recognition that beyond the skills we learn are more skills, if we can sweep away our weaknesses and focus on reaching our full Post Heaven potential.
Filmed over four classes in Zurich, Switzerland, Andrew begins with practices to free the joints and enliven the tendons before moving into muscle strengthening and coordination building exercises. The demand on the body will challenge the mind, helping participants forge an iron will and clarity of purpose.
Can we discover how much fun painfully hard work is?
Can we face our desire to quit and keep going?
Can we build the strength of character to embody—practicing as long as we live, only quitting when we die?
Come find out in this online training course!
This is a video seminar for the healthy, not a set of practices for the sick. Participants should be in an acceptable enough level of health at the start of the course that they will be able to learn the exercises to the best of their abilities, and be able to commit to practicing on their own as well as with the videos to maximize development. Practices vary from static to slow moving to fast moving, and involves moving, standing, sitting and floor work.
