TAIJI / TAI CHI PUSH HANDS
Open Push Hands Exchange Group Hosted by SIfu Lester Holmes of Tai Chi Connection.
Meihua Quan “Pillars of Plum Blossom Fist” is one of the oldest & most traditional styles of Kung Fu.
Meihuazhuang 干支五式梅花桩, originates from Kunlun and is considered the ancestor of the Chinese Martial Arts. It’s the most cultural of the Kung Fu styles, as it includes branches of Calligraphy, Feng Shui, Medicine etc. However, it is little known outside of China. Many Kung Fu schools around the world incorporate Plum Flower forms into their systems, but until now, there has never been an international governing body. As Vice President of the Meihua Quan Association China & Founder of the International Meihua Quan Federation, Shifu Yan Jun has taken the initiative to share this beautiful Chinese art with the rest of the world.
During this exciting once in a lifetime seminar, you will learn the Plum Flower Boxing 5 Postures, which are a type of Qi Gong for Health, Longevity, Strength & Flexibility. You will be taught the Organs, Meridians, Elements & Breathing Techniques associated with each posture. In addition, you will learn the 1st Wu Shi Form, Applications and Qin Na Locking/Grappling Techniques.
