Thanks to Masters’ John and Alan Ding for their time and patience over last weekends 3 days of Tai Chi workshops in Dublin.

The first 2 days were spent with our Instructor and Advanced level 1 students focussing on deepening our understanding of body alignment and intention and their use in projection of power. We certainly had many comments of tired legs after such concentrated effort. As always, that effort yields results, both in our, if ever so slightly, deepened understating of Tai Chi, and in a significant appetite around the dinner table that evening. All well-earned I promise…

The last day was an open day, suitable for all levels and styles, focussing on 4 of the basic postures/movements of Tai Chi. We spent our day in partner work exploring their use and specific expression of power.

It’s always great to see people coming together, working together to understand and grow. All levels working together, growing together.

Everyone has something to offer everyone.

One of our Instructors has a saying that I think sums it up well, ‘when working with a junior student, if I’m not learning, I’m not listening enough’

Well said.

Keep your eyes open for future events, if you’re interested in learning, you’re welcome…

Master Ding Academy Ireland - Traditional Tai Chi Chuan

A good week, lots of work, lots of little discoveries...All participants (complete beginners and expereinced practitioners) had a great time learning and refining their "Cheung Kuen Se Ying" at the last 4 days intensive workshop in August 2018 for the Snake form held in Hamburg. As always, lots of hard work, fun and sharing. We also enjoyed our regular yearly traditional roasted pork knuckle meal at the bavarian beerhouse.

If you missed this year "Cheung Kuen Se Ying" workshop, please make sure you book early and not miss out on the two special workshops in 2019 - London & Hamburg. Check out Master Ding Academy website's event section.
