Canada: Ottawa

October 20th-21st 2018
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.

  • Training methods for loosening the body and staying relaxed during self defence.
    We will be taking certain techniques from the internal martial arts, and applying to them the folding principal. 
    The folding principal teaches you what to do when your technique does not work, your defence may be countered, so we show you how to best make that flow into something else, your attack may be blocked, go with it and come back at another angle. 
    This is one of the most important areas of practice for any martial art. The training methods will teach you how to stay loose under pressure, how to adapt with out thinking first, but learning to let your body simply react. 
    In order to train this, your punching partner will also have to learn how to throw a real punch with correct intent and realism, so you will be taught this as well. 

  • Bagua Circular form, starting from scratch with this beautiful form, step by step taking you through the details of the first palm change
We will train 5 hours each day, with 90 minutes break for lunch.
