Sunday 12th, 10am till 4pm (With two hours for lunch) Martial Training, here we look at some of the martial training methods from Taiji. We will be covering, the Large San Sau fighting form. This form is usually aimed at the more experienced Taiji practitioner, however Eli has a way of breaking down the movements so even a complete beginner can learn. The form is done in two ways, as a solo sequence with an A part and a B part, then you can put it together with a partner. Those people who are total new to martial arts will be advised to focus on the solo only. As a partner form you start off slowly like a dance to learn the correct way of moving, then once you are both comfortable with the movements you start to up the speed and power, until the form is finally done full speed and power. It is one of the best forms you can learn for teaching you about timing, balance, coordination, distancing and more. Cost: €70 Normal price €65 Active Members €35 First Timer or Uni student under 25
