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.

Thanks to Masters John and Alan Ding for their time visiting Dublin May 11-13th.

We spent the Day on the 11th focussing on Instructor level development in Swords, Dublin. As is so often said with respect to Tai Chi Chuan training, ‘less is more’. We took time in exploring the fundamentals of practice by deepening stillness, (doing less), to achieve greater effect, (achieving more), within posture testing training.

The 12th and 13th saw two open Masterclass days in Malahide with our work focussing on two critical aspects of Tai Chi practice, those being Intention and Spiral. Open Masterclasses are an opportunity for all interested parties to attend, see, and feel these principles in action. Firstly when being demonstrated by Sifu Ding or Master Alan Ding, secondly within ourselves when we take those teachings, practice them and make them work for ourselves.

As always, we had a great attendance at all days with representation from ever further afield. Gone are the days when visitors from Cork were considered exotic, with guests from Birmingham, London, France and Japan, (I know you live in London now Yuka but it’s a small liberty), in regular attendance. Thanks to those who made the effort to dust off your passports to visit, you’re always welcome.

I hear there’s a possibility of some Italian visitors at the next weekend, beyond those we’ve already lured to these emerald shores, keep your eyes open…

Until then, thanks Sifu for your effort and patience, and well done all who attended, we’ve gained the treasure of a little knowledge, now let’s apply the key, and go practice…
