Not strictly lunchtime I know but something a bit different for a Saturday in Brockley, South London.
For the past couple of years we’ve covered the seminars of Sifu Rose Oliver who regularly brings over Taiji masters from Shanghai to a church hall in Brockley, how good is that? Posts here and here.
This year Rose is over on her own on Saturday 1st August from 10:00am to 4.00pm at St Hilda’s Church Hall, 375 Brockley Rd, Crofton Park, (enter on Brockley Rd.) Crofton Park/Honor Oak Park Station or buses 171 and 172.
The seminars suit all styles of Taiji and it doesn’t matter how much experience you have too. It’s at a great price (£40 for the day which is cheap compared to others) and taught in a fun and relaxed atmosphere, suitable for any level of Taiji practitioner from beginner upwards (or even if you’re just interested in the art and want to see what it is all about.)
I can personally recommend it and you will definitely have fun and leave the seminar with knowing a bit more than you did (and with a smile on your face too!) To confirm a place this year contact Rose by e-mail at roseinchina2006 (at) yahoo.co.uk P
I’m mid-way through a brilliant 2 day Taiji Seminar in Brockley organised by Sifu Rose Oliver of the Double Dragon Alliance Cultural Centre from Shanghai.
Each year Rose comes over with a master from China (for the last 3 years it’s been the excellent Master Wang Ming Bo). The seminars suit all styles of Taiji and it doesn’t matter what level of experience you are at too. It’s very cheap compared to other seminars (2 days for £80!) and taught in a fun and relaxed atmosphere and there’s definitely no whacking on the backs of the legs with a hard cane like Masters used to do when the students didn’t get something right in those old Kung Fu movies! Master Wang Ming Bo will smile at you good-naturedly when he has you on the floor in a armlock after you’ve just been thinking “I’ve got him this time!” and you just can’t help smiling back!
It’s probably a bit late now (unless you catch todays seminar: Sunday 30th June from 3-9pm at 50 Honor Oak Community Centre, Turnham Rd, London. Tel: 020 7639 2309) but something to keep in mind for next year if you’re at all interested in Taiji. P
