Canada: Ottawa

September 14th-15th 2019
Eli Montaigue will be back in Ottawa for a weekend workshop

Suitable for both beginners and advanced.
At the workshop we will be covering:

  • Yang Lu Chan Taiji form, principals of movement. This can be applied to any Taiji form you are practicing, we will be using the Yang Lu Chan Form, taking postures from this form and having a look into the body mechanics of how to move, to create power, from a balance of structure and flow, also looking at how the correct muscular activation in the form is how we get the energy to flow.
    The main focus here will be the slow movement of the form, but we will also cover the Fa-jing aspects as well.

  • 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.

  • Bagua Circular form, Taking a few sets of movements in the same way as explained for the YLC form above
We will train 5 hours each day, with 90 minutes break for lunch.
