The above is not in a lunchtime and lasts far more than an hour but if you’re interested in Taiji and would love to know more about the art or even if you’re a seasoned practitioner, we here at LIYLH can thoroughly recommend this event.

It’s a seminar in South London with Sifu Rose Oliver all the way from the Double Dragon Alliance Cultural Centre, Shanghai.

This seminar is suitable for all styles and levels of Taiji from the interested, the beginner to the experienced and will include: energy cultivation, basic root, waist and body integration exercises, Tong Bei Fajing & line walking drills, Yang style form applications, push hands practice and meditation preparation techniques. It’s all taught in a friendly and fun atmosphere, very informative and guaranteed to put a smile on your face.

It’s on Thursday 28th July 2016 from 7pm-10pm at St Hilda’s Church Hall, 375 Brockley Rd, Crofton Park, London SE23 1PL (Enter on Brockley Rd.) The cost is a mere £30 pre-booked or £35 on the door.

Here’s a mention of an excellent Taiji event coming up in Brockley in July. As featured here last year, Sifu Rose Oliver from Double Dragon Alliance comes over from Shanghai to the UK each year with a Master (for the last three it’s been the excellent Master Wang Ming Bo, above) for a series of seminars including a date in South London.

Saturday 19th July  from 10:30am to 5:30pm
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 (£60 for the day) and taught in a fun and relaxed atmosphere, suitable for any level of Taiji practitioner from beginner upwards. This year’s seminar will include pushing hands, Taiji form and applications, dantian & energy cultivation, energy training exercises, form corrections, Taiji philosophy and more. I can personally recommend the seminars and you will definitely leave the seminar with knowing a bit more than you did (and with a smile on your face!) P

A double dragon in London

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
