Master Ding visiting Dublin Open Masterclass: Rooting and Spiralling

January 19, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm


A hallmark of a good Tai Chi structure is a high level of stability, held effortlessly. Imagine trying to push a car, while standing on an ice skating ring. The body may be strong, but without rooting it will simply slide around.


From a strong rooted structure we are able to project power. Linear power, while strong, is easily read and diverted, spiralling power has a much more penetrating effect.


Send the day learning from Masters’ John and Alan Ding, focussing on these two complimentary aspects of Tai Chi.


For those new to the art we will be breaking these concepts down into simple achievable steps with exercises that can be practiced both solo, and with a partner. Through the day, plenty of partner work will broaden our understanding leaving us with ideas and exercises that we can take away and develop.

For those with experience, we will continue to test our current understanding, finding the weaknesses in our structure and layering on further subtleties. Small improvements properly applied produce a large effect!.
